The Sea Glass Sisters

The Sea Glass Sisters by Lisa Wingate

Kindle | Nook

Elizabeth Gallagher has been balancing on the ragged edge for a while now. Then a rough case on the boards of her 911 operator’s job collides with a family conflict at home, and Elizabeth finds herself finally coming apart at the seams. A four-state road trip—trapped in a car with her mother—is the last thing she needs. Their destination may be beautiful Hatteras Island, but the reason for going is anything by pleasant. After one disastrous hurricane, and with a second one working its way up the coast, it’s time to convince Aunt Sandy to abandon her little seaside store on North Carolina’s Outer Banks and return to the family fold in Michigan. But when the storm sweeps through, the three women will discover that sisterhood and the sea can change hearts, lives, and futures . . . often in the most unpredictable of ways.

When Karlina Richter finds out that a new shepherd will be sent to East Amana, she fears she’ll no longer be able to help her father with the sheep. She’ll be relegated back to kitchen work, a job she dislikes. Her fears increase when Anton Becker arrives and shows little interest in the flock–or in divulging why he’s been sent to East. Dare she trust Anton to help her father, or is he keeping secrets that will impact them all?

After learning that her father will be transferred from Cincinnati to a job in Texas, Dovie Cates decides she wants to visit the Amana Colonies, where her mother spent her formative years. She writes to relatives still living in the Colonies and is invited to spend some time there. Soon after her arrival, Dovie meets Berndt, the handsome young man who delivers bread to the kitchen house each day. But when Dovie begins to ask questions about her mother’s past, no one seems willing to tell her anything, so Dovie decides to take matters into her own hands. Will her decision spell disaster for her future with Berndt?

The Sea Glass Sisters

The Sea Glass Sisters by Lisa Wingate is a beautiful novella that precedes her novel, The Prayer Box, releasing in September.

You will immediately be drawn into the story as you read of Elizabeth Gallagher and the traumatic event that has occurred over which she feels much guilt.  When the opportunity arises for Elizabeth to step away from her life for a few days and journey with her mother, Sharon, to the Outer Banks, she simply goes along for the ride.  Little does she know that this journey is just what she and her mother need most.

Once Elizabeth and Sharon reach the Banks, they set out to find what they’ve come for or rather who they’ve come for.  However, Aunt Sandy has other plans and isn’t going anywhere.  Instead, she and the other residents of Fairhope prepare their shops and homes for the approaching hurricane.  As the waters begin to recede, Elizabeth, Sharon, and Sandy must weather an even greater storm together.  This one hitting a little closer to home.

This is a wonderfully written story of the ties that bind us to our family, friends, and our community.  Like pieces of sea glass, we are often tossed in the tumult of life’s ocean.  Our edges may become smooth and our view a bit frosted, but we are still unique and beautiful and face an ocean of possibilities!
