I received this book to review through Beck Valley Books Book Tours, all the opinions above are 100% my own.
This book really intrigued me from the get go. The synopsis really drew me in and I couldn’t wait to see what happened within the book. This heartbreaking but beautiful tale of two sisters and the pact they made when they were young. Now they are older and have lived their lives – got married, had children – was it simply just a silly pact?
This is an emotional book with complex characters and it had be both laughing and crying in places. I loved the characters of Louise, Jeannie and Bernice and finding out how they have changed over the years despite that pact not to live past eighty all those years ago. I thoroughly believed in their setting and in the characters and their emotions. Another great offering from Kim Cano.
