Review by Booklist Reviews

After their beloved grandmother's death, the Ashwood sisters gather to clear out her old home and shop. Avery, the oldest, has stayed in their small town near where their parents lived, managing her children's busy lives and trying to keep her surgeon husband happy with home-cooked dinners. Hannah has the summer off from her job as a violinist for the Boston Symphony, and offers to remodel the old house only to find that she inadvertently hired her high-school love to do the work. Lark turns the shop into a craft café and invites her sisters and their mother to work on a quilt together left unfinished by her grandmother. Each sister has been harboring a troubling, shocking secret only to be met with love and support from their family when each painful truth is revealed. Yates weaves surprises and vivid descriptions into this moving tale about strong and nurturing female family bonds. Fans of Sandra Dallas and Anne Tyler may especially enjoy this sparkling work of women's fiction. Copyright 2021 Booklist Reviews.
