Summary
In 1974, America was changing, but Charleston remained eternally the same. Lovie had always done what was expected--marrying the son of a historic Charleston family, Stratton Rutledge, and turning over her fortune and fate to his control. But one thing she steadfastly refuses to relinquish: her family's old seaside cottage. The precious summers spent on the barrier island are Lovie's refuge. Here, she can escape with her children from the social expectations of her traditional Southern mother, and her overbearing husband's ambition and philandering. Here, she indulges her lifelong vocation as a "Turtle Lady, " tending the loggerhead sea turtles that lay their eggs in the warm night sand and then slip back into the sea. This summer, however, is different. Visiting biologist Russell Bennett arrives on the island to reasearch the loggerheads. What begins as a shared passion for the turles changes to a love far more passionate and profound than Lovie has ever known--but one that forces her to face the most agonizing decision of her life
