Both girls face their challenges together until Stephanie’s lie surfaces. Will Diana be able to forgive her and find a new faith in God?
About the author- Lisa Williams Kline currently lives in North Carolina with her husband. She has grown daughters. Some of her stories have been in Cricket, Cicada, Spider, and Odyssey. She is an editor, writer, and English teacher.
My thoughts- This is the fourth book of the Sisters in All Seasons series. After reading this book I want to read the other books as well as the final book coming out later this year.
I was surprised at the number of step-families in this story. The main characters are stepsisters and there are others mentioned too. This was one of the first times I had read a book like this.
I enjoyed having the perspective of both Stephanie and Diana by alternating chapters. It was nice to have different perspectives, because I learned more about all the characters. Diana needs a lot of guidance which was more noticeable by the different perspectives. I was glad she was able to succeed with her feelings and viewpoints.
I would recommend this book to all young teen girls. It is worth the read.
