The Sound of Glass by Karen White

The Sound of Glass



It has been two years since the death of Merritt Heyward’s husband, Cal, when she receives unexpected news—Cal’s family home in Beaufort, South Carolina, bequeathed by Cal’s reclusive grandmother, now belongs to Merritt.

Charting the course of an uncertain life—and feeling guilt from her husband’s tragic death—Merritt travels from her home in Maine to Beaufort, where the secrets of Cal’s unspoken-of past reside among the pluff mud and jasmine of the ancestral Heyward home on the Bluff. This unknown legacy, now Merritt’s, will change and define her as she navigates her new life—a new life complicated by the arrival of her too young stepmother and ten-year-old half-brother.

Soon, in this house of strangers, Merritt is forced into unraveling the Heyward family past as she faces her own fears and finds the healing she needs in the salt air of the Low Country.

Review: The Heyward men were known for being abusive and you will find out each mans story. I was a bit confused after I read the prologue and then started chapter one. It took a few chapters for me to start to connect and understand things. I love the journey that Merritt takes and all that she experiences along the way – facing her fears, realizing that it’s ok to be who she is, learning to love the people in her life, experiencing healing and being able to trust again. Throughout the book they begin to unravel the truth behind the airline crash. I had a hard time putting this book down!! This is a great novel for those who have experienced abuse as well as those who love them. 

Bookishly yours,
