Rose, who's struggling to reestablish herself after the death of her husband, Philip, suddenly finds hope and comfort in a growing friendship with her boss, Austin. Although she falls in love with his inner qualities, Austin remains a depressed, alcoholic mess who pines after his ex-wife. As their relationship evolves, Rose fights to maintain her dignity and preserve her independent identity as Austin shuffles through attempts at sobriety and fidelity. Lily, meanwhile, reunites with her former high school flame Tres but fears this will become yet another meaningless affair.
Understanding that "if you gave up on love, all that was left was money and horses," (and fully appreciating the value of good horseflesh), these two throw themselves after love with equal parts inspiring courage and realistic fear. While the simplicity of Mapson's writing style most often complements the purity of this unadorned plot, the substance of the novel remains the interactions of the two sisters. Readers who enjoy the pleasantly puzzling issues of siblinghood will find the dynamics between these two fascinating. --Nancy R.E. O'Brien

Fluff - a read for when your concentration is low. A liking for horses will help you enjoy this reasonably disguised romance.Published on July 14, 2013 by Jane Bruyns
I loved the difference between the Orange County sister and the New Mexico sister and how that made them different, but still loving NM.Published on February 9, 2013 by SusanK.
A good portrayal of two sisters who take very different paths and have their own baggage but who ultimately love each other. Read morePublished on December 10, 2012 by singngrand
