The Sea Glass Sisters by Lisa Wingate

Elizabeth Gallagher is struggling professionally and personally.  As a 911 operator, she took a call for a missing child and made a mistake, so she feels responsible that the child is still missing.  Her husband is detached, and her family is fighting over selling off a portion of family property.  She decides to take a road trip with her mother to visit her aunt to try and come to a conclusion over the property.

This could have been such a great book.  The characters are interesting, and the message is encouraging.  However, the plot was too quick and disjointed for me to really enjoy it.  When I saw it was a novella, I thought, well it should be a quick read.  It was a very quick read, but I wish it had been a full length novel to really see more character development.

It is the prelude to Wingate’s novel, The Prayer Box, which I haven’t read yet.  I can only hope that the same characters are included in that book so that I can learn more of their stories.

There isn’t anything wrong with this little book, I just wanted more.  If you are looking for a quick read, without a lot of depth, this would be a good book for you.
