As children, Molly, Lena and Tessa McBride witnessed their parents' murder-suicide. That life-changing moment shaped their future in unimaginable ways, but was unable to destroy the ties between them.
Molly chose a life of helping others through her work as a nun. But her determination to do good cannot prevent darkness from touching her life...or make her forget the man she secretly loves: her sister's husband.
Lena longs for intimacy, but fears again losing someone she loves--until she meets Dr. Reece Longworth. His belief in her makes her willing to try to open her heart again. But by the time she learns to love him, will it be too late?
Adopted as a baby, Tessa McBride remembers little of her sisters, but feels the effects of their parents' deaths as keenly. She seeks fame, but finds herself caught by a man whose promise of love comes with terrible consequences.
Ross (Southern Comforts) steps away from her usual murder-and-mayhem plot this time around with the credible, if somewhat soapy, tale about three sisters who are separated after the murder-suicide of their parents on Christmas Eve, 1972, in Los Angeles. Molly, the main protagonist, becomes a nun working as an ER nurse; Lena finds fulfillment as the wife of the caring Dr. Reese Longworth; and Tessa (Ross's trademark dysfunctional character) yearns for stardom but is instead caught up in Tinseltown's underworld of pills and prostitution. When a brutal rape leaves Molly pregnant and longing for motherhood, she begins to question her vows�"It occurred to me lately that what I believed to be a vocation was instead, a crutch." Lena's sudden death and Molly's growing attraction for Reese�the adoptive father of her child�reconfirm Molly's vocational uncertainty and bring her to a personal milestone in her life. Despite a few groaningly predictable moments, this is a steamy, fast-paced read. (July) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
