What drove their family apart just might bring them back together…it’s been seventeen years since the tragic summer the McAvoy Sisters fell apart. Lindy, the wild one, left home, carved out a new life in the city and never looked back. Delia, the sister who stayed, became a mother herself, raising her daughters and running the family shop in their small Pennsylvania hometown on the shores of Lake Erie. But now, with their mother’s ailing health and a rebellious teenager to rein in, Delia has no choice but to welcome Lindy home. As the two sisters try to put their family back in order, they finally have the chance to reclaim what’s been lots over the years: for Delia, professional dreams and a happy marriage, and for Lindy, a sense of home and an old flame—and best of all, each other. But when one turbulent night leads to a shocking revelation, the women must face the past they’ve avoided for a decade. And there’s nothing like an old secret to bring the McAvoy women back together and stronger than ever. With warm affection and wry wit, Molly Fader’s The McAvoy Sisters Book of Secrets is about the ties that bind family and the power of secrets to hold us back or set us free.
This was a wonderful story about family secrets, growing apart and coming back together. The story is told through four different family members; the mother, Meredith, the two adult daughters, Delia and Lindy, and Brin, Delia’s daughter. I could relate to all of the characters and their beautiful, yet imperfect bonds with each other. It definitely made me wish I had a sister or daughter to share this story with.
After seventeen years of staying away, Lindy comes home after finding out her mother needs some extra care. This stirs up old memories, good and bad and ultimately helps the family to heal from the past. The events of the past aren’t completely clear from the beginning and are pieced together as you read along.
