Publisher's Summary

Elizabeth Gallagher has been balancing on the ragged edge for a while now. Then, a rough case on the boards of her 911-operator 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.

Engrossing, Heartwarming, Real

I only wish this book were longer! The struggles are real, as well as the resolutions. Excellent.

Loved this story!

This is a prequel to The Prayer Box but is easily a stand alone.
Elizabeth Gallagher has had a rough year and her Mom and Aunt, who lives in the Outer Banks Of North Carolina, are locked in a battle over selling land. Elizabeth is a 911 dispatcher who is second guessing her response to a call and her kids are growing up faster than she’d like! Her marriage is not all that she hoped. All of this culminates into a trip to visit her Aunt just as a hurricane develops. Family wins as closeness and understanding grow and life finds a balance.

The book is in first person, which is not always my favorite but the narrator, Sybil Johnson, does an amazing job making it work. The emotion and intonation is spot on. The characters are well done and I can feel Elizabeth’s angst as she navigates this part of her life.

The book is a quick one just a few hours, but well worth the listen!

I have to say I’ve been in the same place as the main character and it hit home. Loved it.

Great short story!

This was a good short story to begin the Carolina Series books. I could imagine the town, the feelings the characters. I am looking forward to the rest of the series. The reader was good. Easy to listen to.

Good story, wonderful narrator

The book was okay. I wanted more resolution at the end, but this is a more low-key, realistic novel so it didn’t really take away from the experience. I particularly enjoyed listening to the narrator. She has such a wonderful, soothing and sweet voice.

Lot of drama & whinning

I could not go past chapter 3- The main character was in so much agony over her personal situation. I listened to the sample and did not detect the story to be this way. It was making me so uncomfortable I had to stop the book. JH

Good Story

Narration was flat on this 1 book. The later. Bloods in the series where narrated with more emotion. I connected to the story.

Meh. Maybe you’ll like it better

This was a perfectly fine book. I am not sure why I wasn’t drawn into it. Nothing was bad about the book. I got it because I loved Wingate’s book, Before we Were Yours. I was hoping I had an author I could follow, but this didn’t capture me.

Sea Glass Sisters

I love the message of this book. Life is so much more important than material items.
