About the Book:
Elizabeth Gallagher has been balancing on the ragged edge for a while now. Then a rough case on the boards of her 911 operator’s 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.
I don't know how much longer this is going to be free, but my advice to you is to check the link ASAP, see if it still is, and if it is, buy it. It it is not free it is $2.99 on Amazon and I'd say it is worth it.
The writing is beautiful, I'd love to be friends with the characters and Lisa Wingate does a great job of depicting both hurricane season and the seasons of life. As noted in the title link, the book is a prelude to another, and the first chapters of The Prayer Box are generously provided as well. However, I didn't finish The Sea Glass Sister unsatisfied, as if I was missing the whole story. While classified as Christian fiction, it is on the milder end of the spectrum and prayers don't make all the bad things go away.
