The House on the Beach by Juan García Ponce Summary

Like waves ebbing and flowing, love surges and subsides among four friends who share a vacation at the house on the beach. As they navigate the seas of love and friendship, jealousy and unfaithfulness, Elena, Marta, Eduardo, and Rafael are swept up in the opposing currents that flow between security and personal freedom, marriage and sexual liberation, family and work, provincial and city life, and traditional and unconventional gender roles. This deceptively simple novel, published in Mexico in 1966 as La casa en la playa and here translated into English for the first time, is an important work by one of Mexico's, and indeed Latin America's, major writers of the twentieth century. Juan García Ponce helped Mexican arts and letters break out of the ossified styles and themes of the post-Revolutionary "Mexican School" with works that explore the conflict between individual desire and the demands of family and work. Written at a turning point in his career, The House on the Beach foreshadows his embrace of the erotic encounter as a means of undermining rigid, socially constructed personal identity. It supports feminist views and probes deeply into the contradictions, backwardness, and progress of modern Mexican society.

Walks on the Beach by Sandy Gingras Summary

Inside this inspiring little book, author and artist Sandy Gingras offers ways to find peace, hope, and healing at the beach. Each "walk" is a mini-essay about self-discovery, particularly a woman's self-discovery. Sandy muses about learning patience, leaving it all behind, taking risks and chances, recovering after storms, enduring and gaining strength, and loving and losing and loving again. Gingras finds inspiration in beachy moments and shows us that lessons are everywhere on her beach walks--in a split shell, in a dribble castle, in an upside-down horseshoe crab, in a green jetty, and in the freedom of wearing nothing but a bathing suit. Gingras's watercolors invite you to come along on her "walks." Even if you can't actually walk on the beach each day, Walks on the Beach gives you the sense that you have a little sand between your toes, a little beach in your heart, and a little beach philosophy in your everyday life.

One broken heart, one drink too many, one steamy night in the sand... No one warns you about the dangers of drinking with a broken heart. At least no one warned me.

Sometimes it's the rash decisions, like hooking up in the sand, that lead you to the best places—the kinds of places where it's possible to let yourself fall in love again. *New Adult Romance*
