4.0 out of 5 stars the new sisters, March 7, 2008
This review is from: 'Round the Corner (The Sister Circle Series #2) (Paperback)
Second in the Sister Circle series, 'Round the Corner (Vonette Bright and Nancy Moser) continues the story of Evelyn Peerbaugh and her newly opened boardinghouse, Peerbaugh Place. The first group of tenants has moved out, although some have remained in the picture. Mae married a neighbor; Audra married Evelyn's son Russell and Evelyn is taking care of Audra's daughter Summer.

Now Evelyn has the challenge of selecting a new group of tenants. Compared to the sisterhood that developed the first time around, however, the new women, Gail and Heddy, don't quite seem to measure up. They appear to be hiding secrets and neither shows the slightest bit of interest in becoming friends with anyone.

Then Piper moves in, temporarily, to allow her parents to stay in her apartment. Her support helps Evelyn to continue to grow in strength and confidence; in turn, Evelyn lends a comforting shoulder to Piper. And slowly but surely, both Gail and Heddy begin to open up as their lives are touched by God and the other women.

Like the first volume, this one gets a little "preachy" in places but the story line is good, if predictable. There is an odd little rabbit trail about Anabelle, who wants to rent a room with Evelyn and believes she has been turned down because of her weight. It doesn't quite seem to fit with the rest of the story, but maybe Anabelle will show up again later.

In the meantime, it was fun visiting again with the regulars and getting to know the new folks. I'm off to find volume three and see what happens next.
