There were three stories going on in this novel. I was rather confused by this because the only thing these three stories had in common was the fact that the girl in each was born on the same day and year.

This book has three stories in it, the best one was Hester’s I thought. When reading the parts about Hester I found I could not put the book down, however Anna’s and Lilibets I felt like they were just fillers, although it did seem to come altogether in the end but it was along time coming. All in all though a fairly good read.

I found this book a bit draggy at the beginning especially the first half, 🤔but it is best to stick with it as the second half is a lot better and important to understand for the final ending of the book.
Once I got through the fist half I enjoyed the last half right up to the end.

I always enjoy Katie Flynn books and this one was no different. I loved following the stories of the three girls growing up. Katie has a way of making the story come alive, well deserved five stars.
