Feelings of abandonment filled Helen at a too-young age when her mother died and her father walked out. Left in the care of her sister, Claire, she moved on, but never truly healed. Now thirty-five, married, and starting her own family, she must confront her inability to bear children by accepting the idea of adopting. But just when Helen experiences holding her new baby for the first time, she is blindsided with the worst possible news: Claire has cancer. Helen’s wounds are again torn open as she balances the delight of parenthood with the grief of her ailing sister. A poignant and probing exploration of life and loss, Daughters for a Time is a tale of unconditional love, the destructive and healing powers of family, and the search for solid ground between pain and joy.

    " I did enjoy this book. It was well written and I liked the story. It was kind of predictable but still good. It was about the relationship between 2 sisters and how they coped with their mom dying when they were young and having their father leave because he could not cope with it. The older daughter ends being responsible for the younger sister at a young age. The twists and turns of their lives are what the book is about. I would recommend the book. "

    " I read this because it was one of the kindle book deals. The story was poignant and beautiful although stilted at times. I could tell that this was Jennifer's first novel, but there are moments of brilliance. "
