La promo du moment
Frances Simpson and Libba Charles had nothing in common. Sweet and modest, the picture of a Southern lady, Frances possessed all the poise and grace that brash northerner Libba did not. But thrust together by chance in the fall of 1947 as freshman roommates, Frances and Libba formed an indelible bond of friendship that lasted for over forty-six years.
Frances’s three grown daughters want as little to do with each other as they do with Libba, the woman who dominated their mother’s attention and affections for their entire lives. But when their mother, on her deathbed, makes them swear to “look after Libba,” they feel they have no choice—especially after Libba summons them to their mother’s summer cabin in North Carolina.
Once they arrive in the Blue Ridge Mountains, Libba begins to reveal a tale of secrets and betrayals, promises and resentments the girls never knew. And, as long-hidden confidences are finally brought to light, Frances’s daughters will discover heartbreaking and powerful truths about themselves, their mother, and the nature of sisterhood, in this wise, emotional tale by the award-winning author of How Close We Come and The Last of Something.
