Three Days until Coming Home is Available!
I posted this the last time around (Coming Home is a re-release; same story, but a complete revision of the original novel) and it’s still relevant.
Coming Home- A Tale of Two Sisters
My book Coming Home, is about two sisters learning to like each other. Growing up, Brenna and Kat’s different personalities, interests, wicked sibling rivalry, and of course being in love with the same boy made living under one roof almost unbearable. I had the same problem with my sister when I was younger except the loving the same boy. Let’s just say the boys she was interested in – ewww!
My sister and I resented each other from the get-go. It didn’t help that she was adopted, so there was a lot of resentment about me being the ‘natural’ daughter and from her being the ‘special, chosen’ one. I honestly don’t know how my parents survived those years. Kristi and I were constantly at each other’s throats and did our best to get the other in trouble. And to top it all off, our birthdays are only a week apart, so there was the added stress of having to share our birthday parties!
But there is a happy ending to our saga. Like Brenna and Kat, it took a crisis to have Kristi and I find our way back to each other. As we got older, and more mature, our relationship did improve enough to allow us at least be in the same room together without fighting, although there are a few stories of flying mashed potatoes during family dinners. I think it helped being an hour’s drive away from each other. We weren’t exactly friends, but we were at least friendly and my parents were grateful.
But it took my sister getting divorced to really lead us back to each other. Kristi endured almost twenty years with a real…let’s just say my former brother-in-law was not a nice person and leave it at that. When I found out what she had gone through, without me knowing anything – well that was a real wake-up call. Sisters should be there for each, no matter how volatile the relationship may be. I’m sad that it took Kristi going through such a traumatic event to bring us back together, but forever grateful I got my sister back!
Liking them is the hard part.
