Like a Technicolor tornado bursting into Luz's picture-perfect life, Jessie returns to her Texas hometown with a shattering request. She wants to tell Lila the truth. As Luz and her husband struggle with what Jessie's return may mean to rebellious Lila, their seemingly solid marriage falters. Old secrets are exposed. Then, just as Jessie comes to terms with the past, life's bittersweet irony plays its hand. She meets Dustin Matlock, a young father who has survived a devastating loss. And Jessie begins to see the hopeful possibilities that lie buried in the most wrenching tragedies.
Though she aches to reach out to those she loves, Jessie stands at the crossroads. She is leaving behind the only life she knows and blindly leaping into the unknown. Now the choice she makes will affect the life of her daughter and challenge the meaning of sisterhood. As Jessie and Luz examine the true meaning of love, loyalty and family, they are drawn into an emotional tug-of-war filled with moments of unexpected humor, surprising sweetness and unbearable sadness. But as the pain, regrets and mistakes of the past slowly rise to the surface, a new picture emerges - a picture filled with hope, promise and the redeeming power of the human heart.

I have liked other Susan Wiggs books and search for anything that she writes. If this was my first by her I would not buy another. I hope readers who do not like this will give her another chance. The narrator was not outstanding but not bad.
I found the character Jessie to be selfish, unlikeable and having extremely poor judgement. I cannot understand why the other characters loved her so much and cannot understand why no matter what she did to them they just shrugged and let it go. I am very glad that I have never met anyone like her. The characters was not at all believable.
The narrator was good. I had a little trouble distinguishing which character was speaking, the voices were very similar, but that may have been inattention on my part because of the story itself.
Absolutely not. I couldn't wait for this one to end.
Pronunciation of the word Maori and Maori words were terrible, I would have though that would have been something the narrator would have checked on, how to pronounce words properly.
What a wonderful story, I wanted to keep listening yet did not want it to end. I will listen to this book again soon.
