Goodreads: A poignant novel about going home again—and how the most complex relationships can yield the most rewarding surprises.
Ten years ago, Nicole Hunter left her troubled home behind her, unable to cope with the demands of a life with her disabled sister, Jenny. Though her search for happiness—both in career and in love—has fallen short of her dreams, Nicole pretends that all is well. Then a shattering event turns her world upside down, and suddenly, she is back in her hometown, caring for her pregnant sister and trying to heal her embattled relationship with her mother.
Reunited with her family and forced to confront the guilt that haunts her, Nicole finally has the chance to be the sister she always wished she’d been. And when she is faced with the most difficult choice of her life, Nicole rediscovers the beauty of sisterhood—and receives a special gift that will change her life forever.
Ope’s Opinion: This was an easy choice to read because I really enjoy sister stories and I really like Amy Hatvany’s way of writing. This is a very heartfelt story of a child without a diagnosis – just a disability – which makes it even more relatable. You can imagine yourself in either sisters position.
This was a wonderful book to read, but the subject was not easy. All the difficulties and situations in the family were hard to deal with. Amy Hatvany’s writing made me feel it all.
I enjoy a book that challenges me and my thinking of how things are or should be.
This is not my favorite Amy Hatvany book and I still really liked it, so that tells you what a good author she is.
