Auntie Ellie’s Beach House
Leyla loves everything about Auntie Ellie’s beach house – the boat, the climbing tree, the old rainwater tank, the driftwood on the beach and the family times there together. When Auntie Ellie has plans to sell, Leyla thinks she’ll be lost without it, but then the moon shows her the way…Gentle and lyrical, Auntie Ellie’s Beach House is a story about people, place and belonging.
