This review is dedicated to the goodness of heart of a woman who was unknown to me at the time, but she is known as author Jane Lacey-Crane

My Review

What a beautiful story of loss and hope, tears and laughter, strangeness and familiarity, in short, a story about sisters and family. A second chance at life to build bridges.

Grace, Hope, Faith were three sisters where Faith was estranged. Grace had an ax to grind. Hope was close to Grace, yet far away from Faith. In the center of them, was Maggie, their loving mum. A catastrophe struck, and they lost everything. They had to start from scratch, support each other, build their relationships, and become a family again.

The story might seem familiar, but the words building it up were loving almost like the folds of a cashmere blanket, holding me safe when I needed to ground myself. The writing flowed around me like a gentle stream, just like life, showing me different facets of the three sisters. It took them time, but they got there, love binding them.

The prose showcased the author’s talents where each word was laden with emotions, some wrenching my heart while bringing a smile to my face. These relationships, which ought to have been easy, were fraught with tension and drama. There were a couple of secrets peeking out. This was a story about real people where a tragedy bound them with the strings of love and helped them heal.

Nothing was easy, but this family got there. And I loved going on this journey where even they lost hope, they found their support in each other. New relationships saw them facing life once again where love abounded and it was all true.

Friends come and go. SISTERS ARE FOREVER.

Book Blurb

In the wake of tragedy, two sisters have to piece their family back together again…

Grace never thought she’d have to return home to Floral Street. Having spent most of her life building a successful career in London, she’s done everything she possibly can to avoid the flower stall that’s been in her family for generations. But when tragedy hits, she’s got no choice. It’s time to face the demons of the past and support her family.

Faith has returned home after years travelling the world. The baby of the family, she always struggled to find her place. She thought that her life would be different after a trip across the globe, but as she settles back into life in her childhood room she has to come to terms with the fact her life isn’t quite what she expected. And she has no way of getting out of the rut she finds herself in.

Faith and Grace have never seen eye-to-eye, always clashing, never forgiving. But they might just find a way to understand one another, to fight their way through their grief and come out stronger. By opening up, they’ll discover they aren’t so different at all. And family will always be there for you.

    • She was a new one. A wonderful human being. I didn’t know who she was. But she was one of the firsts who supported me. So checked out her profile and saw the book, downloaded and read it. It was good tears with laughter

  1. Shalini, maybe I am missing something, but I don’t get the insulting comment at all. Writers want reviewers to read their books and post reviews to generate interest. If we are not provided the book, how are we going to do that? What is the commenter getting at?
    Hang in there. Social media brings out the best and worst in people depending on what is already in their hearts.

    • Ah that was a blog tour I wasn’t invited to. I just wrote on my friend’s blog that I never got the invitation, and I haven’t been getting it for some months.. so I assumed my reviews are good enough. The very next day I get a mail from organizer that I am unprofessional and if I want to read a book, I ought to buy it and not look to tours. I think I revealed the bias in the mails, that irritated her. The mail didn’t have any kind of wishing me or asking about my health. Just sarcasm dripping in it. I was pretty shocked. That was the context.
      People have become mean now, Linda, even when they know I have lost people and colleagues, they think free books are my priority
