About the book:

From modern-day Roanoke Island to the sweeping backdrop of North Carolina’s Blue Ridge Mountains and Roosevelt’s folklore writers of the WPA Federal Writers’ Project, past and present intertwine to create an unexpected destiny . . .

Restaurant owner Whitney Monroe is desperate to save her business from a hostile takeover. The inheritance of a decaying Gilded Age hotel on North Carolina’s Outer Banks may provide just the ray of hope she needs.
But things at The Excelsior are more complicated than they seem. Whitney’s estranged stepfather is entrenched on the third floor, and the downstairs tenants are determined to save the historic building. Searching through years of stored family heirlooms may be Whitney’s only hope of quick cash, but will the discovery of an old necklace and a Depression-era love story change everything?

Insider thoughts from Lisa Wingate:

Like many of my novels, The Sea Keeper’s Daughters began with a bit of nearly forgotten history. Until I stumbled across an Eleanor Roosevelt quote, I wasn’t aware of the Depression-era Federal Writers’ Project. In researching the program, I quickly became fascinated with the lives of the WPA’s federal writers themselves. Thousands of people participated in the project, from housewives and secretaries (like Alice in the story) to famous writers of the day. My fascination led to The Sea Keeper’s Daughters.
