When life makes waves for three neighbors on an island off the Seattle coast, the strangers must learn to become each other’s life raft, or be pulled into a whirlpool of family tragedy and romantic turmoil.
After Andi Gordon is jilted at the altar, she makes the most impetuous decision of her life—buying one of the famed Queen Anne houses on Blackberry Island known as the Three Sisters. Now the proud owner of the ugly duckling of the trio, she plans to open her own pediatric office on the first floor, just as soon as her hunky contractor completes renovations. Andi’s new future may be coming together, but in truth she’s just as badly in need of a major renovation as her house.
In the next house, Deanna Phillips confronts her husband about a suspected affair and opens up a Pandora’s Box of unhappiness. He claims she is the problem; the terrible thing is that he’s right. In her quest to be the perfect woman, she’s lost herself, and she’s in danger of losing her entire family if things don’t change.
Next door, artist Boston King thought she and her college sweetheart would be married forever. Their passion for one another has always seemed indestructible. But after tragedy tears them apart, she’s not so sure. Now it’s time for them to move forward, with or without one another.
Thrown together by fate and geography, and bound by the strongest of friendships, these three women will discover what they’re really made of: laughter, tears, love and all.
