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 come their way, the women struggle to maintain the tenuous bonds of sisterhood and find a reason to go on. Narrator Ruth Ann Phimister will keep listeners captivated as each of the sisters experiences the healing power of love and acceptance.

Couldn't finish this...the characters weren't interesting or engaging, a lot of self centered introspection going on. There wasn't much of a plot or anything to grab. I found it dry and very predictable.

Maddie was a strong yet very much human character.
Her performance was okay but her voice was just not that appealing to me. Sorry Ruth Ann.
A nice easy listen with a great message for everyone.
I would thoroughly recommend this book - I usually reserve my audiobooks for when I'm on the treadmill but I couldn't wait to see how the sisters would all come together so sat up one night to finish listening. Tracie weaves a rather true to life story not only showing how often things that happen to us in life affect the choices we make but it showed what often happens amonst siblings as they grow up and leave their family home. I loved what the quilt illustrated. Thank you Tracie and thank you Ruth - I really enjoyed your reading of this story.
