A glorious, uplifting story about the joys and heartbreaks of sisterhood, from the Number One bestseller 'I've got something very important I want the three of you to do for me.' Once as close-knit as sisters can be, Anna, Bett and Carrie haven't spoken in three years. They are still feeling the effects of the fight which tore them apart - but a summons to their grandmother's birthday party forces them out of their silence. Lola, the big-hearted, strong-willed grandmother who first nicknamed them the Alphabet Sisters, has a plan to reunite them. And while none of the women is eager to confront the past, each has a new reason to long for their sisters' support. But just as they find their way back to one another, the sisters are rocked by a greater challenge than ever before - one that will teach them the true value of family . . . 'You'll be laughing out loud one minute and crying the next' Cosmopolitan *Don't miss the next Quinlan family stories - Lola's Secret and The Trip of a Lifetime are available now!*
