About the book: If these three sisters don’t change direction, they’ll end up where they’re going.
Darlene Caldwell, reigning matriarch of Sycamores, a spacious Southern estate in northern Florida, is having a birthday—her fiftieth. Her younger sister, Nolie, is helping Darlene’s boyfriend, Henry, plan a huge celebration that will involve almost everyone in the small town of Peculiar. But Darlene doesn’t know the party planners have invited her twin sister, Carlene, to come from New York for the festivities—after all, it’s Carlene’s birthday, too, and before Carlene went off to become a famous singer on Broadway she was toasted as Peculiar’s Buttercup Squash Festival Queen.
So Nolie and Henry send off the invitation…and are stunned when Carlene actually shows up, dragging luggage and a load of family baggage in her wake. Can these sisters reach an understanding and learn to live together in peace?
My Comments: This book so made me want to have sisters or at least a sister. What a bond these women had and how different each one was. Wait, maybe the jealousy and trickery between sisters as this story showed, may not be so much fun. Friends can be bad enough in that regard! Drama, hurt, jealousy, dishonesty, history, changes, all these adjectives describe this book. Twins – how fun, sharing the same birthday and womb, how different and yet so much alike! All in all, I loved this book which is a fun, fun slice of life read. The story spans over several decades. It was set in current times yet flashbacked to tell other parts of the story we needed in order to understand the baggage each sister carried. The twins could be people I actually know, but the third sister was a little quirky. She was somebody I would like to know, though. Angela Hunt writes different types of stories. I haven’t read one of her books I didn’t like. This one included!
