"This heart-warming journal shares the joys of a mother and daughter's special bond and their summer together as Turtle Team volunteers. Photographs blend with art and prose to bring to life this loving story of their time together protecting endangered loggerhead sea turtles. Join mother and daughter as they patrol the beaches searching for sea turtle nests, and then stand with them under starry skies as they protect the eggs and young hatchlings. Turtle Summer is the journal described in Swimming Lessons, the sequel to Mary Alice Monroe's New York Times bestselling novel, The Beach House. "
