The Sea Beneath Us
by Cathy Slusser




Overview -
Etta just wants a home, a safe haven for her family; her daughter Florence wants to make a positive difference in the world. After suffering tragic loss, Etta walls off her heart. Florence opens hers to love again. Though they do not understand each other, both understand the struggle with cultural expectations of the day for women. They also grapple with personal insecurity and faith. Set in the early twentieth century, the stories of Etta and Florence intertwine as each seeks fulfillment. Follow them from Midwest America to the state of New York; from the Isle of Pines, a tropical spot off the coast of Cuba, to the heart of American power, Washington, DC. From Cathy Slusser, professional historian and the author of the popular From A Heavenly Land trilogy, comes a new story of a mother, Etta, and her daughter, Florence. Based upon the lives of her grandmother and great-grandmother, Slusser weaves a tale of immigration, women's rights, and foreign policy, real and relevant to today's world, and as compelling as it is enchanting.
