Since the age of 12, McKenzie Arnold has spent every summer at Albany Beach, Delaware, with her best friends, Aurora, Janine, and Lilly. The seaside house teems with 30 years of memories - some wonderful, others painful - and secrets never divulged beyond its walls. This summer may be the last they spend together, as Janine contemplates selling her family cottage.
For now, all four enjoy morning beach walks and lazy evenings on the porch, celebrating Lilly's longed-for pregnancy and offering support during McKenzie's greatest crisis. It's a time for laughter and recriminations, a time to forge a new understanding of a long-ago night when Aurora sealed their bond with one devastating act. And as the days gradually shorten, events will unfold in ways that none of them could have predicted, to make this the most momentous summer of all.
What made the experience of listening to As Close as Sisters the most enjoyable?
This book was so easy flowing. Even though it jumped around from past to present, you were never confused. It was written very well. I enjoyed this book because of the way it was written and the narrators are wonderful.
What did you like best about this story?
The story itself is something a lot of us women in life all go through in someway or another with our friends. Maybe not in the same story line, but I believe we all have similar friends. We have friends, that are all so different than us, but we are all so close and we need each other in our life's so much.
What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
I believe the narrators make the story come to life. If reading the book rather than listing to it, it just would not have been the same experience.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
This book made me laugh and made me cry.
Any additional comments?
I recommend this book to everyone out there.
