Momma Says 3 out 5 stars⭐⭐⭐
A Song for the Sea is a beautifully written tale. The story is written in both first person and third person POV. The first person chapters are from the perspective of our heroine, Catherine, while everything else is in third person. I can't believe I'm saying this, but that didn't take away from the story at all for me. In most cases, the switch in POV like that would be a distraction, but Carrigan's talent does it wonderfully. The story is a Contempory Romance with a touch of the supernatural. There are some adult situations and a bit of steam, so I would recommend adult audiences on this one. Now, for the cover! Isn't it gorgeous?
Cape Split is the perfect place to practice witchcraft. At least Catherine Craig thinks so. A nurse and wife, Catherine fights against the isolation of a life in Cape Split with magical egg rites, wishing stones, and an odd cast of characters: a prickly gossip whose marriage is falling apart; a lobster fisherman who'd rather drown in bourbon than accept friendship; and Catherine's own husband, whose fear of fatherhood has made him more and more distant with each passing day. If only there was a magic potion for that.
As Cape Split threatens to take everything she holds most dear, Catherine discovers which friends are meant to stay, which dreams are meant to come true – and whether her love is the kind worth fighting for. A SONG FOR THE SEA is a story of friendship, hope, loss, and love, and shows that with a little magic, even the darkest storms can be weathered.
