Best-selling, award-winning author Tracie Peterson infuses her compelling novels with practical faith and courage. In this story of one contemporary family, she deftly weaves together the lives of five very different young women as they face life's tragedies and triumphs. Abandoned by their mother while they were still small children, the Mitchell sisters have always felt the pain of rejection. Their search for love and a sense of worth drives them apart by the time they are adults. But when their mother--now a famous actress--suffers an untimely death, the five reunite for the funeral. There they begin to salvage frayed relationships--held together only by a slender thread. As new trials pass their way, the women struggle to maintain the tenuous bonds of sisterhood and find a reason to go on. Narrator Ruth Ann Phimister holds listeners spellbound as each of the sisters experience the healing power of love and acceptance.
