GREAT READING Dec 8, 2006
I was drawn to the book because of the S. Carolina stetting and I got far more out this story than I expected. Pelican Watch had me glued from the beginning. The characters reminded me of people I've known and I'm sure most people can relate to. In very few words the writer was able to bring deep and sensitive aspects of one's personality to life. Her style of writing is unique, fast and very literary. Having visited the restored homes in Savanah made me realize the passion that must have gone into the restoration. The murder kept me in suspense and the circumstances made me wonder if it really happened. I'll look forward to her next book.
Pelican Watch Oct 16, 2006
Rose Senehi is an amazingly descriptive writer. Her knack for giving haunting details practically puts you in the room with the characters. I was enraptured from the prologue. This is a wonderfully complex story that includes elements of mystery, romance, family heritage, and self discovery set in an area rich with Southern culture. I would recommend this book to anyone.

Wonderful Read Nov 12, 2004
This is a wonderful story exemplifying how our lives can positively impact others and how these relationships affect, and also change, us. The author provides us this experience through the characters in Pelican Watch.
Nicky understands she is free from the burdens of responsibility for others and no longer feels guilty to independently live her own life. Tripp realizes he can actually love another person and not be centered on himself and his heritage. Mac comes to see his strengths after running away from them most of his life because of a teenage tragedy. Cheryl becomes confident that her roots are very important to her happiness and existence. Others too find ways to make their lives more meaningful.
The setting is truly the Deep South. Customs, environment and attitudes all overlap to give the reader a genuine feeling of another time and place, but still, not so very long ago. The story provides interesting and accurate information tied together with an excitement and tempo that keeps one eager to read the next chapter. Sometimes one wished there was more detail and slower transitions. However, the author gets the job done making the book an enjoyable read!
Rose Senehi's has learned her subject well, telling a complimentary story about the natives of Pawleys Island, South Carolina. There is a great deal to learn from these people who lived and matured in this part of our country.
