The Sea Keeper’s Daughters is about history of family heirlooms, family letters, inheritance, forgiveness and some romance. I enjoyed how Wingate wove the past and present.
I read Talk of the Town by Lisa Wingate and enjoyed it so decided to try another by her. The Sea Keeper’s Daughters was enjoyable also. It is filled with mystery, history and adventure. It was slow paced for me up to approximately the last 100 pages or so. The book is 405 pages, longer than most of the books I read. The letters from the past written out lost me at times and I lost some interest. I did finish though and glad I did. The ending was great.
This is one of the few fiction books that I’ve underlined sentences that seemed to jump out at me. Such as, “If you could know—if you could always know—when the lasts in life are coming, you’d handle them differently. You’d savor. You’d stop. You’d let nothing else invade the moment.”
Lisa’s writing seems to be well researched. She mentioned the Melungeons, which I found very interesting to learn more about.
I would recommend this book to gals who especially love history.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
