When Poppy Higgins left Yorktide, Maine, for Boston, she pictured future visits home as brief diversions from her real life in the big city. Fate had different ideas, and at twenty-five, Poppy has been called back to care for her two younger sisters following their father’s death.
"This heartfelt and warm novel leaves readers with a sense of hope and wellbeing. The Higgins sisters are unique and beautiful characters whose deep love for each other and their friends endears them to readers. Appropriately paced and not overly dramatic, SUMMER WITH MY SISTERS is a wonderful summertime read."
