To the outside world, Cassie Reynolds has it all - a happy marriage, two gorgeous daughters, and a successful career. And Cassie adores her family and will do anything to make them happy. But underneath it all, Cassie is struggling. She has never gotten over the fact that her mother had walked out on her and her sister all those years ago, and in trying to guarantee the perfect childhood for her own kids, the strain is starting to show. With her husband spending all of his spare time with his widowed mother, two teenagers who don't appreciate anything she does, and a stressful job working for the Wicked Witch of the West, it becomes all too easy to reach for that extra glass of wine...
Coco doesn't remember her mother and adores her older sister Cassie, and their grandmother Pearl, who had raised them with loving care. Self-employed, running her vintage store, Coco stays clear of commitment ever since her relationship with Red ended so badly. She has her best friend and her family, and she knows that staying clear of romantic love is the much safer option. You can't get hurt if you are on your own, even if it does get lonely sometimes. But sadly life has other plans...
When life takes a sudden turn for both Cassie and Coco, their lives will never be the same again. For sometimes to pull yourself out of the darkness, you are forced to revisit the past. Pearl begins to doubt her actions from all those years ago and yearns to help her girls face their fears so that they can truly be happy. With gentle wisdom and the beautiful little community of Delaney Gardens, this contemporary tale of mistakes, regrets, and the meaning of family is sure to bring a tear to your eye.
BETWEEN SISTERS by Cathy Kelly is an emotional story about making mistakes and trying to find a way to be happy. This story tackles the serious issues throughout with dignity and grace, and I completely fell in love with the close-knit community of Delaney Gardens. While I enjoyed this story, the pace was a little too slow for me, and I did think certain parts were a tad drawn out. But overall I would still recommend BETWEEN SISTERS by Cathy Kelly.
BOOK RATING - 📖📖📖 3+
Born in Belfast but raised in Dublin, Cathy initially worked for thirteen years as a newspaper journalist with a national Irish Sunday newspaper, where she worked in news, features, along with spending time as an agony aunt and the paper’s film critic. However, her overwhelming love was always fiction and she published her first international bestseller, Woman To Woman, in 1997. She did not become a full-time writer until she had written another two books (She’s The One and Never Too Late) and finally decided to leave the world of journalism in 2001, moving to HarperCollins Publishers at the same time. She lives with her husband, John, their twin sons, Dylan and Murray, and their three dogs in Enniskerry, Co Wicklow. For more information:
