    1. The Sea Keepers Daughters is the third book in the Carolina series and it's the first one I have read. The book can be read as a stand-alone, at least, I think so since I found this one to be perfectly fine to read even though I haven't read the previous two books.Here is the blurb from the book: 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 destinyI found [...]


    2. Lovely - Sweet - Enlightening and Inspiring. This installment in Lisa Wingate's "Carolina Heirlooms Series" is all of these things. A soft-spoken, kindly novel lifting the veil of family secrets in relation to race, heritage, unrequited love, grief, and the effects of echelon expectations. "Perhaps denial is the mind's way of protecting the heart from a sucker punch it can't handle. Or maybe it's simpler than that. Maybe denial in the face of overwhelming evidence is a mere byproduct of stubborn [...]


    3. I was privileged to read an early copy. Once again, Wingate knocks it out of the park. It's a real page turner and a book where you'll get totally involved with the characters. And you'll catch up with some of the characters from The Prayer Box and The Story Keeper. Definitely, I recommend you put on your To Be Read list.It's releasing September 1, and is available for pre-order now, I see.


    4. 3.5 stars. I have to say that I struggled a bit to get into this one, I didn't really feel a connection to Whitney. I did persevere with reading it and for the most part, liked it. With the exception of Denise, I also liked the supporting characters. I was more drawn in to the story of Alice than that of Whitney, but felt a little let down that some of the story was left unanswered, especially since this is the last of the trilogy. Overall, a pretty good read.**Thank you to the publisher and Net [...]


    5. 3.5 starsNot sure to round up or down on the "official" star ratingThis was my first experience reading a Lisa Wingate book. The cover on this one is beautiful and drew my interest initially. I didn't realize I was jumping in at book 3 of a trilogy. I think it read fine as a stand alone with no background. A few times I was confused by the characters but not sure if reading the others would've helped or not. Overall, I had a good reading experience with this one. It's a dual time line story with [...]


    6. Such am exquisite book! The two threads went well together though the letters didn't capture my attention nearly as much as the modern day one and I confess, I skimmed at times. It all intertwined together though so read carefully :)


    7. Set in idyllic coastal North Carolina’s Outer Banks, master storyteller, Lisa Wingatebrings her captivating, beautiful Carolina Series, full circle with #3, THE SEA KEEPER’S DAUGHTERS– a multi-generational journey, from past to present – of history, family, and renewal.As the book opensWhitney is struggling with her restaurant, fighting local politics, codes, and all sorts of things to stall her progress. She needs money. She also needs to protect the others she's involved. She receives [...]


    8. There are moments and events of our lives that shape the person we become. For Whitney, it was the suicide of her father and the loss of her mother to cancer that have left her fearful of close relationships. When she is called back to North Carolina to care for her stepfather, with whom she has butted heads far too many times, she also must confront her memories. Trying to save the restaurants she owns with her cousin in Michigan, she scours the old hotel for pieces of value to turn into some q [...]


    9. Maybe only 2.5. This book follows a familiar formula -- strong-minded independent woman thrown into crisis must travel to a scenic, historic locale to unravel a mystery and confront her own demons. She is tempted by two men and needs to choose from the "easy" solution or the right thing to do. Seriously predictable and, to quote a friend, "annoying."What elevates this though, are the intriguing details about the New Deal Federal Writers Project. The back-story is what kept me turning page despit [...]


    10. Lisa Wingate has become one of my favorite authors that I've recently discovered. I didn't read this series in order, or even read the books one after the other, but it's definitely one of my favorites.In The Sea Keeper's Daughters, Whitney travels to Roanoke Island to do what needs to be done with a hotel that has been left to her. After receiving a call about her stepfather, who occupies the converted third floor of the hotel, it's clear that he can't continue by himself. Then there's a matter [...]


    11. A STELLAR READ that I stayed up to finish in one night.Whitney is an independent Michigan restaurant owner, whose father committed suicide when Whitney was a child, and whose mother died from cancer only a few years previously. When Whitney receives word that her elderly, estranged, step-father who lives in the Outer Banks of North Carolina has a medical emergency, she travels to North Carolina to check on him, and to evaluate the vintage "Excelsior" (waterfront property) that she will inherit w [...]


    12. I gave this lovely book 5 stars because it is well written. It combines the N.C. Outer Banks with the Blue Ridge Mountains in totally different eras. The mountains tell the folklore of Roosevelt's era, the Outer Banks- family history There are artifacts and old letters involved and secrets kept and eventually revealed. It's a deeply woven family story about saving what is important and learning to forgive. It's about making new friends, falling in love and accomplishing your dreams in ways you n [...]


    13. A shroud of mystery surrounds the mystic tri-racial Melungeons, thought by many to have descended from the historic "lost colony" of coastal North Carolina; making their elusive residence high in the Blue Ridge mountains and avoiding civilization, being the objects of cruel misconceptions and brutal treatment. Who would have the courage to trace their story, when it appears that their story might be safer kept untold?Whitney Monroe is desperate, her once promising career in the restaurant busine [...]


    14. 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 estrange [...]


    15. The third installment of Wingate’s Carolina Heirlooms series is a stellar multi-layered tale. The author’s ability to turn a beautifully resonant phrase is apparent throughout this amazing story. Once you pick up this gorgeous novel, you won’t put it down until its heartwarming conclusion.Whitney Monroe has been chasing her dreams of owning and running restaurants for years. She has hit some snags on her latest venture, and now she receives word that her stepfather Clyde, who forbade Whitn [...]


