Publisher's Summary

From the New York Times best-selling author RaeAnne Thayne comes a brand-new novel for fans of Debbie Macomber and Susan Wiggs. RaeAnne Thayne tells the story of an emotional homecoming that brings hope and healing to three generations of women.

The life Olivia Harper always dreamed of isn’t so dreamy these days. The 16-hour work days are unfulfilling and so are things with her on-again, off-again boyfriend. But when she hears that her estranged mother, Juliet, has been seriously injured, Liv has no choice but to pack up her life and head home to beautiful Cape Sanctuary on the Northern California coast.

It’s just for a few months - that’s what Liv keeps telling herself. But the closer she gets to Cape Sanctuary, the painful memories start flooding back: Natalie, her vibrant, passionate older sister who downward-spiraled into addiction. The fights with her mother who enabled her sister at every turn. The overdose that took Natalie, leaving her now-teenaged daughter, Caitlin, an orphan.

As Liv tries to balance her own needs with those of her injured mother and an obstinate, resentful 15-year-old, it becomes clear that all three Harper women have been keeping heartbreaking secrets from one another. And as those secrets are revealed, Liv, Juliet, and Caitlin will see that it’s never too late - or too early - to heal family wounds and find forgiveness.

Don't miss Thayne's next release, The Path to Sunshine Cove: three love stories in one with the emotional pull of Debbie Macomber, Barbara Delinsky, and Susan Wiggs!

same samo - books all the same

Like I wrote on the last two, the stories are sounding exactly the same. if you're new to this author, enjoy. once you're hooked on the characters, 12 books in, it's like a script. kinda like reading a mad lib sheet. woman's name, man's name, conflict: CHARACTERS CAN'T BE TOGETHER NO MATTER WHAT, Location: coming home, never thought i would but missed it. I love it here. Timeline: 2-3 weeks.... yep every story has them fall in love, can't live without you in 2-3 WEEKS... NOT MONTHS OR YEARS... WEEKS!!! EVERY STORY. WHO DOES THAT at that ratio? I almost can't listen anymore or have to fast fwd bc I know what's coming. to include REPITITIOUS MONOLOGS!!!!

WONDERFUL STORY!!!

I'm such a fan of RaeAnne Thayne and this doesn't disappoint! Vanessa Johansson so vividly brought the characters to life. The story warms the heart and leaves you with the feeling that everything is going to be ok!!!! It's a nice feeling that we all need in this troublesome time in the world.

Meh

If asked to describe this book in three words they’d be tepid, vanilla and mediocre. Not horrible but not great, just kind of okay.

Enjoyed

I love all of her stories and have been a fan since the beginning. This is a favorite because we get the opportunity to discover so much about the individual characters. They each get their opportunity to shine in this story. Love how we get to go on the journey of the friendship.

repetitive, derivative & boring

Couldn't finish it. I really gave it a good try- made it halfway. The story was so predictable. The descriptive emotions were repetitive and derivative. I kept falling asleep listening to it. I struggled with the narration. especially her voice for Olivia's mother.

Nothing special

Sweet story that could have been told in 1/3 of the time. It dragged into silly details. Could space out for a while and not miss anything

A bit too much repeating

Repetitive descriptions of each person’s secrets really became too much. Great story beyond that. Enjoyed the clean writing without the amuck that other writers find important. I’ll take repetition over a lot of sex scenes.

A Beautiful Story

This book was so rich in detail, a lovely heartwarming family story. Each character was described in such depth that you felt you were part of the family too
