3.5ish hey I liked this stars!

This is my first Barabara Samuel book and her writing was lovely! This books has two larger sections - the beginning is in the "past" and the second is in the "present." Much of the past section is so good but I think it could have been shortened a little bit to give more of an edge for the present scenes. I bought this book because I wanted to begin reading Samuel AND because this cover is absolutely stunning! (also Judith Ivory blurbs it! and I don't even give a shit about blurbs but I did scream when I saw Judy on the cover)… (mais)

An okay book about sister?s of a sister believed to be dead, but has reinvented herself. She is now clean, sober and a wife and mother with a new name. The sister finds where her sister is and must come to terms with the deception that sister has created and how it effects the mother and sister she left behind. Goodreads: From the author of The Art of Inheriting Secrets comes an emotional new tale of two sisters, an ocean of lies, and a search for the truth.Her sister has been dead for fifteen years when she sees her on the TV newsJosie Bianci was killed years ago on a train during a terrorist attack. Gone forever. It?s what her sister, Kit, an ER doctor in Santa Cruz, has always believed. Yet all it takes is a few heart-wrenching seconds to upend Kit?s world. Live coverage of a club fire in Auckland has captured the image of a woman stumbling through the smoke and debris. Her resemblance to Josie is unbelievable. And unmistakable. With it comes a flood of emotionsÂ¥grief, loss, and angerÂ¥that Kit finally has a chance to put to rest: by finding the sister who?s been living a lie.After arriving in New Zealand, Kit begins her journey with the memories of the past: of days spent on the beach with Josie. Of a lost teenage boy who?d become part of their family. And of a trauma that has haunted Kit and Josie their entire lives.Now, if two sisters are to reunite, it can only be by unearthing long-buried secrets and facing a devastating truth that has kept them apart far too long. To regain their relationship, they may have to lose everything.… (mais)

This was the first book of my vacation. I loved it. It's a sweet story and I have been thinking about going home to bake bread since I finished it.

It took a little getting used to though, that the main character, a grandmother, was only 40!

I liked it enough to download the author's other two novels right from my beach chair (but I didn't start to read them yet.)

I liked the unique plot, but I got a little tired of the "Leave. No, don't leave!" "I'm leaving. Wait. I'm not leaving." It just happened too many times.
