The Shell Collector, by Nancy Naigle, is such a good book. This story helps reinforce that God finds a way and has a reason for everything, even if we don’t see it. Amanda’s husband bought the children a dog she didn’t want, and he turned out to be a great source of comfort after her husband’s death. Amanda befriends an elderly lady who doesn’t have long to live, who gives her a chance to fulfill her dream. And for Paul, his struggle with losing his best friend helps him with his new business. God’s hand is in each of these people’s lives.
This story is full of emotions with loss of spouse and friend and starting over and fulfilling dreams. The characters are so strong and likeable. I enjoyed this story and found it hard to put down. I totally enjoyed reading this story.
I received a complimentary copy of this book through the book launch. This is my honest review.
About the Book
Publishing Date: May 11, 2021
Two years after her husband’s death, Amanda Whittier has two
children to raise alone, an abandoned dream of starting a business,
and a fixer-upper cottage by the sea. She has no room in her life for
anything else and little interest in moving on after losing the only
man she ever loved.
Paul Grant is a relative newcomer to the area, and his work with former military dogs needing
rehabilitation has transformed a neglected box store into a thriving center of community. Though he
loved once before, he’s convinced he’s not suited for romance and is determined to find meaning—
alone—through his work and role on the island.
Widowed Maeve Lindsay was born and raised on Whelk’s Island. Spirited, kind, and a little
mischievous, she pours her life into the town. But she carries a secret that shapes her every move.
Together, these three souls find encouragement in the most mysterious places and discover a love
that’s bigger than their pain, healing their wounded hearts in ways none of them could have hoped
for or expected.
