The Beach House Book Summary/Review:
The inheritance left by her father draws Emily into reactivating his business including fund-raising through corporate donations tied to federal expenditures. Her agreement to administer the spending from the inherited offshore bank accounts pulls her into the underworld of subversive activity related to the Middle East conflict and the prisoners held at the Guantnamo Bay prison in Cuba. Emilys determination to adhere to her fathers principles of limiting spending to humanitarian efforts leads to charges of subversive activity as she uncovers details around her fathers sudden death. Emilys conflict with her mother over the beach property forces her into liaisons and investments to protect The Beach House, her sanctuary for her and her child, Susan.
