In the popular genre of romance, devotees want engrossing stories with happy endings. Kristin Hannah's fans will not be disappointed by this look into the lives of two very different women who happen to be half-sisters. With only their past in common, Meghann Dontess and Claire Cavenaugh try to find the elusive thread of family lost years ago. Laural Merlington's reading lends credibility to Meghann's rationalizations for choosing career over marriage and emotional commitments. Unfortunately, with the exception of the sisters, Hannah's characters lack substance. Merlington's performance helps Hannah's florid descriptions sound less effusive, although her rendition of Claire's "precious" daughter may give listeners sugar-shock. Even so, with Merlington's able help, fans will be able to suspend disbelief, get the tissues, and have a bawl. S.J.H. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 03]
