Publisher's Summary

Leaving fans "practically [begging] for a sequel" (Bookpage), critically acclaimed author Kristy Woodson Harvey returns with the second novel in her beloved Peachtree Bluff series, featuring a trio of sisters and their mother who discover a truth that will change not only the way they see themselves, but also how they fit together as a family.

After finding out her military husband is missing in action, middle sister Sloane's world crumbles as her worst nightmare comes true. She can barely climb out of bed, much less summon the strength to be the parent her children deserve.

Her mother, Ansley, provides a much-needed respite as she puts her personal life on hold to help Sloane and her grandchildren wade through their new grief-stricken lives. But between caring for her own aging mother, her daughters, and her grandchildren, Ansley's private worry is that secrets from her past will come to light.

But when Sloane's sisters, Caroline and Emerson, remind Sloane that no matter what, she promised her husband she would carry on for their young sons, Sloane finds the support and courage she needs to chase her biggest dreams - and face her deepest fears. Taking a cue from her middle daughter, Ansley takes her own leap of faith and realizes that, after all this time, she might finally be able to have it all.

Harvey's signature warmth and wit make this a charming and poignant story of first loves, missed opportunities, and second chances and proves that she is "the next major voice in Southern fiction" (Elin Hilderbrand, New York Times best-selling author).

Sloane's narrator turned me off big time

sloane's narrator was pretty bad. her tone rose and fell the exact same way throughout the entire novel.

great sequel to the first book; I just wish I had read it instead of listening.

Narrator

The narrator for Sloan’s section was absolutely horrible. Her inflection literally almost made me stop listening.

A good summer book

A light and enjoyable story that I liked just as much as the first book. Left me wanting more and hoping the story will continue

Good story but difficult to get through

This storyline is too drawn out in details that were already identified in book 1. The voice for Sloan is extremely boring and monotonous. I want to listen to the next book to finish the story but I am dreading the monologue!

beautiful story and wonderful readers

this novel tells the story of 3 sisters who are trying to find themselves as they endure their individual struggles. The heart of the novel centers on the complexities and beauty of family and what makes a house a home. The 2 readers were some of the best I have listened to. They truly brought the book to life.

A bit slower than 1st book.

I found the first book in this series much more interesting. Sort of too much information.

Easy listen

I am pretty picky about audiobooks, so if I am able to listen to an entire story, I am elated. The narrator reads at a perfect speed and has enough of a voice change that I can easily differentiate between the different characters. I am looking forward to number 3 in the series. If you liked the first one, you should like this one.

Well worth the listen

#2 in the series lived up to the first one and I loved the story of Sloane and Adam and the rest of the family. A very satisfying read and so well narrated.

Great heartfelt story

Another great book by Kristy Woodson Harvey about a loving mother and her 3 girls! I love how she develops each character’s life and incorporates them all together. I would definitely recommend this book and the first book in this series if you are looking for a light hearted read!
