In The Sea Glass Sisters, Lisa Wingate deals with the issues of reconciliation and hope. We follow the struggles and the victories of the characters.
This book is a prequel to "The Prayer Box". I started this series by reading the 2nd and then 3rd books of this series. That being said, it made this book seem more like a "six-degrees" of separation book as the only link to the other books is Sandy, the seashell shop owner and her sister Sharon with a slight mention of Iola Ann Poole. However this book is also a very heartwarming story. I would suggest reading the series in the order it is written to get the full enjoyment of the saga.
I enjoy Lisa’s writing style, character development, unique story lines and the fact that there is always personal growth, reconciliation and redemption in her novels. Lisa always finds an interesting premise, location or historical reference that leads me to do further research on the topic presented. I also like that her books are written in series which gives me an opportunity to get to know the characters better as the story lines develop and to see how they are progressing or what they are up to once they aren’t the focal point of the current story.
While I don’t always like the personalities of the characters (I’m sure that’s Lisa’s intent) at the onset, I do grow to love them and understand and appreciate their individual challenges and personalities as the story unfolds. I have sometimes felt uncomfortable as I was being taught lessons I needed to learn about how others might be challenged or struggling in their lives and the scenarios are realistic enough that you can certainly apply them to real life situations. At the end of the book, I am always loath to leave them and feel as if they are real people that I’ve grown to know and care about.
I have been inspired by Lisa’s wisdom, challenged to become a better person, laughed, cried and fallen in love with the people and localities she writes about.
I feel I am a better person for having read these books and always appreciate the measure of grace she brings to her writing. Each book leaves a great impression on me and my heart is full for a long time after the last page is turned.
It is important to me that Lisa somehow manages to do all of this without feeling the need to use graphic language or sex scenes as I do not find that these add anything to a story.
Don’t think that her books aren’t entertaining! Lisa adds wit to go along with the wisdom! There is always a little bit of romance, too!
I hope you will take the time to pick up one of Lisa’s books. You won’t be disappointed.
I liked The Sea Glass Sisters because it gave the reader an insight into Sandy's life through Elizabeth Gallagher, her niece. It tells how Sandy, the owner of Sandy's Sea Shell Shop from The Prayer Box, ended up at North Carolina's Outer Banks. Sandys sister Sharon isn't at all happy that Sandy wants to sell the land she inherited since the land has been part of their family for generations and now she and her daughter Elizabeth is traveling to see Sandy to talk some sense into her.
Alas, all we get is a glimpse into Sandy and Sharon's life through Elizabeth's eyes, but as with the rest of the books in this series that I have read was this story beautiful written. It's a sweet and also sad story. It was lovely to meet Iola Anne Poole since the story in The Prayer Box takes place after she had died. I liked the characters and I the ending was good.
In the Novella The Sea Glass Sisters, Elizabeth Gallagher’s world is about to be steamrolled. Her children are growing up and ready to take flight. Her husband is spending more time away. Her uncle Butch is on the warpath, because his sister Sandy wants to sell her property and it sits on the family’s land where they live. Sandy and husband George moved years before to Hatteras Island, N C and run a cute but failing gift store. Then when Elizabeth’s mother shows up ranting about going to see Sandy and talk some sense into her; Elizabeth doesn’t want to be involved, she has other pressing problems; one was caused when a distraught woman called 911, at the dispatch center where Elizabeth works, and was crying saying her little girl was taken. Elizabeth desperately wants to find the missing child and has been searching for her everywhere. Soon, Elizabeth realizes she has to go with her mom to see Sandy and they drive right into the heart of a storm one that is affecting her family and the Island.
I haven’t read the Prayer Box yet, so I’m glad that this was offered on my Kindle. I loved the story and look forward to reading more. 5 stars.
