It is an enjoyable story about the very special bond between sisters and mother/daughter relationships that kept me up all night reading. The responsibilities and personal concerns of a 911 operator are an extra bonus. Review by gudenuf

Elizabeth Gallagher is struggling professionally and personally. As a 911 operator, she took a call for a missing child and made a mistake, so she feels responsible that the child is still missing. Her husband is detached, and her family is fighting over selling off a portion of family property. She decides to take a road trip with her mother to visit her aunt to try and come to a conclusion over the property.

This could have been such a great book. The characters are interesting, and the message is encouraging. However, the plot was too quick and disjointed for me to really enjoy it. When I saw it was a novella, I thought, well it should be a quick read. It was a very quick read, but I wish it had been a full length novel to really see more character development.

It is the prelude to Wingate's novel, The Prayer Box, which I haven't read yet. I can only hope that the same characters are included in that book so that I can learn more of their stories.

There isn't anything wrong with this little book, I just wanted more. If you are looking for a quick read, without a lot of depth, this would be a good book for you.

    Great start to a new series

    I've enjoyed all of Lisa Wingate books and this was no exception. Can't wait for the next book in this series. The characters were interesting as well as the plot. I'm a more mature reader and felt very comfortable with the premise of what this series will bring.

    Sea Glass Sisters is another exciting story by Lisa Wingate!

    A family disagreement causes a mother and her daughter to drive from Michigan to North Carolina's Outer Banks to see the sister, Aunt Sandy who owns Sandy's Sea Shell Shop, "An ocean of possibilities".
    They arrive about the same time as a storm coming up the coast. The daughter and mother help Sandy prepare for the hurricane.

    Really great lessons:

    "Well, Iola Anne Poole is a woman of the Banks, through and through." Aunt Sandy says it like that explains everything. "This place gets in your blood."

    "You don't always realize the golden moments in life when they’re happening. But when they’re gone, you miss them."

    "No way out but through the storm." she whispers again. "We’re not alone."

    "It's some life, here on these Outer Banks. It really is."

    This is another outstanding, interesting and exciting book by Lisa Wingate. I highly recommend this book!

    As usual, Wingate weaves a wholly satisfying story about characters we come to love. Sandy and Sharon are in disagreement about the family land in Michigan at the same time that Sharon's daughter, Elizabeth is in crisis about her job as a 911 operator. When Sharon and Elizabeth decide to visit Sandy in the Outer Banks to settle the issue, a hurricane is on the way. Sandy's Seashell Shop is threatened and the reader learns some life lessons as the three pull together to weather the storms of life. I can't wait to read more about these people in Wingate's, The Prayer Box. I have it on preorder and it should be coming soon. You'll love this novella!
