Descrizione

Meghann Dontess is a woman haunted by heartbreak. Twenty-seven years ago she was forced to make a terrible choice, one that cost her everything, including the love of her sister, Claire. Now, Meghann is a hotshot divorce attorney who doesn't believe in intimacy—until she meets the one man who can change her mind.

Claire Cavenaugh has fallen in love for the first time in her life. As her wedding day approaches, she prepares to face her harsh, judgmental older sister. It is the first time they have been together in more than two decades. Over the course of a hot Pacific Northwest summer, these two women who believe they have nothing in common will try to become what they never were: a family.

Tender, funny, bittersweet, and wonderfully moving, Between Sisters celebrates the joys and heartaches that can be shared only by sisters, the mistakes made in the name of love, and the healing power of new beginnings—all beautifully told by acclaimed author Kristin Hannah.

    Predictable

    When an older sister does what she thinks is best for her little sister it causes a rift between the two. Many years later a shooting, wedding and serious illness finally bring these two sisters together again. Although I found the story line a little unbelievable at times I still enjoyed this book.
  • (5/5)
    This is one of the best books I've read in a while...can't wait to read more from this author!!
  • (3/5)
    Actually read this after Distant Shores, which is good, since it's related and takes place after. Despite there being just a few too many bounces between characters, I still liked it. Just not as much as the other two. Maybe I'm reading too many by the same author in a row.
  • (3/5)
    Not my favorite Hannah book, but an okay read. This is one of her older efforts, and I felt the characters were not as well written as in later books. It was also very clear early on who would end up involved with whom. Bobby was the only surprise character.

    A hot-shot attorney, Meghann Dontess is miserable. Unfinished business with her mother and especially her sister haunt her. This book is the resolution. Easy, reasonably predictable, but an enjoyable light summer read.
  • (3/5)
    After a bad childhood with a neglectful mother, two sisters have a distant and complicated relationship at best. As a divorce lawyer, Meghann finds herself running to save her sister from marrying a man that she met at a bar a couple of weeks ago. He is also a felon and has been married 3 times before. At the very least she needs to get her to sign a prenup. Things dont go according to plan for either of them and they must figure out how to let go of the guilt, shame and blame they are carrying over from the past..
  • (5/5)
    The bonds of sisters are explored in this book by Kristin Hannah. The story explores the lives of two sisters who have gone their separate ways in life and have chosen not to be a part of each other's lives. When life throws a wrench in their lives they are pulled back together to work through what separated them to begin with and make a new start being sisters, being family. A great story about family dynamics, coming apart, coming together, love, loss, anger and healing.

    sisters who took different paths reunite

    Screw you, Between Sisters, using a 36 point font...

    Aside from that, this book was a fast read (not a surprise, as I could see all of the words on a page from across the room). Again, very Lifetime movie-ish from Kristin Hannah, but like I've said before, I'm not above Lifetime movies. Point me to a mini-marathon starring Meredith Baxter and I'm there.

    Not Firefly Lane but I enjoyed it.
  • (5/5)
    I did the ugly cry reading this book. I just love all her books.
  • (5/5)
    A real tear jerker that had me glued to the story even though the romance took a back seat. It was sometimes slow at the beginning but maybe that was needed because I identified with the emotions of each main character. Attorney Meg has a forced vacation and ends up planning a wedding for her estranged sister.
  • (4/5)
    Meg and Claire are sisters that were separated years ago but on working on rebuilding their relationship. Along they way they each fall in love and learn to love and trust others. I enjoyed following all of the relationships as they grew and really enjoyed how all of the characters worked through their problems.
  • (3/5)
    This book is a fast read. This is about how two sisters are there for each other through ups and downs. Too bad I have no sister myself.

    I just complained how the problem about the sister having cancer is solved easily. Unrealistic, I must say. But this touched me so that's good.

    Very wam, loving story. Recommended for anyone who has experienced family.challenged
  • (3/5)
    I love Kristin Hannah’s writing but this was definitely not one of my favourites from her. It’s an ok story, but I felt it dragged immensely in the first half, and lacked the emotional depth of her other work. Good for a light holiday listen.
  • (2/5)
    boring, too drawn out with some interesting patches. as if love solves all.
  • (5/5)
    I really enjoyed this book. It was a bit predictable but what’s wrong with that. Happy ending, which I always love.
  • (5/5)
    Such a beautiful story. I laughed, cried and have been left feeling very grateful for my own life story.

    very good book

    I should know better than to read a Kristin Hannah book at work. I was a crying mess as I was sitting in the office at lunch! Another amazing read from this author. This did have a slower start for me than her other books, but once it picked up it never let go. Expect an emotional rode with this one and get the tissues ready.

    Picked up because I previously enjoyed another Kristin Hannah novel. At first I was worried I wouldn't identify with the characters, because they're older than what I normally read and in more complex life situations. However, Hannah has yet to fail to draw me into her stories. Her characters and their relationships are full of interesting layers.

    Sibling relationships can be complicated, especially half-sisters with a large age gap. Throw in a undependable mother and hardship, and you've got a life-time of therapy. Meghann Dontess happens to be in therapy. As a divorce attorney, she hates the fact that her, somewhat-estranged, younger sister is rushing into marriage with a man she barely knows. But Meghann is forced to deal with the situation and some of the skeletons in her closet as she plans her sister's dream wedding.

    Between Sisters knocked the socks right off of me. I wasn’t expecting such a heartfelt book. There was so much going on, but somehow I never lost track. I connected to every character. Each had their own place in the book. It was easy for me to understand what they were all about.It’s a story about two sisters who bonded when they were children because of the way they were brought up. Meghan was there for Claire while their mother wasn’t. They shared everything. There was a point when Meghan had to make the choice of leaving Claire with her father. They have grown further apart each year that they had been separated. They both have grown in different ways that the other doesn’t understand.In Between Sisters we see the life of Meghan and Claire, two sisters have lost their relationship, but as life happens they regain the friendship and the bond they once had. The separation had changed them both. Where they use to be the best of friends, now they hardly speak. Neither of them spoke about the time when Claire was left behind with her father and Meghan walked away.Circumstances has brought them back together. It isn’t easy for either of them. They don’t say the words that they know they ought to. They get along like they ought to, but they are distant. They struggle with their new relationship and with the old relationship that they had and their past.Again circumstances, have bonded them like never before. They aren’t the same young girls, but now grown women. It may sound like another novel you may have read in the past, but let me assure you that this story is explosive. It grabs a hold of your heart and your emotions. It’s a wonderful story written to make you smile, laugh, shake your head, cry and appreciate the life you have.Without a doubt, it’s the best book I have read this year and one of my all time favorites.

    Meghan Dontess & Claire Cavenaugh are sisters who really don't know how to communicate anymore after their tough childhood. Meghan a successful divorce lawyer is dead set against love after all of her trials and tribulations between childhood, a failed marriage and dealing with everyone else's divorces. Claire loves so much even with what their childhood brought to her and Meghan however she has waited many years to get married or to find just the right man while raising her daughter by herself and running a successful camground. What a great story of the two sisters coming back into each others life because Claire falls in love hard and fast finally, then when everything looks so good for her, she is diagnosed with an inoperabe brain tumor. While with Claire planning her wedding Meghan undeniably falls in love once again, but pushs hard to keep it at an arms length. What a wonderful story of sisters coming together once again and actually being there for each other through some very difficult times.

    Whew! What a ride! Without giving spoilers, this book kept me on the edge of my seat and caught me by surprise more than once. It really gave an accurate picture of the relationship of sisters, and the ebb and flow of the intimacy of family, and yet captures the priority we all put on what really matters to us.
