About The Book:
Sisters Laura and Penny were once close, bonded together after the early death of their mother. Laura always had her younger sister’s back until one day everything changed and Penny disappeared. Twenty years later Laura finds herself alone and at a crossroads in her life; questioning her marriage and her future. Meanwhile, Penny has spent her whole life running away from her problems until one day she is forced to stop and face the shocking truth. When Penny turns up on Laura’s doorstep late one stormy night, holding the hand of a shivering little girl, Laura is immediately suspicious of her sister’s motives. Just what does Penny want and who is this little girl? Penny carries a devastating secret that will test their bond as sisters and is forced to make an impossible choice. Can the sisters find it within their hearts to forgive and unite before it’s too late?
This book broke my heart so if you decide to read it have some tissues handy! Penny gets some devastating news and decides she needs her sister so she travels back home to Ireland from Australia to seek her help. Laura has a lot on her plate already when her sister turns up after twenty years and Penny has her four-year-old daughter in tow. The way Caroline Finnerty wrote the voice of four-year-old Willow was so authentic, she has a real knack for writing children.
I really felt for Laura as she is left reeling from news and or secrets revealed by her sister, husband, and daughter. The strength these women find within themselves and with each other was so heartwarming and satisfying to read and loved the theme of the bonds of family, especially sisterhood.
I devoured this book in a single sitting and loved it so much but the ending left me feeling pretty annoyed. I don't think after everything she'd gone through that Laura should have forgiven her husband. I certainly wouldn't have. But other than that I thought this one was near perfect. All. The. Stars.
