Karen White Books Overview
From the New York Times bestselling author
Revised and expanded for this new trade paperback edition, Karen White’s novel tells a poignant story of two estranged sisters. At twenty Cassie Madison left her hometown of Walton, Georgia, for New York City, where she has reinvented herself-from losing herself in her career to squashing her accent. But one night a single phone call brings back everything she’s tried to forget. She hasn’t spoken to her sister since Harriet stole Cassie’s fiance and married him. But now Harriet’s on the line with news that their father is dying.
As she makes the trip back, the only thing that frightens Cassie more than losing her father is seeing Harriet and the family that should have been hers. But she can’t help loving her nephews and nieces any more than she can help feeling at home again in Walton. As she fights a surprising reaction to a forgotten friend, and faces an unexpected threat to the family she’d once left behind, Cassie comes to realize that moving on doesn’t always mean moving away from who you are.
