Well…Now Iwant a sister even morethan I already always have…

Growing up, having a sister was the one thing I wanted so badly. I wore down the Penderwicks from reading it over a zillion times, pouring over the dynamics of having a family of 4 sisters. Pretending I was Jane Penderwick, and my invisible friends (We all had those at some point, didn’t we?) were the remaining Penderwick sisters.

My best friend has an older sister that she is incredibly, incredibly close with, and I have always envied

I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for my honest review. I enjoyed this cute story about two sister's who must live together in their Grandmother's home for a full year in order to be able to continue to keep the house in the family. This is no easy feat for two highly independent women who have grown apart. Good writing, likeable characters, a little on the long side but still a good and heartwarming story.

What's more important than a bond between two sisters? Unfortunately Gracie and Juliette Bennett have no experienced that for several years. Their path's in life have taken them on different adventures on different ends of the country.

Grandma Mimi has other things up her sleeve though (with the help of their mother of course). She passes her home down to the girls under one condition. They are to live together, reconnect as sisters, for one year and then the house is theirs to do with as they

This book was one of those that took me a couple of chapters to get into, so if by any chance you find yourself with the same problem please please don’t give up it gets better!

I loved the fact that instead of choosing to be together the sisters had been effectively forced to live together albeit only for a year by the death of their dearly beloved Grandmother Mimi. The book centres on the this year of sisters Gracie and Juliette’s lives and how their relationship grows from season to season. I

I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. As an only child, I have often wondered what it would be like to have a sibling. This book allows you to experience being a sister with all the ups and downs that come along with it. Reading this book made me want a sister! What a touching story and enjoyable read! You won't regret reading this book!

A Sister's Place by author Savannah Page is a lovely story about the bonds of sisterhood, and how a beloved grandmother's legacy takes a pair of sisters on a year long journey of rediscovering how special a sisterly relationship that they truly have.

I have enjoyed reading author Savannah Page's When Girlfriends ... series, so when I saw that she wrote a women's fiction story about the special bonds of sisterhood, I knew that I just had to read it. From the wonderful book cover, to the enticing

Originally reviewed at Books Etc.

I've read (almost) all of Savannah Page's When Girlfriends series and loved them. So when I learned Page had a new stand alone women's fiction novel, I knew I needed to read it. I could not put A Sister's Place down. It's a Must Read.

This book will really resonate with you if you have a sister (but you'll still love it even if you don't). My advice though? Make sure you read it when you know you're able to see or at least text your sis. My own little sister is

A warm, comforting story. People who have siblings especially of the same sex will appreciate the adventurous ride it is to have a younger sibling. I don't have a sister but having a sibling close to my heart, I loved this story. It showed the ups and downs of having and sharing your personal space with a sibling. There are laughs, fights and ever changing dynamics and shows at the end of the day sibling love trumps the downs and family has a special place in our lives. My only complain is parts ...more

GNab I received a free electronic copy of this novel from Netgalley, Savannah Page, and Lake Union Publishing in exchange for an honest review. Thank you all for sharing your hard work with me.

I felt very invested in this tale of sisters, found myself rooting for them both and empathizing with Gracie as well as, occasionally, Juliette. This is a good tale, taking place in Santa Barbara, CA, with enough local color to make me add SB to my bucketlist, and to take me away from my cold day in New

This was a simple novel. The author seems to have a following so my guess is that this just isn't my type of story. I've read lots of sister stories and have enjoyed them, but this one never got off the ground for me. Not only did the story seem simplistic but the plot was silly. To each his own . . .

A long and tedious read

It to me more than a month to get through this book. It wasn't poorly written, per se; it just wasn't an attention grabber. The story, though, is a sweet one about two sisters who try to rekindle their relationship.

This story starts off with emotion. Gracie and Juliette are reading a letter from their grandmother Mimi, who recently passed away. Mimi places a challenge before them. They can claim ownership of the family home—if they live in it together for one year. Gracie and Juliette are sisters who are as different as night and day and this will definitely challenge them. But they do it for Mimi.

As we witness the seasons pass, the sisters go through their ups and downs where they sometimes wonder if

Relationships can be tricky. This is especially true for family!

Gracie and Juliette Bennett are sisters who let life pull them different directions. They've lost touch with each other, something that is soon put front and center when their beloved Mimi (grandmother) dies. Mimi has stipulated that they live in her Santa Barbara house for 1 year. At the end of that time, they can opt to sell and split the profit as their inheritance.

The novel follows them through the ups and downs of the one-year

By Savanah Page

A Sisterly Bonding Fest !

Gracie and Juliette Bennett, are sisters forced to live one year with each other in their grandmother's large rambling home to inherit it.

The two sisters, are total opposites. Gracie a paralegal, who lives her life crossing every T and dotting every I. And Juliette, a fresh out of college student and free spirit who lives in New York City.

Each chapter is told in a Gracie or Juliette perspective, which pulls the reader into the ups and

Many thanks NetGalley, Lake Union Publishing and Savannah Page for the ARC in exchange for an honest review..

This is the story of two sisters, now living very separate lives, who come together because of an inheritance. Gracie and Juliette have drifted apart, but their grandmother found a way to renew their relationship. In order for them to inherit the house, they would have to live in it together for a year.

I received this book as a free giveaway.

I tried so very hard not only to like this book, but also to get through it. It took me an insane amount of time to read, and even at that, I don't know how much stuck with me.

Quite frankly, this book is sweet, but bland and uneventful. It wasn't bad... it just wasn't good. There are so many books out there to read, I wish I had spent my time on something I enjoyed more than this.

Thank you to for the opportunity to read an Advanced Reader Copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.

Nestled in the picturesque city of Santa Barbara, the tale of two sisters forced to be roommates after their beloved grandmother passes has extreme potential. Naturally, there will be conflict – oil and water can only co-mingle for so long. There’s a lot of conflict between the two, when either sister is not being wishy-washy or whining about her own problems.

I throughly enjoyed A Sister's Place. A story of two young sister's forced to reside together for one year to fulfill the stipulations of a will leaving them the family home. The story line is all about their ups and downs trying to achieve this. Although it took me a few chapters in to become engaged in the book I found it very well written.

Lovely tale about the trials and tribulations of sisterhood.

I highly recommend this book. It's a light read with intriguing elements.
A story of two very different people coming together and rejoicing in their differences. A tale grief and how two sisters deal with the loss of a loved one while rekindling their relationship. A very nice read.

I won this book in a Giveaway and wanted to like it for that reason alone. Two sisters inherit their grandmothers house but the catch is they have to live in it together for one year. However; the characters just didn't work for me. I thought the sisters conversations with each other were not believable a little too scripted if that makes any sense. It just didn't work for me.
