Review of The Sea Keeper's Daughters by Lisa Wingate

Nutshell: Whitney Monroe is meeting herself around corners. She is fighting to keep her restaurant alive with people breathing down her neck who are ready to snatch her business right out from under her. Life abruptly stops when she receives a message that her step-father has ended up in the hospital and she needs to travel hundreds of miles to take care of him. Her journey takes her so much further as she finds letters written by an unknown family member which tie her heritage to legends from the past. Follow Whitney on an exploratory journey that crosses the sands of time, faith and family.

Pros: I loved, loved, loved this book. What a magnificent story with the perfect splash of faith, finding love and learning about forgiveness. Her style of writing captivates the reader and sucks him/her in to the story from the beginning. I also love how she intertwined characters and storylines from pervious books she has written and tied them in to this book. If you had never read any of her other books, it still made sense. I just loved how she unobtrusively added them in.

Cons: None. One of the best books I have read!

Recommendation: Read this book! Or any of Lisa Wingate's books. She is a master at writing and has been blessed with a very special gift.
