Summary

Summary

After the tragic death of their parents, life for the Higgins sisters has taken a drastic turn. Still grieving when called home to Yorktide from Boston to be the legal guardian of her younger siblings, 25-year-old Poppy knows next to nothing about taking care of 16-year-old Daisy and 13-year-old Violet. Daisy resents her and Violet, always a loner, retreats even further.

Then disrupting everything, a whole cast of characters descend into their lives, including the mysterious Evie Jones, handsome Jon Gascoyne with an eye for Poppy, Ian LaFond, Poppy's on-again off-again boyfriend, Julie Mayer, Poppy's old school friend and happy cheesemaker, and Allie Swift, Poppy's mentor in Boston.

Who is Evie, really, and will the shocking truth of her past put Daisy in harm's way? Can Jon break through Poppy's grief and win her heart? Will Allie find true love with a man who has lost virtually everything? And will the three Higgins sisters finally accept the new shape of their lives and embrace it--and each other--with hope?

Library Journal Review

When pretty Poppy Higgins's beloved mother passed away, she left her hometown of Yorkside, ME, with her two younger sisters, Daisy and Violet, staying behind to grow up with their father. When dad dies of a sudden heart attack, Poppy returns to Yorkside as the guardian of the 13- and 16-year-old girls. While Poppy struggles with being an authority figure to siblings she hasn't seen in years, feisty Daisy resents her sister's attempt to take over the parenting position. Violet, who has spent little time with her oldest sister, tries to figure out how to support Poppy in her role as provider while dealing with the death of both parents. The sisters' lives change when they meet runaway Evie, who suffered her own devastating losses and helps to bring perspective to the struggling Higgins clan. VERDICT Chamberlin's (The Family Beach House) latest is a great summer read but with substance. It will find a wide audience in its exploration of sisterhood, family, and loss.-Brooke Bolton, North Manchester P.L., IN © Copyright 2015.
