Goodreads: One family’s story of pain, secrets, and love.
The Sandpiper is about three Cameron women. Kate the perfect older sister. Jamie the screw-up. Their widowed mother Ellie. It’s about Nina Judd, their guardian angel, the novel’s heartbeat.
Kate had the chance to know their father Dr. James. Jamie was born too late. Sisters by birth. Sisters in loyalty sanctified by a blood oath. Two bright, pretty women full of promise. Then something happens the summer Jamie turns 18 that ruins everything.
And maybe Kate is not so perfect after all. Jamie not so hopeless. Embraced by The Sandpiper, Nina’s white-shingled cottage above the endless blue of Lake Michigan, the sisters struggle toward forgiveness, toward healing.
Ope’s Opinion: The first thing that attracted me to this book was the name – I love watching sandpipers at the beach. The second thing that attracted me to the book was the cover. Then I read the synopsis. I thought this is a book I will really enjoy reading.
It turned out to be okay. I was actually a little disappointed. It just never grabbed me. I kept reading and it was alright.
Maybe I just wasn’t in the right frame of mind to read this book. I think I needed something lighter and more up beat.
