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?

    " Loved this book...kept me intrigued throughout and wanting to know what would happen next. Felt like it was actually telling the story of something a real family went through...not always warm and fuzzy but decisions made at the time for reasons that seemed right at the time. Very gripping. "

    " Emotional, deeply touching, a story about family, deep, never ending love, passion, forgiveness. "

    " Sandcastles was a very good book to read. It was a refreshing change for me to going from steamy romances to a more subtle romance. I love all of Lynn Kurland's books and now I'm starting to read Luanne Rice's and have loved every one so far. There are two couples in here with their own problems, but they are still all connected together so it doesn't confuse you or get you irritated by going off topic. One couple John and Honor learn to forgive and forget after John's been in jail for 6 years after committing a crime he didn't do. They still love each other deeply, but they wedged apart by the missing truth, dangerous feelings and the past. "

    " This book was recommended to me - so I felt 'duty-bound' to finish it - it's slow moving for at least the 1st half - then picks up a bit - it's rather predictable. I did enjoy the book location of Connecticut - familiar towns, etc... I rated it as 'OK' and it is. "
