McKenzie, Aurora, Lilly and Janine have been spending summers at Janine’s family Delaware beach cottage since the girls were twelve. At fourteen, a tragic accident happened sealing their relationships forever. Nearly three decades later they’ve grown AS CLOSE AS SISTERS (KensingtonBooks) and life continues to be complicated. They’ve survived high-school, college, ex-boyfriends, ex-husbands, estranged children and relationships so mis-matched at times, yet they’ve stayed together through it all.
But this summer may be their last. Janine is considering selling the cottage and McKenzie has stage four thyroid cancer which has spread to her lungs. Each woman is struggling with their friend’s impending death in her own way and it’s not always pretty. But that’s what makes AS CLOSE AS SISTERS work, the messiness of it. Life isn’t easy when things are going well, let alone when there’s a problem like cancer to be dealt with or any other number of challenges. I find hope in the fact they’ve cherished and protected their friendships for decades. Who does than anymore? Colleen Faulkner delivers a beautiful honest story of trust and love in AS CLOSE AS SISTERS and it’s my wish every woman gets to read it.
