Richly detailed and brimming with colorful small-town characters, FERRIS BEACH is the story of the changing south in the 1970s.
Kate, daughter of Cleve and Alfred Tennyson Burns, is at a stage of life when everything is both wonderful and terrible. She's also caught in a kind of tug-of-war for her spirit, a contest between her prim and sensible mother and her beautiful reckless cousin, Angela.
Angela lives by the ocean, across the coastal plain, at a place called Ferris Beach. Angela is everything that Cleve Burns is not -- imaginative and untethered as the wind. On one side, Kate faces the pull of reason and safety and on the other the lure of romance, mystery and danger.
