Surrendering in order to be freed from what entangles us is a lovely, exquisite peace all its own.
Four sisters that are all so different but share a family tragedy that they never speak of but is so embedded in their thoughts and decisions. Their young brother died in a terrible accident that has left their family trying to survive a loss that they don’t understand. Years later the accident has left them each with “baggage” that they must unload as each sister comes into a new season. Failed marriages, alcoholism, and new beginnings, how has the past affected each of them and how can they be freed from the past.
Each sister is so different; I think readers will gravitate toward some more than others. It is speaks well of how hurt can stay with you until you surrender to it. The sisters were supportive of each other but also oblivious to the hurt that some carried more than others. The unresolved issue of the hurt of their brother’s death also affected their marriages and then becomes a land mine when a trigger goes off.
Each sister tells her story, her struggle and the day of the terrible accident. It is a story about family. Sticking together and realizing the gift of each other you have.
A Special Thank You to Kensington and Netgalley for the ARC and the opportunity to post an honest review.
