When Isabelle and Janie get letters from their mother, she informs them she will have open-heart surgery. She needs the sisters to help run the family bakery and take care of Henry and their aging grandmother. Unsurprisingly, they each flatly refuse to return. But through threats, intimidation and tears, Cecilia is able to convince both women to come home to
Oregon. All three women must face the past…and not allow it to destroy their futures.
While each sister is dealing with her memories, Henry is unexpectedly and delightfully happy with his life. Can he teach the sisters to appreciate the joys they have and banish the demons of their past?
HENRY’S SISTERS is touching, frustrating, hysterical, beautiful and impossible to put down. This book made me laugh out loud and then cry unmercifully. Realistically flawed but beautiful, these women drew me into a tantalizing story of family, love, betrayal, trust, forgiveness and life. I cannot recommend Cathy Lamb’s newest novel strongly enough. But,…keep the tissues handy!
