Publisher's Summary

Celeste English and Ronnie Frazier are sisters, but they couldn't be more different. Celeste is a doctor's wife, living a perfect and elegant fa├žade. But secretly, her marriage is falling apart and her need to control people around her threatens to destroy them all. Ronnie is an actress, living in New York. But she has no money, she has no home, and her life is held together by "chewing gum, paper clips, and spit." When their father dies, the sisters inherit a house in Prosper, North Carolina. Their mother, Della, would rather they forget about going there and dredging up the past. Neither of them suspect that their trip to Prosper will uncover decades-old secrets, family betrayals, and tangled relationships - or that it will make these two strangers realize that they are, and always will be, sisters.

My Favorite Book So Far, by Far!

This book made me laugh, cry and relate. I felt it was well written and very engaging. I heard they were making a movie. I will be first in line to buy tickets. You will not be disappointed. And, the narrator was excellent. Happy Listening!

this is a great listen

I liked this book a lot but some parts of the book just dragged on. The story line was great and I could feel each characters personalities and struggles. I like the way the characters are their own people, reading this I felt like she was telling a story about something I had endured and each character reminded me of myself in a way. The book kind of dragged on in some spots, and the changes from the present to the past in some parts of the story were hard to decipher but I follwed the story with ease. This book inspired me to find out the history of my family and realize and finally understand that my family isn't the only one with deep dark secrets. This book has also opened my eyes to the meaning of TRUE LOVE and see that people will do anything to get what they want. I would love to read another book from these authors. I also think that the narrator did an amazing job and kept me wanting to find out more.
