CFBA Tour--Trouble the Water
I have yet to read this novel. I did read Nicole's first, The Spirit of Sweetgrass, and really liked it.
About the book:
In the South Carolina Sea Islands lush setting, Nicole Seitz's second novel Trouble the Water is a poignant novel about two middle-aged sisters' journey to self-discovery. One is seeking to recreate her life yet again and learns to truly live from a group of Gullah nannies she meets on the island. The other thinks she's got it all together until her sister's imminent death from cancer causes her to re-examine her own life and seek the healing and rebirth her troubled sister managed to find on St. Anne's Island.
Trouble the Water received a starred review from Library Journal.
Nicole is also an artist. She paints the beautiful pictures on the covers of her novels.
