Meghann Dontess is a woman haunted by heartbreak. Twenty-seven years ago she was forced to make a terrible choice, one that cost her everything, including the love of her sister, Claire. Now, Meghann is a hotshot divorce attorney who doesn't believe in intimacy - until she meets the one man who can change her mind.

Claire Cavenaugh has fallen in love for the first time in her life. As her wedding day approaches, she prepares to face her harsh, judgmental older sister. It is the first time they have been together in more than two decades. Over the course of a hot Pacific Northwest summer, these two women who believe they have nothing in common will try to become what they never were: a family.

Tender, funny, bittersweet, and wonderfully moving, Between Sisters celebrates the joys and heartaches that can be shared only by sisters, the mistakes made in the name of love, and the healing power of new beginnings - all beautifully told by acclaimed author Kristin Hannah.

    "I wish I had a sister!"

    This is beautiful story. Although the plot was fairly predictable the characters were real and there was nothing boring about this book. Read with feeling and thoroughly enjoyable.

    "Keep a tissue handy"

    Book was a good listen, but it had me in tears a number of times. Hannah did a good job of evoking the complicated emotions that arise in troubled families. I really enjoyed it.

    Great narrator and story line.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Loved the entire book.

    "Great Book!"

    I loved this book as much as I have loved all of Kristin Hannah's books I've read so far, but the narration left something to be desired.

    "Between Sisters"

    Once again Kristin Hannah has written another wonderful book, but if only the bad language wasn't in there. I wasn't expecting this book to take the turn that it did, but I am glad the sisters came back together.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Between Sisters to be better than the print version?

    I did not get the print version.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It had a little laughter, a few tears, a little romance and a story about how the past experiences influences the present life decisions.


    Have you listened to any of Laural Merlington’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    If you could take any character from Between Sisters out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Claire and Megan.


    Any additional comments?

    Good listening

    "Predictable"
    What would have made Between Sisters better?

    A little less man bashing and not so repetitive.


    What was most disappointing about Kristin Hannah’s story?

    So so predictable. Almost from the start you could see how it was going to end.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Laural Merlington’s performances?

    No


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Between Sisters?

    Very repetitive, could have cut out half the book and still know where it was going.

    "Love the story vs bad reader"
    Would you listen to Between Sisters again? Why?

    No the reader was awful. Had problem remembering the voice assigned to each character


    What did you like best about this story?

    The ending


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Laural Merlington?

    Anybody else would have been better. Hannah should of used some else.


    If you could rename Between Sisters, what would you call it?

    Perfect title

    "Okay"

    Thought the book was okay, had good parts, but over all predictable and boring in many areas
