I liked it but it was a bit cheezy. Megan, the single, career woman, divorce lawyer/Claire, the mother, who was raising her daughter while single and living with her father. Why weren't Megan and Claire, sisters, speaking? Megan had almost raised her younger sister, Claire, ever since their mother had taken off with some man. They had different fathers, and when it came time for Megan to let DCFS come into the picture or seek help, she sought the help of Claire's father, Sam. Sam was apparently the only good man their mother had ever been with. Megan left Claire with Sam after trying to also live in the house, but Megan reminded Sam so much of her mother and Megan was so independent, that Sam didn't know how to communicate with her. Sam ended up shying away from her and Megan ended up leaving without a word. Rather than face their separation and the hurt, Megan sought psychiatric help for about ten years. I could go on and on, but I'd sound like a soap opera. The book just gets cheezier as it goes along.

This book was a far cry from "Winter Garden", but then I guess Kristin Hannah had to practice her skills before she really became great!

(Of particular interest was "Joe". I enjoyed him.)
