Description
Faith, Hope, and Joy. As children, the Garland sisters seemed to fit together as seamlessly as their names. Banding together helped them survive their free-spirited parents, who moved from place to place and whim to whim, until their father took off for good. But as the girls grew up, they became virtual strangers. This Christmas, they intend to spend the holidays in their usual way- far apart. But their ailing grandmother wants her girls around her once more, and Hope, always the peacemaker, convinces her reluctant sisters to travel to Leavenworth, Washington. Hope is immediately charmed by the unique setting, modeled on a Bavarian village, and by her grandmother's handsome, mysterious neighbor. Still, there's scant trace of celebration within the Garland family. Joy's main motivation for visiting is to secure start-up funds for a coffee shop. Faith, oblivious to her children's unhappiness, is waiting until the holidays are over to announce that her marriage is over and she has a new love. With a festive schedule of candy-cane martinis, hot tubs, and snowball fights, Hope tries to expose and heal old resentments, but moving forward as a family will take more than a little seasonal goodwill. Against a stunning winter backdrop, Mary Carter brings rare insight to the deep and complicated nature of sisterhood-a bond that endures far beyond childhood, and can always bring us home again. Praise for Mary Carter and her novels "Guaranteed to become one of the books on your shelf that you'll want to read again." - The Free Lance-Star on The Pub Across the Pond "The unique spin Carter takes on the familiar theme of self-discovery gives this a welcome, fresh feel." --Publishers Weekly on My Sister's Voice
