Cassie and Julie spent many blissful childhood summers together at their Nana’s beach house in the Hamptons. But now their Nana has died and the sisters haven’t said a civil word to each other in fifteen years! Their grandmother has other plans though, and in her will, she’s left the holiday home to both girls … as long as they spend a month there together.
Initially, they’re both horrified at such a ridiculous prospect. What on earth was she thinking!!?? But then Cassie realises this might be the escape she needs from the rumour-mill that has become her private life, and Julie decides that this is her chance to break-out from under the oppressive bullying ways of her husband. Maybe a month together at a place that holds so many fond memories isn’t such a bad idea after all?
Can the sisters find their way back to each other? They’re both flawed and they’ve both made plenty of mistakes, but can they be honest enough with each other, and themselves to find the common ground that they need to reclaim the close relationship that they once had?
Told from the differing perspectives of both sisters, the story unravels to show us their different upbringings and their very differing opinions of the father that they share. The plot twists and turns, showing us that no matter where we begin, life is a journey and we all have to follow our own path. It’s up to us to decide who we take along with us and who we leave by the wayside.
This is a well-written and engaging book that will have readers immediately engrossed in the lives, loves and struggles of its characters. It’s a great 4-star read and one I’m sure will be a summer favourite for many!
