Book Recommendation of the Month: The Sometimes Sisters by 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. 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. 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. Charlotte
