Описание: Luanne Rice is a rarity among novelists today; she's a true storyteller. Her unique ability to weave together the bonds of love and family with the challenges and rewards of everyday life has garnered her eight consecutive top-ten New York Times bestselling paperbacks.

Painter Honor Sullivan has made a life for herself and her three daughters–Regis, Agnes, and Cecilia–at Star of the Sea Academy on the magical Connecticut shore. Here she teaches art at the convent school’s beautiful seaside campus, over which Honor’s sister-in-law, mother superior Bernadette Ignatius, keeps a benevolent and watchful eye. No one could have foreseen the day rebellious Regis would come home with the stunning news that she was getting married. Nor could anyone have guessed how that sudden announcement would soon change all their lives forever.Eleven years ago, Honor thought she had the perfect home, the perfect love, the perfect life. Then her husband, brilliant photographer and sculptor John Sullivan, broke her heart–and tore their little family apart. Now, hearing of Regis’s impending marriage, John has ended his self-imposed exile and returned to the family he’s always loved more than anything on earth. What he finds is one daughter still hurting over his abandonment, another who barely remembers him, and a third who may be in more trouble than anyone knows. And then there is Honor herself–and a passion that may have been interrupted but that has never waned.Some things, like sandcastles, don’t survive the changing tides. But love, family, and friendship–just as fragile–have a way of standing against anything. It will take nothing short of a miracle to heal the rift between father and daughter, husband and wife, the past and the present–but a miracle is exactly what is in the works at Star of the Sea Academy. The only question is: Do you believe?

I read Luanne Rice's book on my trip to Mexico over Thanksgiving with my family. I always bring one of her books (so many!!) with me on my trips since she is my favorite author in the whole wide world. Sandcastles was one that of the few I had not read and quickly devoured it. The pace of the book was like a page turner and one where you instantly felt connected to Honor's family. Her love for her husband and her daughters. Full of mystery, love stories and a bit of suspense, I am always surprised by how well Luanne Rice can write in teenagers that ring so true. The outcome is a twist and you will be happy with the ending.. The perfect read for anywhere really. But a beach read is what comes to mind with this beautiful alluring cover. 5 stars! Superb.

A heartwarming tale! Can’t wait to read the next book!!!

I felt the book "Sandcastles" was just in "the middle of the road" falling more to the down side. You can see by my vote of 3 stars on this review. To me it had no intense drama or plot. It just seemed too repetitous and predictable.

I found this book enthraling. Best I have read in a long time. Every character was alive.

The fact that I am Irish Catholic might have influenced me.

I had read the black hall hubbards point series and enjoyed it, this book just added to the stories I found there.

Love and family are the most important things in life and this story makes you realize it more and more.

Fantastic as always
Even though I am an avid reader, I am always hesitant to review books because, like art, I feel literature is a matter of personal taste but I had to express my disappointment in this book.

Typically, I devour 2 to 3 books per week so I think the fact it took me at least 2 weeks just to get through the first 166 pages of Sandcastles says a lot. Without a doubt, this was the most boring book I think I have ever read...or attempted to read. It was a struggle to get through more than 5 or 6 pages in one sitting. I repeatedly fell asleep or found my mind wandering, thinking of other more *fun* activities I could be doing ... like cleaning the bathroom. I just could not develop any affection for the characters or interest in the story, at all. (Perhaps if I was of Irish Catholic decent I would have felt differently?)

It is very, very rare--almost unheard of-- for me not finish a book, even if I don't particularly love it. Being an optimist, I am always hopeful a book that starts off slow will get better and I'll end up getting something out of it so, 99.9% of the time, I stick with a book to the end. However, with Sandcastles, I realized that instead of looking forward to free time when I could indulge in my favorite past time, reading, I was actually DREADING it. I finally decided to abandon this book midway (page 166) so I could move on to another that I will, no doubt, enjoy a heck of a lot more. If they still made phone books, I think reading one would be more entertaining to me than Sandcastles was.
