Book: Between Sisters
Author: Kristin Hannah
This is my 2nd book for the year
This is the story of sisters Meghann and Claire. Meghann - who is quite a bit older than Claire - practically raised her little sister in their younger years. Their mother - an actress that was gone more than she was home - left Meghann to figure out how to feed Claire and care for her. Gone usually just a few days, their monther once disappeared for a much longer period and food ran out. Meghann panicked and called Claire's father, Sam, to come and help. Feeling more like a burden than a daughter, Meghann leaves Claire with Sam and disappears from their life.
Year's later, Claire calls Meghann because she is getting married. Their strained relationship has a chance to be rekindled with Claire agrees to let Meghann be involved in the wedding plans. Meghann begins to open up becoming a sister again to Claire, an aunt to Claire's daugher, and even finds love herself. When tragedy hits, Meghann is there to take charge and save the family she has now come to realize she cannot live without.
This was a good book. I enjoy most of Kristin Hannah's book, so this was no exception. She is a talented writer. The story kept my interest - I liked most of the characters. Only a few eye rolling moments near the end of the book as Hannah tries to neatly wrap up the story. It does have a great epilogue, which I always appreciate in a book. Love to see into the future of the character's lives, so that was a redeeming quality for the story.
Check this one out. I listened to it to help pass some time while we settled into our house, and I looked forwarded to listening to it each day.
