From the New York Times bestselling author of Woman in Red and The Diary comes another emotionally charged family drama, focusing on two sisters and their turbulent lives and loves. While growing up, it was Lindsay's job to look after her little sister, Kerrie Ann. When the girls' stripper mom was sent to prison for selling drugs, their neighbor, a retired exotic dancer by the name of Miss Honi Love, fought to keep them, but to no avail. Thirty years later, Lindsay is the owner of a bookstore in the sleepy California seaside town of Blue Moon Bay. Adopted by a loving couple - from whom she inherited the home she shares with the ever-feisty Miss Honi - she's still trying to reconnect with her long-lost sister. Unbeknownst to Lindsay, Kerrie Ann has led a very different life, bounced from one foster home to the next. Now, newly sober, Kerrie Ann is fighting to regain custody of her little girl.

About the author (2010)

Eileen Goudge was born July 4, 1950 and grew up in the San Francisco bay area. She began writing at the age of eight. At eighteen, she dropped out of college, ran off with a man dodging the draft, and got married. Two years later, she was divorced, with a baby, and had to go on welfare. She decided to become a professional writer, started writing non-stop and managed to sell a few articles. In the early eighties, she was chosen to help launch a new line of teen romances, which became the successful Sweet Valley High series. She now had enough money to end another bad marriage and move to New York City with her two children. She continued to write the Sweet Valley High titles while working on a novel. Her first novel, Garden of Lies, was sold in 1986 to Viking for nearly one million dollars. Since then, she has written over thirty novels for young adults and over ten works of women's fiction. Her other works include Thorns of Truth, The Diary, and Once in a Blue Moon. Her title The Diary is a New York Times bestseller.
