The Sandpiper is about the three Cameron women. Kate the perfect older sister. Jamie the sister with the problems. Their widowed mother Ellie. It’s about Nina Judd, their guardian angel, the novel’s heartbeat. Kate had the chance to know their father Lt. Dr. James Cameron. But 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’s 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. That love is all there is Is all we know of love. -Emily Dickinson
This is a splendid story that keeps the reader captivated from the very first chapter. The novel follows the lives of the 3 Cameron women, their “aunt” Nina, following the death of Lt. James Cameron.
The writer brings the reader into their lives, and you can feel and envision what these women feeling and dealing with in their day to day are living.
The book has, so many commonplace issues it deals with, that the reader can grasp, how and what these women are feeling.
I was a bit let down with the ending, but all in all I really did enjoy this book. It is well written, easy to read, and I think that any reader would have a difficult time putting this book down.
