Everyone in Orchard Hill knows Lizzy's bad reputation and won't let her forget it. But in the summer of 1959, Billy Ray Davenport, an itinerant minister's son, arrives in town. He discovers an indomitable strength behind the allure his father says is 'designed to lead men astray.'

Billy Ray thinks he could be the one who helps her swim against the tide of disapproval; he could free her once and for all. But a stormy path awaits the unlikely pair.

A new novel from award-winning author, Karen M Cox, At the Edge of the Sea is a realistic love story told by an idealistic young man. As society's sands shift under his feet, Billy Ray navigates the ocean of approaching adulthood- a journey as ever-changing and ancient as the sea itself.

In this intoxicating and heartfelt romance set in 1959, a minister’s son falls headlong for the wrong kind of girl. Billy Ray Davenport’s life has always been guided by the Bible and his intense yet devoted father. After being accepted to med school, Billy Ray spends a summer shadowing local physician Dr. Miller and learning different approaches to treating patients. An instantaneous and overwhelming attraction to Lizzy, whom the townspeople call a slut, ties the sheltered Billy Ray in knots. Despite numerous warnings to steer clear of Lizzy, including some from Dr. Miller’s own daughter, Billy Ray is besotted by her striking looks and drawn in by a beautiful soul that he senses beneath the surface. Cox (Find Wonder in All Things) vividly captures the tensions and nuances of smalltown 1950s life. Billy Ray and Lizzy’s roller-coaster relationship, captivating in its intensity and honesty, is a brutal fight against all odds, and Billy Ray’s inner struggle to do the right thing is surprisingly real. Readers will be entertained and inspired by this winning tale. (BookLife)
