This book broke my heart so if you decide to read it have some tissues handy! Penny gets some devastating news and decides she needs her sister so she travels back home to Ireland from Australia to seek her help. Laura has a lot on her plate already when her sister turns up after twenty years and Penny has her four-year-old daughter in tow. The way Caroline Finnerty wrote the voice of four-year-old Willow was so authentic, she has a real knack for writing children.

I really felt for Laura as she is left reeling from news and or secrets revealed by her sister, husband, and daughter. The strength these women find within themselves and with each other was so heartwarming and satisfying to read and loved the theme of the bonds of family, especially sisterhood.

I devoured this book in a single sitting and loved it so much but the ending left me feeling pretty annoyed. I don’t think after everything she’d gone through that Laura should have forgiven her husband. I certainly wouldn’t have. But other than that I thought this one was near perfect. All. The. Stars.

Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for the Advance Readers Copy.
