The Sandpiper


The Sandpiper

One family’s story of pain, secrets, and love.

The Sandpiper is about the 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.

I am loving this book. It’s hard to put down. Everyone knows someone who suffers from addiction and this story helps you truly understand what they feel and how difficult it is to deal with the emotions that rule them.
Having grown up with an alcoholic father who died at the age of 48 I could truly relate to the family.
This would be a wonderful book for a book club discussion .
