AFrom the New York Times Revised and expanded for this new trade paperback edition, Karen White's novel tells a poignant story of two estranged sisters. At twenty Cassie Madison left her hometown of Walton, Georgia, for New York City, where she has reinvented herself-from losing herself in her career to squashing her accent. But one night a single phone call brings back everything she's tried to forget. She hasn't spoken to her sister since Harriet stole Cassie's fiance and married him. But now Harriet's on the line with news that their father is dying. As she makes the trip back, the only thing that frightens Cassie more than losing her father is seeing Harriet and the family that should have been hers. But she can't help loving her nephews and nieces any more than she can help feeling at home again in Walton. As she fights a surprising reaction to a forgotten friend, and faces an unexpected threat to the family she'd once left behind, Cassie comes to realize that moving on doesn't always mean moving away from who you are.

I am not much of a romance fan. The story was not what I really expected given the description. Cassie was extranged for 15 years, I expected a bit more of a story line coming to terms with the estrangement. Joe hardly featured in that part of the story. It was predictable. The story line with Sam was also a bit off, although he was very likeable, I thought it was a little weird for him to have liked her for so long and expect her to return the feeling quickly when she has been gone (and leading such a different life) for so long (as well as give up a highly successful career). I found the ending to be a little contrived.

Very much a beach read. This is not my favorite of her books; however, I read them all. Folly Beach and The Color of Light I adored.

I don't usually do romance books but I really liked this one. It's a bit "Sweet Home Alabama" in its predictability but I enjoyed it anyway. Sweet characters, tinged with love and tragedy. I might check out more from this author.

Her descriptions of everything were so detailed and wonderful. I cried when anything tragic happened and I yelled at Cassie about how stupid she was. The Book was believe able and I fell into that world. It's one where I was kind of happy and very sad to reach the end.