    16. As the story drew to a close, I had to keep reminding myself it wasn't ACTUAL history. Although, maybe it was--at least a little. During a presentation on her book tour, I heard Lisa talk about the research she did into the Federal Writer's Project and how she included some writings almost verbatim. THIS is how I want my history. Told through a beautiful story that twines the past with the present and reminds us that we come from a rich and varied past. Whitney wasn't my absolute favorite heroin [...]


    17. Often there's no rhyme or reason as to why I choose a book. The Sea Keepers Daughter just sounded like an interesting title. No clue why. However, sometimes as I'm reading along in a book, I realize something sounds familiar; a character or two I may have seen in another story, or a topic is brought up that I've read in another book. This was the case here. The Melungeon people were in a different book, and Sandy's Seashell Shop, Benoit Estate, and The Story Keeper surprisingly was mentioned. At [...]


    18. Not as captivating--or as visceral--as Before We Were Yours, but that's understandable, given the difference in subject matter. Still, I found this to be an engaging tale, somewhat predictable, but well-written, and with enough above-average twists and characters to make it worth my time.I supposed the word I'm looking for is "pleasant." And after a lot of thrillers, mysteries, tales of serial killers, and some heavy-hitting historical fiction, a pleasant tale is most welcome.


    19. Lisa Wingate is a powerful storyteller. In every book, she engulfs the reader and transports them through time and space to the very heart of her story. The Sea Keeper’s Daughters is no exception. It’s a compelling book that is not only a page turner in a great storyline but one that will bring tears to the reader eyes. Already a huge fan of Lisa Wingate, I can say that I am never disappointed in her books and always thrilled when a new one is released. I had the incredible privilege of read [...]


    20. The story started out a little slow for me, as I was trying to figure out how everything and everyone connected, but it quickly picked up pace and had me completely engrossed. Whitney owns two restaurants that are struggling and when she inherits an old hotel in North Carolina, she leaves, to not only try and figure out a way to save what she has, but to try and decide what to do with what she has been given. I could understand her temptation to just sell it all off to get the money to save her [...]


    21. Absolutely one of the best books I've had the pleasure of reading!In the midst of a major crisis at home in Michigan, restaurant entrepreneur Whitney Monroe receives an unexpected call about her estranged stepfather needing help in North Carolina. Returning to the coast where she and her mom spent the summers seems to be a possible solution to her current troubles. What she finds when she returns to the old hotel once owned by her grandmother is a mystery in itself, as she unearths family treasu [...]


    22. Like her previous Carolina Heirlooms novels (The Prayer Box, The Story Keeper), The Sea Keeper’s Daughters combines two stories into one, bound together in such a way that only the deeply talented Lisa Wingate can manage. Though this novel is a stand-alone, it includes characters from previous novels–a technique in other books I sometimes find distracting; here, however, it adds texture and dimension.The more I got into Whitney’s story, the more I warmed to her. Wingate does an especially [...]


    23. Full disclosure: I received this novel as a First Reads giveaway, but that in no way affected the review.Mystery, history, intrigue, and even romance are all intertwined in this novel, that has Whitney returning to her roots near Roanoke Island in order to save her restaurant in Michigan from a hostile takeover.The Excelsior, now a rundown, historic hotel, was where Whitney spent her summers working for her grandmother. With her mother's death, she has inherited it, but has always avoided claim [...]


    24. After the stock market crash, President Roosevelt started a government program of recovery called the WPA-one group was the Writers, who would travel the country side and wrote what they saw and about the people they saw and interviewed.Denise Monroe's grandmother had this job. She and her husband traveled among the Sea people near the North Carolina's Blue ridge Mountains. She sent all her writings to her sister who lived on the outer banks of South Carolina.When Denise started to look for thes [...]


    25. I received this book for free through Netgalley. Wow! This book is part of a series, and I had not yet read any of the authors other books; however, this book was perfect as a stand alone, and I did not have any issues following along. Wingate writes highly readable prose. Some scenes (like the squirrel attack, which was funny!) were a little lengthy/wordy, but all the other pluses of the book more than made up for that for me. The characters were well developed and likeable, the story had a gre [...]


    26. The conclusion to Lisa Wingate's Carolina Heirlooms series was one of my favorites of the series. I loved the intertwining of the contemporary story with the letters from Whitney's Great Aunt that she discovered. Lisa Wingate obviously did a great deal of research on the Federal Writer's Project and the Melungeons of North Carolina. I had never heard of this group of peoples and found it very interesting. This is a story of secrets of the past that affect the present. Whitney has come to assist [...]


    27. Let's say this: I am a book-devourer. If it takes me almost 4 weeks to read a not-crazy-long book, there's probably a problem with the book. (Or me. I'll acknowledge that)The problem with this book is there was way too much going on. The main character's restaurant! Her stepfather! Her stepfathers kids! Her hotel! Her grandmother! Her long-lost great aunt! Her love interests!And I didn't care enough.



    28. I got this book thinking it was a different one because of the cover and name of the two are almost identical. But I really enjoyed it. A little chick-lit but I enjoyed those parts too. And I learned something new. As a journalist, I am ashamed I didn't know about the Federal Writers' Project before!


    29. Is is possible for a reader to dwell in a story, to become so caught up in it’s telling that it’s as if you are living the life of the main character? This is how I feel when I read Lisa Wingate’s work. Her latest novel, The Sea Keeper’s Daughters is a thought provoking story about overcoming an unthinkable past through the powerful and redeeming work of love. You will want to buy it, dwell in it, and then add it to your collection of favorite books. It has certainly earned a spot on my [...]
