Sunrise on the Battery by Beth Webb Hart takes place in Charlestown, South Carolina. The story revolves around the Scoville family – Jackson, Mary Lynn, Catherine, Lilla and Casey. Jackson and Mary Lynn both faced challenges during their childhoods and decided they wanted to provide a better life for their three daughters. They worked hard to fit into the Charlestown social circles. They pushed their daughters to be the best they could be. Although it looked like they had everything Mary Lynn still felt an emptiness that lead her to search for a relationship with God. While on her own search for God she prayed that her husband, Jackson, would find Him. Is Mary Lynn ready to receive the answer to her prayers?
This was the first book that I read by this author and I did like it. I must admit it took me some time to get into it as it is told from three different points of view. The story is told by Jackson, Mary Lynn and Catherine. At times I found it difficult to follow because there were so many characters and relationships to remember. In the end I really did like this book and would recommend it to others.
