A woman's book about friends who are sisters and sisters who are friends. Thogh bound by blood, they are separated by tragedy. Their collective journeys are about personal and familial redemption. A good read.
I loved this book!!! It is not really a romance but it does have elements of romance in it. It is a warm intimate book about sisters and love and rediscovering who we really are. I laughed and cried. I felt joy and sorrow. This is a book full of tenderness and hardship.
I liked this book. I liked the characters and the story line and I found the situations that the characters were in to be totally believable. For me it was well written and because of that it was a fast read. I'm sure i will look for other books written by her to read.
This the best Mary Alice Monroe book I've read! And that is saying alot, since I love all of her books. This one struck perhaps a more personal chord with me since it was about adoption, and eventually finding the birth child and reconcilation with sisters and one's self. A great read with good characters.
