In this delightful and heartfelt tribute to her home island, the author of the ''How To Live'' books focuses on Long Beach Island, N.J, with an original kind of illustrated prose-poem/love song. In its pages, the award-winning writer celebrates enduring simple truths and feelings about this eighteen-mile long stretch of sand ''...because I think it is important to say what you love in this life... especially if what you love is vulnerable. And Long Beach Island is that. It's just a beautiful accident of tide and currents, a moment of grace amid storm.''
This illustrated gift book was spontaneously born of a poem she painted onto a sign in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy. It resonated deeply with Long Beach Islanders. Composed as a love letter to the Island, it begins... ''My old friend, I love your curling waves and stretching sands, your salt-drenched air. I love your sunny days, your gray days too -- all your many moods... I love how you're an endless summer. I love the arc of your bridge, the first glimpse of refuge.... I love your sunsets and your surfers, the children on your beach, the castles that they build. I love your innocence....''
Sandy's words captured a shared love for Long Beach Island, its people, its familiar rituals -- and what was almost lost in the storm.
