Karen White: The Beach Trees

In Karen White’s latest novel, The Beach Trees, Julie Holt was just 12 years old when her little sister went missing, never to be seen again. The loss destroyed Julie’s family. Years later, Julie meets a young artist who reminds her of her sister and sparks a sense of protectiveness in her. Their relationship starts Julie on a painful and difficult journey of recovery and reconciliation, one that leads her to the Gulf Coast in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. 11:30 a.m. Brazos Bookstore, 2421 Bissonnet.
