Some authors have a way of grabbing you from the very first sentence … and Marie Bostwick is one of those authors. I really enjoyed this book. CRDL does not currently own a copy of this title, but it can be obtained through MeLCat. I would recommend this book — this author really, for anyone who enjoys Debbie Macomber, Elin Hilderbrand, Kristin Hannah or Jane Green.
The Promise Girls
Kensington Publishing Corporation
March 28, 2017
Every child prodigy grows up eventually. For the Promise sisters, escaping their mother's narcissism and the notoriety that came with her bestselling book hasn't been easy. Minerva Promise claimed that her three "test tube" daughters--gifted pianist Joanie, artistic Meg, and storyteller Avery--were engineered and molded to be geniuses. In adulthood, their modest lives fall far short of her grand ambitions. But now, twenty years after the book's release, she hopes to redeem herself by taking part in a new documentary.
Meg, who hasn't picked up a paintbrush in years, adamantly refuses to participate, until a car accident leaves her with crushing medical bills. While she recuperates in Seattle, the three sisters reluctantly meet with filmmaker Hal Seeger, another former prodigy. Like them, he's familiar with the weight of failed potential. But as he digs deeper, he uncovers secrets they've hidden from each other--and a revelation that will challenge their beliefs, even as it spurs them to forge their own extraordinary lives at last.
