“Thank goodness it’s fiction.”
This is a twisted tale that starts out telling two separate stories. We meet Wren, who is determined to keep her and her younger sister, Sage, alive despite their mother leaving them months before to get their youngest sister, Evie, medical attention. We also need Nicolette, a wealthy heiress married to a famous photographer who is desperate to start the process to foster children. It consumes her almost as much as how secretive her husband is behaving.
At the beginning of this book, I expected some sort of “The Village” plot to go down. How wrong I was! This is such a unique and clever story, with dynamic themes and charming characters.
This is a story about family, forgiveness, and strength. I loved Wren and Nicolette. They were such beautifully written characters. The bond between sisters is strong, and the love of a family is stronger. This is such a fantastic novel. I absolutely recommend this one!
