Off the Book Shelf: Between Sisters

I have seen Kristin Hannah's books on the shelves at stores for years.  But I just hadn't picked one up.  Then a few months back, Nicole gave me the audio of Winter Garden.  I was immediately hooked on her writing.

Hannah's book Between Sisters was wonderful.  We listened to it during our road trip last month.  And everyone of us really enjoyed (okay...maybe not Quinn, but he's a teenage boy, so he doesn't count...hehehe).  The story is about two sisters who had a very dysfunctional childhood and have grown up into dysfunctional adults.  With their relationship strained and a crazy mother, these two sisters must decide to reconcile or walk away.  I loved every second of this story.

Years ago, Meghann Dontess made a terrible choice that cost her everything, including the love of her sister, Claire. Now, Meghann is a highly successful attorney who doesn’t believe in intimacy–until she meets the one man who can change her mind. Claire Cavenaugh has fallen in love for the first time in her life. As her wedding day approaches, she prepares to face her strong-willed older sister. Reunited after more than two decades apart, these two women who believe they have nothing in common will try to become what they never were: a family. Tender, funny, bittersweet, and moving, Between Sisters skillfully explores the profound joys and sorrows shared by sisters, the mistakes made in the name of love, and the promise of redemption
