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 cafe, 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.

Professional reviews

"Narrator Brittany Pressley's sensitive and graceful performance lays bare the emotions and strengths of these sometimes sisters and an honorable old man. Uncle Zed's mission to fulfill Granny Annie's dying wish by reuniting her estranged granddaughters, Dana, Harper, and Tawny, doesn't happen easily. The story is set in a small lakeside resort in Texas, and the sisters all have Southern drawls, which Pressley presents impeccably with changes in tone and mannerisms that allow listeners to like and envision them. Dana's sassy preteen daughter, Brooke, heals the hearts of her fractured family, while Zed's, gravelly tones and calm persona teach the importance of coming together. Long-held secrets are revealed, and love is hard-won in this contemporary love story. S.H. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine"
