Summary

Sometimes, the happiness we’re looking for has been there all along....

Adele and Justine have never been close. Born 20 years apart, Justine was already an adult when Addie was born. The sisters love each other, but they don't really know each other.

When Addie dropped out of university to care for their ailing parents, Justine, a successful lawyer, covered the expenses. It was the best arrangement at the time, but now that their parents are gone, the future has changed dramatically for both women.

Addie had great plans for her life but has been worn down by the pressures of being a caregiver and doesn’t know how to live for herself. And Justine’s success has come at a price. Her marriage is falling apart despite her best efforts.

Neither woman knows how to start life over, but both realize they can and must support each other the way only sisters can. Together, they find the strength to accept their failures and overcome their challenges. Happiness is within reach, if only they have the courage to fight for it.

Set in the stunning coastal town of Half Moon Bay, California, Robyn Carr’s new novel examines the joys of sisterhood and the importance of embracing change.

Not the best.

I’ve been a fan of Robyn Carr books for years, especially the modern against the historical. But for the first time I was a little disappointed in the story. I didn’t feel too attached to any of the main characters and constantly felt like I was waiting for the main storyline to begin. It was a bit predictable what was going to happen, and I feel this novel is just a scene setter for potentially a new series.
In summary, it’s an okay story, predictable, but narrated excellently by Therese Plummer and therefore deserves 4 stars overall.

Disappointing

I awaited the release of the book for some time, as I loved all the earlier books of Robyn Carr. This one however was not worth the credit. The storyline is depressing. The whaling of the main character exhausted me .

Great Book

As a mature listener, this was a great romance. Most romances these days, the couple jump into a sexual romance almost in the first chapter and the characters are very young. This book had mature characters and a real-life storyline, which made for a very enjoyable listen. Robyn Carr is one of my favorite authors and Therese Plummer my favorite narrator. Definitely worth the credit.

The title shows my attention but the story is very poor

Very poor drama and romance story, I was excited on the beginning like the first 4 chapter after that was so boring .

Great story.

Loved the story and the narrator. I didn't want to put down the book and of course I stayed up late at night when I should have been sleeping.
