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.

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.
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.
Loved the entire book.
This is the first time I have listened to Laural.
This book takes you from laughing to crying and back to laughing.
I didn't want this story to end.
The narrator did a fantastic job bringing this book to life. I've read a couple books by this author and I must say, I really enjoyed this particular novel. There are a couple sentimental and tearful scenes, of course. I thought that the complicated relationship between the sisters was very realistic mainly due to the fact that no relationship is ever perfect. My favorite character throughout the book was Meghan. She is such a strong independent female character. Her view towards men after her divorce was quite harsh, especially after I learned that it was basically her fault the relationship ended in the first place.
What made this novel unique is that it mostly revolved around the relationship of these two sisters, who were born from the same mother, by different fathers, and both ending up living different lives and facing different struggles.
I did not get the print version.
It had a little laughter, a few tears, a little romance and a story about how the past experiences influences the present life decisions.
Claire and Megan.
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.
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.
A little less man bashing and not so repetitive.
So so predictable. Almost from the start you could see how it was going to end.
Very repetitive, could have cut out half the book and still know where it was going.
