With his best friend, Hank, Ellis decides that the only way to regain his father's favor is to succeed where the Colonel once very publicly failed--by hunting down the famous Loch Ness monster. Maddie reluctantly follows them across the Atlantic, leaving her sheltered world behind. The trio find themselves in a remote village in the Scottish Highlands, where the locals have nothing but contempt for the privileged interlopers. Maddie is left on her own at the isolated inn, where food is rationed, fuel is scarce, and a knock from the postman can bring tragic news. Yet she finds herself falling in love with the stark beauty and subtle magic of the Scottish countryside. Gradually she comes to know the villagers, and the friendships she forms with two young women open her up to a larger world than she knew existed. Maddie begins to see that nothing is as it first appears: the values she holds dear prove unsustainable, and monsters lurk where they are least expected. As she embraces a fuller sense of who she might be, Maddie becomes aware not only of the dark forces around her but of life's beauty and surprising possibilities., At the water's edge :a novel /Sara Gruen., At the water's edgea novel /Sara Gruen, New York times bestselling author of Water for elephants., At the water's edgea novel /Sara Gruen., Audiobooks., BYVA, C0BYV, CD FIC HISTORY GRUEN, DLCengDLCrdaNjBwBTGCmBT, Eyre, Justine,narrator., FIC HISTORY GRUEN, FICTION / Historical., Fathers and sons, Findaway World, LLC., Findaway WorldPLAYfax00084927, First edition., Gruen, Sara,author., Gruen, Sara., Highlands (Scotland), Historical fiction., Issued on Playaway, a dedicated audio media player., Loch Ness monster, MOM9314836BT0015665525L41592000000ACPL33021026942935, MOM9314836BT0015665525L41592000000ACPL33021026942943, MOM9314836BT0015665525L41592000000ACPL33021026942950, New York :Spiegel & Grau,[2015], New York, New York :Random House Audio,[2015], NjBwBTengNjBwBTrdaNjBwBT, One set of earphones and one AAA battery required for listening., PLAYAWAY FIC HISTORY GRUEN, PLAYAengrdaPLAYAOCLCOBYV, PS3607.R696A94 2015, PS3607.R696A94 2015b, PS3607.R696A94 2015d, Playaway Digital Audio., Previously released by Random House LLC, ℗2015., RHA 4917Random House Audio, Random House (Firm), Random House Audio Publishing., Read by Justine Eyre., Release date supplied by publisher., Socialites, Solon, Ohio :Findaway World, LLC,[2015], Title from Playaway label., Title from container., Unabridged., While her brother, Ellis, and his friend attempt to find the Loch Ness Monster in an attempt to get back into her father's good graces, Maddie is left on her own in World War II-era Scotland and experiences a social awakening., While her brother, Ellis, and his friend try to find the Loch Ness monster in an attempt to get back into her father's good graces, Maddie is left on her own in World War II-era Scotland and experiences a social awakening., audio, audio disc, audio fileACLEP, audio fileCD audio, audios, bl2015007031, digital, n-us-id, othernz, othersz, pcc, spoken word, spoken wordspw, text, unmediated, unmediatedn, volume, ℗2015
