About the Book:

Sometimes the happiness we’re looking for has been there all along…

Adele and Justine have never been close. Born twenty years apart, Justine was already an adult when Addie was born. The sisters love each other but they don’t really know each other.

When Addie dropped out of university to care for their ailing parents, Justine, a successful lawyer, covered the expenses. It was the best arrangement at the time but now that their parents are gone, the future has changed dramatically for both women.

Addie had great plans for her life but has been worn down by the pressures of being a caregiver and doesn’t know how to live for herself. And Justine’s success has come at a price. Her marriage is falling apart despite her best efforts.

Neither woman knows how to start life over but both realize they can and must support each other the way only sisters can. Together they find the strength to accept their failures and overcome their challenges. Happiness is within reach, if only they have the courage to fight for it.

Set in the stunning coastal town of Half Moon Bay, California, Robyn Carr’s new novel examines the joys of sisterhood and the importance of embracing change.

My Review:
Sunrise on Half Moon Bay looks like it may be the beginning of another heartwarming series by an author I have grown to love!  Two sisters, born twenty years apart and living totally different lives, grow closer during dramatic changes in their lives.  The younger sister, Addie, has put her life on hold in order to care for her elderly parents.  The older sister, Justine, lives a comfortable life as an attorney with a husband who stays home to care for the house and their girls.  When both girls find themselves in situations they hadn't planned on, they come together and grow as individuals. This is a book about second chances, finding ones inner strength, and dealing with what life has handed to you.  And it's a story about the bond between sisters, no matter how far apart their ages may be.

The beginning of the book dragged a bit, but once things started falling into place, I couldn't put it down.
