Two very different sisters . . . an unexpected homecoming . . . one unforgettable summer

Karen and Val are family–yet they’re anything but close. Karen has carried the burden of responsibility for her aging mother ever since her sister left town years ago to pursue a career in theater. But Val had other reasons for moving away–as well as a secret to keep–and coming home has never been an option . . . until their mother suffers a stroke.

Reunited in their hometown, Karen and Val must grapple with past mistakes as they care for their ailing mother. When two handsome men enter the picture, the summer takes on a surprising new dimension. As their lives intersect, can each of them learn how to forgive, let go, and move on? And strengthened by the healing power of faith, might they also find the courage to love?

With her trademark compelling characters and heartwarming hope, award-winning author Irene Hannon pens an inspiring true-to-life tale of complex relationships, the search for forgiveness, and the life-changing process of finding love.

My Thoughts:

It took me awhile to get into the book, not that it wasn’t good or anything. The first half just didn’t keep my interest for some reason or another. I’ve read a couple of Irene Hannon’s mystery novels and I like them a lot better than this one.

Karen and Val are sisters who have never really gotten along with each other. But when circumstances pull them together will they finally be able to get over their obstacles and discover a bond that runs deep within them? Will they both be able to let go of past hurts and find love after many years of being alone?
