New York Times bestselling author Luanne Rice explores the complex emotional equations of love and loyalty that hold together three pairs of remarkable sisters, in an unforgettable story of loss, redemption, and forgiveness
 
The storm off Mackinac Island that engulfed Maura Shaw's husband and elder daughter,Carrie, also swept away the illusion of her life as the perfect midwestern wife and mother. Now, after years away, Maura has returned to Rhode Island to teach English at the fabled Newport Academy and to seek a new beginning. Newport has never failed to infuse Maura with a sense of mystery and hope, but ever since the accident, her younger daughter, fourteen-year-old Beck, has retreated into the safe, predictable world of mathematics. Without Carrie, Beck has lost half of herself--the half that would have fit into the elite private school she and her brother, Travis, will attend. The half that made things right. Sixteen-year-old Travis is also struggling to adjust--juggling a long-distance first love and an attraction to a girl with a wicked sparkle in her eye. And for Maura, ghosts linger here--an unresolved breach with her own beloved sister and a long-ago secret that may now have the power to set her free. . . .

Although slow to start, I did enjoy this novel about a family moving to Newport, Rhode Island after a family tragedy in Michigan. Three sets of sisters, two living and one dead, populate this story about love, betrayal, loss, and forgiveness. Rice has a way of creating characters that deal with adversity in unusual, interesting ways. The setting, a private academy that caters to New England's upper class, adds atmosphere to the novel with its superstitions and traditions.

This book was really good. The plot launched straight off the first page: mother and 2 teenage children headed to Rhode Island. Still grieving drowned father from a year ago and loss of oldest sister who is a runaway. Each character is clearly defined with quirks, strengths and weaknesses. The story kept my interest and had an excellent satisfying ending.
This is one of Rice's better books - not all are good.
My other 2 best favourites are Follow the Stars Home and Summer Light.
