One mother. Two daughters. One favorite. One not.
When Cassie Barclay is presented with an opportunity – or is it a curse – she jumps at the chance. She takes on a new life, her sister’s life, and although at first, it holds appeal and promise, she soon realizes sometimes the fairy tale is tainted.
Assuming the name of Tessa, Cassie moves into the life that was her sister’s, and faces first one realization then another, one disappointment after another. Stepping into Connie’s life does not automatically grant her all that Connie had or was. But it does deny all that she had and was as Cassie. As herself.
THE FIRST LINE:
Tessa flopped onto the divan, more worn and weary in her thirty-seven years than the faded and threadbare divan in its 137 years. What will I tell the others, she moaned to herself, too weary even to weep at the events of the past thirteen days.
Hmmm, not sure how to quantify my thoughts – reaction to my book. The more of it I wrote, the more vested I became in the story. I know I’m the author but I loved this story. She’s my first book baby and that alone took me to a whole new level of understanding and reading [my] characters.
I can’t rate it – I wrote it! But if I did, I’d give her five stars! 😉
