The Sea Keeper's Daughters Review


 About the Book

Wingate's third Carolina book follows the highly reviewed, The Prayer Box and The Story Keeper as well as related three novellas.

From modern-day Roanoke Island to the sweeping backdrop of North Carolina’s Blue Ridge Mountains and Roosevelt’s WPA folklore writers, past and present intertwine to create an unexpected destiny. . .

Restaurant owner Whitney Monroe is desperate to save her business from a hostile takeover. The inheritance of a decaying Gilded Age hotel on North Carolina’s Outer Banks may provide just the ray of hope she needs. But things at The Excelsior are more complicated than they seem. Whitney’s estranged stepfather is entrenched on the third floor, and the downstairs tenants are determined to save the historic building. Searching through years of stored family heirlooms may be Whitney’s only hope of quick cash, but will the discovery of an old necklace and a depression-era love story change everything. (Goodreads)

My Thoughts

Lisa Wingate is a gifted writer and this book really shows her creativity with characters and settings. I loved this book and it was really hard to put down. The Lost Colony has always fascinated me and the theory within the book was really fun to read. I liked the historical story more so than Whitney's present life happenings but both were good. I love how this book gives imagination to a room full of old things, you never know what you might find. I love the lost letters and the history of the WPA so very interesting! I liked all of the characters and how the story ends, it's not what I had pictured. 
Great book and a talented author. I highly recommend this book and the other two books that somewhat tie into this one, The Prayer Box and the Story Keeper.

Five Stars.
