About the Book:
In her grand home in Charleston, Willa Bellemore raised two girls during the tumultuous 1970s. One was her daughter, Lady. The other was Lady’s best friend, Nell—adopted after the sudden, heartbreaking death of her mother, the Bellemores’ beloved maid. Willa showered Nell with love and support, all the while ignoring the disdainful whispers of her neighbors. After all, they were family. Nell and Lady were sisters at heart—sisters who vowed to never let anything come between them.
Then, on the night of Lady’s sixteenth birthday, something went terribly wrong, sparking painful secrets and bitter resentments that went unspoken for three decades.
Now Willa is dying, and Lady and Nell—each with a teenager of her own—are brought together after all these years. It’s Willa’s last wish. The time has come to confront what happened on that fateful night. But it may take a tragic twist of fate to reconcile the past and come to terms with the true meaning of family.
Nell and Lady grew up together but something happens to Nell that separated them. Nell and her mother lived with Lady and her mother, Willa. Lady has a daughter and Nell has a son. They both play a big role in the book.
A very inspiring story, a little mystery of what happened to Nell that left her not wanting a relationship with basically her family since Willa adopted her after her mother died. I really loved the book. It is about forgiveness, overcoming past and learning to love one another again. I definitely recommend this book. Hard to decide which was my favorite character. I really enjoyed Regan and Booker, the teen age children. They were good friends but did know their parents knew each other from the past. They really had a lot to deal with.
I received an complementary copy of the book from NetGalley through the author. I was not required to write an positive review.
