I truly loved The Tidewater Sisters novella. If you haven't read Lisa's Fantastic book "The Prayer Book" go back and read it first. This novella can work as a stand alone novel, but it will mean so much more by reading "The Prayer Book" first. It will give you the history about the characters.Besides that, it was my favorite read in 2017. The author has a great way of drawing you into the story right from the start. Your heart just bleeds for her characters, they feel so real. She tells such sad tales, but she doesn't leave you there. Her characters are very strong and never give up, Tandi Jo is a fine example of a strong woman. She has an on going battle with her older sister Gina. Who is the bad guy in the story that you love to hate. It looks like finally everything is coming together for Tandi until her sister enters the picture again. I have read several of Lisa's books and I never have been disappointed. I highly recommend this novella.

Tandi Jo Reese has finally found a safe place to build her life and hope blooms strong as her wedding nears. However, when Tandi receives notice of a lawsuit against her, she is convinced she must confront her sister, Gina, who, most likely, is the cause of this issue. However, when she arrives in Tidewater, she finds the past she needs to confront is far more vast than she knew. The Tidewater Sisters by Lisa Wingate is the postlude novella to The Prayer Box. In a sense, the novella could stand-alone as Wingate gives the essential background information, but I don't think it would be particularily engaging to me if I hadn't read The Prayer Box. It was my previous enjoyment of these characters that helped me enjoy The Tidewater Sisters. As is common for novellas, there's limited character development, but Wingate does an admirable job in other areas. The plot never dragged. The relationship between Tandi and Gina rings with authenticity. She remarkably portayed the reality of dysfunctional families without a miraculous, neat, wrap-everything-up-in-a-fake-way ending. However, she managed to give Tandi a hopeful and healthy future. Bottom Line: If you enjoyed The Prayer Box by Lisa Wingate, you'll enjoy revisiting Tandi Jo Reese in The Tidewater Sisters.

113. The Tidewater Sisters by Lisa Wingate; (2*) "Kind of a Drag." All I have to say. What a letdown after some of her previous reads.

It seems that a lot of people have been talking about how much they liked/loved "The Prayer Box." I have not read it, so if there is a connection between this book and that one, then it explains why I'm not really getting into this book. I feel like I am wandering around aimlessly in this novel. Maybe I need to read that other book first and re-read this one??
