Once again, I don't know where I read about this book and added it to my audiobook rental shelf, but it was VERY interesting. It was a slow start, however. Meeting the two half-sisters and understanding that they are VERY different people would have been more interesting if one of them hadn't irritated me so much. But their tale of discovering they like one another, and the personal growth each experiences over their month together, preparing to sell the house of their summer childhood, grows on you. Had it been a book I was reading, I might have given up after 100 pages (that's my rule: hook me by the 100th page). But because I didn't have another audiobook to pop in, I stuck with it, and was glad I did. Note to the reader, though, I was about half way thru before I was hooked. And it has inspired me to re-read Gatsby. Stick with it.
