A bittersweet inheritance reunites three estranged sisters in a novel of family, trust, and forgiveness from New York Times bestselling author Carolyn Brown.

When they were growing up, Dana, Harper, and Tawny thought of themselves as “sometimes sisters.” They connected only during the summer month they’d all spend at their grandmother’s rustic lakeside resort in north Texas. But secrets started building, and ten years have passed since they’ve all been together-in fact, they’ve rarely spoken, and it broke their grandmother’s heart.

Now she’s gone, leaving Annie’s Place to her granddaughters-twelve cabins, a small house, a café, a convenience store, and a lot of family memories. It’s where Dana, Harper, and Tawny once shared so many good times. They’ve returned, sharing only hidden regrets, a guarded mistrust, and haunting guilt. But now, in this healing summer place, the secrets that once drove them apart could bring them back together-especially when they discover that their grandmother may have been hiding something, too…

To overcome the past and find future happiness, these “sometimes sisters” have one more chance to realize they are always family.

Thoughts
I’ve loved every book by this author that I’ve read and this is added to the list. I loved all the characters, especially Zed. He was such a good man and loving “uncle” to the girls.

I loved the lakeside resort  that had cabins, a small house, a café, a convenience store. I live at a lake when I was young and down the road there was a place that reminds me of this book.

The sisters haven’t always gotten along but they are all loyal to family and the more time the girls spend at Annie’s Place, the more they start to realize how much they love and need each other, and the healing begins.

This is a book that I couldn’t wait to get back to, and did as often as I could. It was a bit sad but also full of happy times and made me laugh here and there.

I really loved this book and so glad I listened to it. The narrator did a great job with the voices and each one was distinct.

I highly recommend this book.
