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.

Lisa Wingate’s THE TIDEWATER SISTERS, a novella as part of the Carolina Series (Postlude to The Prayer Box). If you haven’t read The Sea Glass Sisters and The Prayer Box—you are in for a treat, highly recommend. The Carolina Series in order: • The Sea Glass Sisters (Novella) • The Prayer Box (Book 1) • The Tidewater Sisters (Novella) • The Story Keeper (Book 2, Sept 1, 2014 ) • Coming, July 2015 (Novella) • Coming Sept, Sept 2015 (Book 3) The Tidewater Sisters picks from The Prayer Box, with character, Tandi, where she was running from a dangerous past and childhood, finally found solace within Iola’s house, where the letters in those boxes changed everything. Presently, Tandi is living in the Outer Banks of NC, engaged to be married to Paul, a local school teacher, a single mom for Zoey and JT, and works for the Benoit House Museum, overseeing its renovations and works part time at Sandy’s Seashell Shop. Tandi’s life is going great, until she is served with legal papers—a lawsuit (real estate fraud). However, she owns no real estate. After further investigation, her worst nightmare—her sister, Gina. What has she done now? She drives back to her grandparents’ old farm across the Pamlico Sound in the Carolina Tidewater, NC area—she loved her grandparents, which are now deceased and has some good memories, especially her first love, Luke. But then there was the accident. All sorts of weird things begin happening, and more dark secrets are uncovered, when she returns to the farm. One shock after another, and then she has to do the unthinkable…turn in her sister or make things right? Included in the jammed packed novella, bonus excerpts from the past two books, which I have read, and the and exciting upcoming (9/1/14)The Story Keeper, set in the Blue Ridge Mountains. I typically do not give a novella a 5 Star rating; however, Wingate is a master storyteller, and even her short e-books are so engaging and packed full of emotion, with her heartfelt stories—making you feel you are reading a satisfying full novel. Wingate combines Christian, contemporary, romance, multi-generational, and family drama into one compelling book. Loving this series and looking forward to the upcoming,The Story Keeper,set in the Blue Ridge Mountains. As a native of NC, I love stories set in the coastal, Piedmont, and mountain areas of this region.

This is another Lisa Wingate hit! Tandi Jo was first introduced in The Sea Glass Sisters and The Prayer Box and captured my heart. Tandi returns to the Tidewater in North Carolina, a place that holds difficult memories. I sympathize with her when she gets tangled in a lawsuit and had strong emotions toward her sister Gina as well. Tandi’s relationship with her sister is more than strained, and so much is revealed about their past. A powerful and highly emotional read with a sweet ending. I think of an old sermon my grandfather quoted from time to time—something about not looking back when you’re plowing a field, but instead finding a mark in the distance and focusing on that. Otherwise, the rows won’t come out straight. ~Excerpt from The Tidewater Sisters Source: I received this audiobook at no cost from the publisher. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.

I was not aware of this being a novella with excerpts from two other novels. The entire story is 85 pages. No way to really know the story on it's own.

At Last Answers For Tandi Jo.... The Sea Glass Sisters Novella started the story. Then came The Prayer Box and now the postlude to The Prayer Box with this novella. Tandi Jo finally gets answers to unresolved questions and is able to put the past where it belongs, in the past. This is a great ending to The Prayer Box however maybe it won't be the end of some of the characters. Who is to say they won't tie into future stories the author may write?

This is just a great follow up to The Prayer Box that left me feeling satisfied. You have to read it to find out what that means! Its less than 100 pages so it can be read in no time! I'm looking forward to the next book., The Story Tellers.

Great Book! This novella picks up where The Prayer Box left off and it looks like things are finally going to turn around for Tandi.  The museum in Iola Ann Poole's house is set to open soon, Tandi is engaged to be married  to a wonderful caring man and her kids are happy then she receives the delivery.  The delivery of legal papers threw Tandi for a loop but she ventures back to the home of her past, where her Grandparents lived.  The estate was left to her and her sister Gina but the legal papers asking for money is the first that Tandi knew anything about it. After traveling out to the farm, meeting some people from her past and talking to her sister she is able to have some of the questions answered and is able to put her past to rest.

The Tidewater Sisters by Lisa Wingate Carolina Series  Tandi Jo Reese’s life is finally on track. She is going to marry a wonderful man in two weeks, her children are happy and the Benoit museum will be opening soon. After coming across the prayer boxes Iola Poole left really changed Tandi’s life.  One thing hasn’t changed though, her sister Gina. Tandi receives notice she is being sued for fraud, and it all ends up at Gina’s door, again. When another blast from the past hits Tandi her world begins to tilt slightly. Can Paul’s love and her new understanding of God carry her through this crisis as well? This is a short novella that picks up on Tandi’s life after The Prayer Box. Sometimes you have to face the past head on in order to move ahead to path before you. You can’t keep walking forward while looking behind. The struggles Tandi faces are so real. Loving someone and yet having to be firm isn’t easy with her dysfunctional past trying to hang on. **Received through NetGalley for review

After staying most of last night reading THE TIDEWATER SISTERS, I am eagerly awaiting the September release of Lisa Wingate's THE SECRET KEEPER. This novella follows the lives of Tandi and Gina, the sisters from THE PRAYER BOX. Their relationships and lives are so complex and different than the lives of my sisters and me that I find the reading about them fascinating. Another winner by Lisa. review by Gudenuf
