The Sea Keeper’s Daughters (A Carolina Heirlooms Novel) is about the history of family heirlooms, family letters, inheritance, forgiveness, and some romance. I enjoyed how Wingate wove the past and present. 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.” At no additional cost to you, if you choose to purchase from Amazon through my affiliate link in this post, I may receive a small commission.
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.
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.
