    An offbeat love story

    Nicky Sullivan gives her life to nurturing others: her mother and brother, animals she rescues - everyone but herself. When she is given the opportunity for a beach vacation, we wonder whether she can actually use it to recharge and give attention to creating the exquisite drawings that have been her sustenance. Of course she finds others to care for - delightful characters: Mac, the grizzled shrimp fisherman and Uta the "turtle lady." Trip Alston, son of a wealthy family, seems more interested in saving his beloved island from condominium developers than in romance. There's even a murder to solve. But in the end, this is a love story about the Carolina low country and the people who are a part of it.
    Senehi writes about women who discover inner strength and love of the land.

    Save the South Carolina beaches

    Nicky Sullivan of Boston seeks peace and renewal on a South Carolina barrier island but finds mystery and plots within plots when she tries to help the leatherneck turtles keep their nesting places. Taste the shrimp, feel the sand and smell the salt in the air in Rose Senehi¿s novel, Pelican Watch. The islands routinely alter shape due to winds, surf and hurricanes but developers want to attack the soul of the island by destroying the dunes and animal habitat in order to add more condominiums to the coastline. Triplett Alston, a low country gentleman, is on her side and sneaks into her heart despite interference from her mentally ill brother and increasing tension from the zoning board. This is a must read for all those interested in romance, mystery and saving the environment.

    Pelican Watch

    Rose Senehi is an amazingly descriptive writer. Her knack for giving haunting details practically puts you in the room with the characters. I was enraptured from the prologue. This is a wonderfully complex story that includes elements of mystery, romance, family heritage, and self discovery set in an area rich with Southern culture. I would recommend this book to anyone.

    Wonderful read!

    A review of the book Pelican Watch authored by Rose Senehi This is a wonderful story exemplifying how our lives can positively impact others and how these relationships affect, and also change, us. The author provides us this experience through the characters in Pelican Watch. Nicky understands she is free from the burdens of responsibility for others and no longer feels guilty to independently live her own life. Tripp realizes he can actually love another person and not be centered on himself and his heritage. Mac comes to see his strengths after running away from them most of his life because of a teenage tragedy. Cheryl becomes confident that her roots are very important to her happiness and existence. Others too find ways to make their lives more meaningful. The setting is truly the Deep South. Customs, environment and attitudes all overlap to give the reader a genuine feeling of another time and place, but still, not so very long ago. The story provides interesting and accurate information tied together with an excitement and tempo that keeps one eager to read the next chapter. Sometimes one wished there was more detail and slower transitions. However, the author gets the job done making the book an enjoyable read! Rose Senehi¿s has learned her subject well, telling a complimentary story about the natives of Pawleys Island, South Carolina. There is a great deal to learn from these people who lived and matured in this part of our country. What a great movie this would make! By Bruce D Stelow
