Bette’s Bookshelf The Prayer Box & Sea Glass Sisters

Today you are getting a two for one review…

I read these back to back. Unfortunately I read the Prayer Box first, but enjoyed both nonetheless. This book was a Finalist in the Christian Book Awards, The Christy Awards, and the Maggie Awards. Although it is Christian Fiction, it is not the least bit ‘preachy’ and I found it to be quite inspiring. It is the story of a mother with two children running from a bad relationship and a messy past. When the elderly owner of the estate where Tandi Jo rents the gatekeeper’s cottage dies, Tandi is charged with cleaning out the house in exchange for rent. When she discovers a letter, she is drawn into the old woman’s life and it in turn changes hers. You will love the Hatteras Island ambiance of this story and find yourself longing for a weekend at the shore as you discover the charming Sea Glass Shop.

One tip… read the prequel first, it leads you into the story beautifully.

Wingate’s newest release is already on my TBR list.

The best compliment you can pay an author is to close one book and order the next one. If I put the second book on my TBR list, you can rest assured I loved the first one.

About the author

Bette Lee Crosby

USA Today Bestselling and Award-winning novelist Bette Lee Crosby's books are "Well-crafted storytelling populated by memorable characters caught up in equally memorable circumstances." - Midwest Book Review The Seattle Post Intelligencer says Crosby's writing is, "A quirky mix of Southern flair, serious thoughts about important things in life and madcap adventures." Samantha from Reader's Favorite raves, "Crosby writes the type of book you can't stop thinking about long after you put it down." "Storytelling is in my blood," Crosby laughingly admits, "My mom was not a writer, but she was a captivating storyteller, so I find myself using bits and pieces of her voice in most everything I write." It is the wit and wisdom of that Southern Mama Crosby brings to her works of fiction; the result is a delightful blend of humor, mystery and romance along with a cast of quirky charters who will steal your heart away. Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript. She has since gone on to win nineteen awards for her work; these include: TheRoyal Palm Literary Award, the FPA President's Book Award Gold Medal, Reader's Favorite Award Gold Medal, and the Reviewer's Choice Award.
