Elba M (elbamsosa) | 4 comments I read this book at least 30 years ago. Some of the books takes place at a beach house. But my best recollection is when the parents of the mother decided to send her to a catholic convent. Her mother made bottoms out of gold coins. At some point in the book, she prays to the Virgin Mary, telling her that she was also a jewish girl. And put the coins in the statue.

And could it be Beach Music? Reviews mention Shyla's parents being Holocaust survivors; Ruth, the mother hides coins in Virgin Mary statue and she also prayed to her "as Jewish girl to Jewish girl".

Sounds like you're not quite sure. Here's the Google Books preview of Beach Music by Pat Conroy - Ayshe's suggestion - https://books.google.com/books?id=hU0... There are different cover images.
