Book Review: The Sound Of Glass By Karen White

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I received this book in exchange for 
an honest review from NetGalley.

This is the first book I've read by author Karen White.  I wasn't quite expecting a storyline with a serious underlying issue that spans throughout generations of the novel's women characters.  With that said, you will not want to put this book down!!!!

Merritt Heyward is a widow who has inherited her mother-in-law Edith's home in Beaufort, South Carolina.  Merritt is a northerner from Bangor, Maine but decides this move is just what she need to begin over after being widowed.  

She doesn't expect her young step-mother and step-brother, that she's never known. to show up in South Carolina for her fresh start!  Merritt also must contact the brother in law she's never met so that he can collect any items from his grandmother's home that he would like to keep.

Little do any of them realize the bonds and friendships that will be formed as they uncover family secrets while also learning about history that has has an affect on them all without any of them knowing it.

I gave this book 4 out of 5 stars only because I was confused for awhile with the cast of characters.  This could've been due to me reading this book late at night before bed and then not coming back to the book for a day or so.  That said, I read more than half of this book in one day because I really got into it.

I wish I could say more about this novel without giving you any spoilers, but I cannot.  I want anyone who decides to read this book to go into it without knowing too much of the backstory because it will be more enjoyable for you this way.  Enjoy!
