Rich, privileged, on the verge of being accepted into Charleston’s elite social clubs, Jackson and Mary Lynn Scoville have worked hard to provide the kind of life for their three daughters that they never had. But does having everything really make you happy? Jackson is distant and domineering, Mary Lynn has become the kind of wife that has to bite her tongue, and the daughters have issues with insecurity, drugs and sneaking out. That is until two miracles happen.

Sunrise on the Battery is a moderate paced Cinderella story in reverse. Instead of the poor miserly princess getting the prince, the perfect family finds God. The descriptions of Charleston are beautiful, the language is kept natural and flowing. While the plot was somewhat predictable, Beth Webb Hart makes her characters change wildly from materialistic selfish people to outgoing radical evangelists. I was a little uncomfortable with this wild transformation, but it did make for a good story.

The overall spiritual message of the book was very inspiring. I could see a lot of my habits and downfalls in the characters and the life path that they choose spotlighted where my walk with Jesus could be better.

Overall, the book is a quick and easy read with a story that is a wholesome diversion.
