The Tidewater Sisters

Title: The Tidewater Sisters: Postlude to The Prayer Box

Author: Lisa Wingate
Publisher: Tyndale
June 2014
Genre: Contemporary novella

Tandi Reese and her sister, Gina, have always been bound by complicated ties. Amid the rubble of a difficult childhood lie memories of huddling beneath beds and behind sofas while parental wars raged. Sisterhood was safety . . . once. But now? Faced with legal papers for a fraud she didn't commit, Tandi suspects that her sister has done something unthinkable. With Tandi's wedding just around the corner, a trip to the North Carolina Tidewater for a reckoning with Gina was not part of the plan. But unraveling lies from truth will require confronting strained sibling bonds and uncovering a dark family secret that could free Tandi from her past or stain her future forever. 

THE TIDEWATER SISTERS is the perfect epilogue to The Prayer Box. I enjoyed  finding out what happened after the ending of The Prayer Box, and worried for awhile that Tandi's and Paul's wedding might be derailed. 

Tandi's relationship with her sister is really sad. I can relate in some ways. I found myself hoping they could resolve the matter in a good way. I want to find out more about what happens with some of these characters, such as Luke, Laura, her pascal of foster children...  

This is a great novella, quick, easy to read, and gripping. I thoroughly enjoyed it. 5 stars. 127 pages. $2.99 Kindle.
