I found this book sitting in the thrift store one day and began flipping through. Within the first few pages,was hooked. I absolutely love the character of Aggie. And I also don't know how to write a review...

Three sisters, Helen (20), Jeannie(18), & Aggie(14) inherit their grandfathers home in a small Canadian town. They seem like outcasts & the town won't let them forget the sins of their father who died in Jail. Acceptance, forgiveness. Good
