Thirty years later, Lindsay is still trying to reconnect with her sister. The owner of a bookstore in the sleepy California seaside town of Blue Moon Bay, she was lucky enough to have been adopted by a loving couple. Unbeknownst to her, Kerrie Ann has suffered a very different life. Bounced from one foster home to the next, she ran away as a teenager before becoming a drug-addicted single mother. Now, newly sober, Kerrie Ann is fighting to regain custody of the little girl who was taken from her.
Neither sister's expectations are met when they're finally reunited. But as the two sisters engage in the fiercest battles of their lives, they are at last drawn together despite their differences, restoring belief in the unshakable bond of family.

this was my first full-length on audible. i had tried a couple of others, but did not get sufficiently gripped by the story. this was a great deal of listening pleasure. we love to watch the development of the characters and their challenges. at the end, things were a little too tidy to give this a 5 star review, though the narrator gets five stars. rich personalities, well-drawn, beautiful story line. at the end, i still could not identify with lindsay's refusal to take millions for her property, and bella's foster parents still struck me as a better bet in the long run, but it was still a great story.
