- Not available
A glorious, uplifting story about the joys and heartbreaks of sisterhood, from the Number One bestselling author of The House of Memories and Lola's Secret.
'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 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 . . .
