From the author:
“I am looking for book clubs interested in reading my women’s-fiction novel The Sandpiper that takes place on Lake Michigan in Spring Port – think Grand Haven and Holland – so familiar turf for Grand Rapids readers. One reviewer summarized The Sandpiper as ‘a deep and engrossing novel about family, loss, and addiction. Readers will truly care about these characters…’ I like to think this will be true for your book group too. I love talking with book clubs about this novel that came from my deepest heart, and I’m looking for new clubs interested in inviting me to visit. Please feel free to contact me: slovell19@comcast.net (616)942-9635 Hope to hear from you!”—Susan B. Lovell

Amazon Description:

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. But 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’s 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. That love is all there is Is all we know of love. -Emily Dickinson
