The real-life inspiration for Chesapeake Shores
Sherryl Woods weaves together the stories of the real people who shaped this seaside Virginia town. She depicts her family dinners-relatives of all ages crowded onto benches as they cracked piles of Maryland blue crabs. She artfully captures the essence of Colonial Beach and makes us yearn for small town life.
Woods's own memories frame dozens of true stories-from the unique history of Colonial Beach, to first-hand accounts of the Oyster Wars that consumed the fishing community, to stories of neighborhood merchants who made it a point to know customers by name, farmers, fishermen, restaurateurs, hoteliers, pastors, librarians and military folk. Her research and interviews give life to the personalities of a very special place.
"Sherryl Woods writes emotionally satisfying novels about family, friendship and home. Truly feel-great reads!"-Debbie Macomber
"Sherryl Woods gives her characters depth, intensity and the right amount of humor."-RT Book Reviews
