At the Water’s Edge by Sara Gruen

Mixed Media

From the author of Water for Elephants comes this elegant tale of Maddie, an American debutante recently married to a wealthy ne’er-do-well, and their trip to Scotland during the last weeks of World War II to film the Loch Ness Monster.
Maddie is a spoiled rich kid who has never worked or even made her bed or cooked a meal. Gruen’s first, somewhat critical portrayal slowly evolves into heartfelt sympathy for her character. Gruen is a wonderful storyteller whose writing keeps the reader pursuing the next surprising turn of events. (Spiegel & Grau)
