Book Description:

Sisters Gracie and Juliette Bennett used to be the best of friends. But over the years, time and distance have worn the ties of sisterhood that once bound them together. Each has been following her own life's path, growing further apart.

When their beloved grandmother Mimi passes the Bennett sisters are set to inherit her house--the charming Santa Barbara Craftsman, a family heirloom three generations old.

But there's a catch: In order to inherit their home away from home Gracie and Juliette must live at 1402 Laguna Lane for one year...together.

Now, in an unexpected and peculiar way, their paths intertwine. Gracie and Juliette have a chance to come together and reexamine their relationship, perhaps even become the kinds of friends only sisters can be. Because as they'll learn over the course of the trying year ahead, Mimi's clever plan is about more than preserving a piece of family history.

Differences will be embraced, pasts confronted, loyalties tested, and secrets revealed. And in their darkest hours Gracie and Juliette will have to decide if a sister's love is what they need to get through the year. If a unique friendship between sisters is what they've needed all along.

My Book Review:

A Sister's Place by author Savannah Page is a lovely story about the bonds of sisterhood, and how a beloved grandmother's legacy takes a pair of sisters on a year long journey of rediscovering how special a sisterly relationship that they truly have.

I have enjoyed reading author Savannah Page's When Girlfriends ... series, so when I saw that she wrote a women's fiction story about the special bonds of sisterhood, I knew that I just had to read it. From the wonderful book cover, to the enticing book description, the author weaves a poignant tale that pulls at the heartstrings and stirs the soul, as the reader follows the year long emotional journey of self-discovery for sisters Gracie and Juliette Bennett.

When Grandma Mimi passes away and leaves the cherished Santa Barbara family home to the sisters, she has one stipulation: that Gracie and Juliette must live together in the house for one year. Grandma Mimi's last wishes forces the sisters to come together and embark on a journey to rekindle their relationship after years of distance had loosened their bonds of sisterhood. As the year long journey progresses, the reader follows along as the sisters share experiences and deal with trials and tribulations as they try to reestablish their relationship, facing the past, and embracing the present, in the hope of attaining the love, friendship, and restrengthening of the unique and special bonds that sisters share.

As an only child who lived vicariously through my Mom's relationship with her four sisters, I couldn't help but become captivated by Gracie and Juliette's story, and relate to the undeniable bonds that come with sisterhood. This is a story that all sisters should share and read together, whether you are blood sisters or sisters that are formed from friendships. There is nothing more special than a story that promotes the message of the importance of honoring the unique relationship bonds that are formed and strengthened between women, even with the struggles, challenges, disappointments, and accomplishments that come with the progression of an individual's path in life.

A Sister's Place is a touching story about sisters and family relationships that will take the reader on a sentimental journey where they will experience the full gamut of emotions, and leave them with a heartwarming feeling that will resonate with them for a long time.
