For generations, the Windsors have lived on the family’s grand estate in Crestwood, South Carolina, as intertwined with local life as sweet tea and pecan pie. Now, on the anniversary of her daughter Emily’s death, Sarabess Windsor believes she may be the last to carry the family name - unless she can find her second daughter, Trinity, who disappeared fifteen years ago. Trinity grew up as Trinity Henderson, adopted by the Windsor foreman and his wife. Trinity was conceived not out of love, but out of Sarabess’s desperate attempt to prolong Emily’s life by providing a bone marrow donor. On her fifteenth birthday, Trinity ran away and hasn’t been seen in Crestwood since. But the town has never forgotten her…especially not handsome lawyer Jake Forrest. And although Jake has no desire to help selfish Sarabess Windsor, the thought of seeing his childhood friend again fills a void in his heart that Jake didn’t even know existed. Trinity swore never to return to Crestwood. Not for the mother who callously abandoned her, not for the late father she hardly knew, not for the huge family trust she stands to inherit. But some ties - to a place, to a past, to the people we once were and dreams we once had - can never be fully broken. And as family secrets are revealed, and desires old and new come to light, Trinity may discover the one thing she never expected to find in Crestwood: a place to call home at last.

    " Cute, easy read that reflects upon small town life and gossip. I found myself laughing out loud at some points. Definitely a good beach book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joyce | 8/17/2010

    " Not really my type of book, but a very fast read and it is good to read a bit of fluff one in a while. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lora | 7/2/2010

    " An enjoyable story with much emphasis on family relations and tensions. The plot is somewhat predictable but interesting none the less. Having spent many years in Charleston made it extra fun. Having experience many family tensions of my own, I can relate. "

    " This is a nice summer read....it's a totally implausible story without much character development that would definitely be a Nicolas Spark-ish chick flick if turned into a movie. I liked it though. Cute love story, small town America, quick read. "
