Claire Cavenaugh has fallen in love for the first time in her life. As her wedding day approaches, she prepares to face her harsh, judgmental older sister. It is the first time they have been together in more than two decades. Over the course of a hot Pacific Northwest summer, these two women who believe they have nothing in common will try to become what they never were: a family.
REVIEW: This book was one that I read with some trepidation. As the oldest of 4 girls, I am very familiar with the sometimes rocky relationship between sisters. So when I finally sat down and read it, I was glad that it wasn’t the typical sister relationship.
Meghann and Claire love each other, they just don’t know how to relate to each other, so when they are forced to be together for a summer, they discover that even though they have nothing in common, they will be there for each other no matter what. Even to the point of putting the other one first in their life.
I really liked this book. It had all the dynamics. The secondary characters were amazing also, and really created this atmosphere of support for the main characters.
For anyone that has siblings this book is one that they should read. It doesn’t matter if it is a brother/brother, sister/sister, brother/sister relationship. This is one that will make you grateful for them in your life.
I give this book a 4.5 out of 5.
