Three sisters struggle with the bonds that hold their family together as they face a darkness settling over their lives in this masterfully written debut novel.
There are three beautiful blond Babcock sisters: gorgeous and foul-mouthed Adrienne, observant and shy Vanessa, and the youngest and best-loved, Marie. Their mother is ill with leukemia and the girls spend a lot of time with her at a Mexican clinic across the border from their San Diego home so she can receive alternative treatments.
Vanessa is the middle child, a talented pianist who is trying to hold her family together despite the painful loss that they all know is inevitable. As she and her sisters navigate first loves and college dreams, they are completely unaware that an illness far more insidious than cancer poisons their home. Their world is about to shatter under the weight of an incomprehensible betrayal…
Why am I waiting…
I have to thank Alyssa from Swept Away By Books
for putting this on my radar! I love that the synopsis doesn’t give anything away. Although when it says “they are completely unaware that an illness far more insidious than cancer poisons their home.”
I’m guessing, GUESSING, possibly mental illness?
What are you waiting on this week?!
