SEARCH FOR TREASURE: NY Times best-selling author Mary Alice Monroe and co-author Angela May will discuss their new book in The Islanders series
Meet, mingle with and hear from New York Times best-selling author Mary Alice Monroe and co-author Angela May as they discuss their most recent book in their award-winning series, The Islanders. The event will be in The Daniel Island Club ballroom and includes hors d’oeuvres, a speaker’s presentation, and a book signing.
The new book, “Search for Treasure,” is the sequel to their bestselling book, “The Islanders” and is a beautiful story of friendship, loss, and the healing power of nature. It is geared toward middle-grade readers, but readers of all ages will enjoy this heart-warming story set locally on Dewees Island.
The story: Jake Potter is back on Dewees Island for another summer with his grandmother, Honey, and his friends Macon and Lovie. Jake is excited that his dad will also be on the island as he continues to recover from his war injuries. Father and son must get used to a new normal, which isn’t easy. His dad discovered treasure coins as a child and stored them in an old tree fort on the island. Jake knows if he can find the tree fort, maybe his dad will be happy again – and he knows Macon and Lovie are the perfect fellow treasure hunters. The search for the treasure is on!
Meanwhile, Macon is adjusting to being a big brother, while Lovie is navigating a new relationship with the two visiting boys on the island. The treasure search leads them to battle some unwelcome guests on the island – both the two and four-legged kind!
On The Islanders biggest quest yet, the three friends realize that the treasures they really want in life were with them all along.
