The story focuses on Bud and Carolina, a married couple working the shrimp business. One day Bud goes out on his boat and meets with a horrible accident. The rest of the story consists mainly of flashbacks and the tale of the ups and downs of their marriage.
The flashbacks is honestly a neat effect and a fine way to tell the story once one adjusts to the constantly switching dates. I thoroughly enjoyed the celebration of marriage as well as that of the conservation of both community and environment. But the novel fell into that old chick-lit mistake of too much emotion and not enough plot to carry it through.
"Last Light Over Carolina" is enjoyable and likeable, and I found myself caught up in the lives and emotions of the characters. But plotwise? Not much there.
I am very happy with my purchase from Amazon.
