Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Lindsay and Kerrie Ann are sisters who have known hardship from an early age. Without guidance from their neglectful mother, their only aid came from an unlikely source, a retired exotic dancer by the name of Miss Honi Love. When the girls' mother was sent to prison, Miss Honi tried unsuccessfully to save them from being separated and sent into foster care.

Thirty years later, Lindsay is still trying to reconnect with her sister. The owner of a bookstore in the sleepy California seaside town of Blue Moon Bay, she was lucky enough to have been adopted by a loving couple. Unbeknownst to her, Kerrie Ann has suffered a very different life. Bounced from one foster home to the next, she ran away as a teenager before becoming a drug-addicted single mother. Now, newly sober, Kerrie Ann is fighting to regain custody of the little girl who was taken from her.

Neither sister's expectations are met when they're finally reunited. But as the two sisters engage in the fiercest battles of their lives, they are at last drawn together despite their differences, restoring belief in the unshakable bond of family.

Synopsis:

From the New York Times bestselling author of Woman in Red comes an emotionally charged family drama, focusing on two sisters and their turbulent lives.

Synopsis:

Lindsay and Kerrie Ann are sisters who have known hardship from an early age, when their mother was sent to prison and they were separated and sent into foster care. Thirty years later, Lindsay is still trying to reconnect with her little sister.

When they are finally reunited, neither sisters expectations are met. Kerrie Ann feels intimidated by the “classy,” more educated Lindsay, while Lindsay is dismayed by Kerrie Anns streetwise ways. They immediately clash as Lindsay becomes threatened by Kerrie Ann. Simultaneously, Kerrie Ann struggles with the prospect of losing both her home and her boyfriend and is thrown into even further turmoil when her daughters foster parents put in a petition to adopt her. As the two sisters engage in the fiercest battles of their lives, they are drawn together despite their differences.
