"The Sound of Glass" - Karen White

Hello fellow bibliophiles! I think I have just finished what is sure to be one of the top beach reads for this summer! Thanks to NetGalley, I was able to get an ARC of The Sound of Glass by Karen White. The book will be published this month and is sure to be a big hit. A story of love, a story a loss, a story of forgiveness and redemption.

Merritt, recently widowed, learns that she has inherited a family home in Beaufort, SC from her husband's family. Family that she never heard of while married to Cal for seven years. Needing a change and having the desire to face her fears, Merritt quits her job, sells her house, and packs up everything to move to Beaufort. There Merritt is visited by her step-mother Loralee, four years older than she, and her 10 year old half-brother Owen with whom she has had no relationship with since her now deceased father married her years ago. Merritt is faced by many fears, fears that she soon comes to learn the women in her husband's family also faced and kept hidden. Fears that come from being in an abusive relationship. Loralee helps Merritt to look past all her fears and insecurities to move on in her life and start fresh. While Loralee may have her own motives, she tries to show Merritt that their is more to life than staying hidden in the shadows.

The book is very well wrote. Mystery to keep the reader yearning to discover the truth, advice on how to face your worst demons, a little romance, and full of southern quips. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and recommend it as a great book for people who need something to read this summer! Great vacation book! Feel free to share your favorite summer reads with me!

Happy reading fools :)
