In this big juicy novel, bestselling author Hannah (Firefly Lane) scores again with a tale of three sisters set in the sprawling ranchlands of Washington state. The girls, who lose their mother early on, are thick as thieves, but their bond is fractured when the oldest—sturdy, can-do Winona—loses her crush to the younger, prettier Vivi Ann. Disobeying their credo "Sisters trump men," the trio is nearly undone by sibling rivalry, social injustice and a gossip-mad small town. Deliciously romantic and often heartbreaking, this is a book you'll want to climb inside of and stay as long as possible.
