Review of THE SOMETIMES SISTERS by Carolyn Brown

Available now at your favorite local bookseller

Dana, Tawny and Harper return to the lake where they spent a month of summer each year as they were growing up. They are there because the death of their beloved Grannie Annie has drawn them there. Each young woman returns home reluctantly and with a lot of secrets that they don’t really want to share. The secrets are a center of the story, but the author does such a good job of writing about the characters and the current action that it does not take away from the real story, which is one of reconciliation and love between siblings. I loved each character and how well they were portrayed, but my absolutely favorite character was Zed. Having spent most of his life with Grannie Annie, he still speaks her wisdom and in many ways represents her. She is the main character who has died but is still present, in the restaurant and cabins and store that she started, in the quotes that the sisters keep being reminded of, and especially in the quotes that they sisters keep being reminded of. This is a heart-warming story of reconciliation and the conquest of bitterness.
