A very good read. I love a good romance novel that is deeper than just a romance. I love how Barbara can create such intricate stories that are so believable.

A wonderfully moving story about how our mistaken impressions can alienate us from the ones who truly love us most. 3 sisters dealing with the hurt & estranged feelings over their 'aloof' mother are brought together in their mother's final days & learn that not only do feelings run deep but life's reasonings sometimes run deeper.

Keep the tissue box handy because the connection you'll feel with these gals will bring your own childhood feelings to the surface.

I've read several books lately and this is definitely one of my very favorites. The ending is a little "pat" and comes out sweet, but by the end of the book I liked the characters so well that I WANTED them to have a happy ending!

This is a wonderfully written story of a mother's love and need to reconnect with her grown daughters, who feel they were unloved and neglected by a cold and indifferent mother as they grew up. The three daughters not only grow close to each other but also find out why their mother was seemingly so distant. As they find out about their mother, they also discover things about themselves they were reluctant to admit. A really hard-to-put-down book ..... and you feel so good at the end.

Barbara Delinsky's books are so heartwarming. This is a tale about sisters who have nothing in common but meet and find out their mother is their bond.

When seventy-year-old Ginny invites her three daughters to join her for two weeks at Star's End, her new estate on the Maine coast, each accepts reluctantly, since Ginny was always more dutiful than loving. All three have found ways to rebel against their emotionally impoverished childhoods. Caroline, forty, is a successful lawyer driven to put a demanding career ahead of her personal life. Annette, thirty-seven, lavishes more attention on her husband and five children than they need or want. And twice-married, twice-divorced Leah, thirty-four, now fills her life with empty socializing. Together at Stary's End, as they await Ginny's arrival, they gradually discover the scandalous secret behind her stony facade - and begin to understand the deepest desires of their own hearts.

From the back: "From the New York Times bestselling author of Suddenly and Together Alone, comes this touching novel of the many facets and the eduring power of love, the tenacious strength of family, and the choices we make that determine who we are."

Estranged sisters Caroline, Annette, and Leah St. Clair have spent their lives trying to escape the legacy of their wealthy, aloof, social-climbing mother, Virginia -- each losing a certain part of herself in the process. Now, on the eve of her seventieth birthday, Virginia has asked them all to help her get settled into her magnificent new estate on the rocky coast of Maine, a request each sister reluctantly agrees to, thinking it may be her mother's last.

But it is Virginia who has something to give to the daughters she neglected in childhood. For amid the glories of a New England summer, three sisters will finally learn the answers to the questions that have troubled them for years . . . and new truths that will stay with them forever.
It's a great love story, but much more than that. Expect to shed a tear, and a few smiles. A great book!
