Review The Sometimes Sisters by Carolyn Brown

A bittersweet inheritance reunites three estranged sisters in a novel of family, trust, and forgiveness from New York Times bestselling author 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. But 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. But 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.

Touching story about three sisters and a granddaughter who overcome misunderstandings stemming from childhood. The oldest missed having a relationship with her father who abandoned her. The other two lived in a household with a socialite abusive mother, and father (of the oldest sibling) who couldn’t accept his first daughter, and wouldn’t stand up to his socialite wife, thus missing out on relationships with his other two younger daughters. Through the years it was the paternal grandmother and her mate who supplied love, support and guidance to the three girls and granddaughter. But each of the girls held secrets oft their own as they got older,feeling shame and embarrassment which they were too ashamed to share with their grandmother and her mate. It took the death of their grandmother to bring them all together once again and to learn the biggest secret of them all.
This is a heartwarming story about forgiveness, understanding, compassion, and finding love in each of their own lives.

Heartwarming, homespun, quirky, emotional and entertaining adventure for three sisters with a lot of real life regrets and secrets keeping them apart.

Dana, Harper, and Tawny are the “Sometimes Sisters” each with a different yet sad history and only one summer together at their Granny Annie’s lakeside resort (their dad’s mom). When Granny Annie passes it is her dying wish they come together to run the resort and make a go of it as a family. Uncle Zed is on hand to help them become the sisters they are meant to be. (Granny’s best friend) I just adored him so much. This story made me cry, laugh and sigh almost at the same time. Just loved it!
