The first release in The Beach House series is the story of four women, friends from childhood, who reunite to celebrate their fortieth birthdays. After the distance of time and geography, they look forward to the camaraderie of old friends and the escape from everyday life as they stay at a San Diego beach house.

When thoughts and discussion turn to the history of their friendship, will problems of the past threaten to overtake the present?

Editorial Reviews

“Sally John seamlessly ties the sub–plots together through masterful writing. Her secondary characters are just as delightful as the main ones and tote a tad of mystery around them. When I turned the last page of The Beach House, I sighed. I didn’t want it to end. I wanted to know more about these ladies. But, oh, what a satisfying read—one of the best of the year. This was the first novel I’d read by Sally John, but you can bet I’ll seek out other novels by her. She’s hooked another fan.”

“I wasn’t familiar with Sally John before reading The Beach House. I really didn’t expect that I would enjoy the book. Boy was I wrong! She writes an enthralling story with fully developed characters that are experiencing the problems that many women of faith face daily. And she does it with warmth, realism, and sensitivity. The four friends, an intriguing beach house and two men of God are frosting to this delicious novel. If you want to laugh, are not ashamed to read a novel and shed a tear or two and perhaps even praise the Lord out loud, read The Beach House and you will probably do all three.”

“I loved reading this book about the friendship between these women and how the years and their current lives have slowly defined them. I think you’ll really enjoy reading this one, too.”
Five Star Book Reviews

“John creates a delightfully inviting setting, endearing main characters, intriguing secondary characters and a faith–based story with a message that lingers long after the last page. Fans of women’s contemporary Christian fiction will find The Beach House a satisfying read.”

“A perfect end–of–summer read!”
Writing for Him

“This book was excellent! The characters were well written, the setting was realistic, and the plot interesting. It wasn't hard to find something of myself in each of the four main characters, thus feeling a personal connection with their storyline.”

"I was immediately drawn into the story, and didn't want to stop reading. Sally's expert characterization compels the reader to care about each one from the first word. The story swept me along, involving me in each of the characters' situations as if I had been included in that circle of friends staying at the beach house. Sally's books never disappoint, but always satisfy!"
Deborah M. Piccurelli, author of In the Midst of Deceit
