Publisher's Summary

From the author of The Campaign and No Rules of Engagement...

Pamela Wright will never forgive her sister for dying in the Afghanistan war or the army for Laura's death or anyone else for making it okay for Laura to go halfway around the world to fight for reasons Pam has never fathomed. Numb with grief, she buries her sister but not her rage. Among the mourners is Trish Tomlinson, who loved Laura long ago and has found the news of Laura's death sharply painful. She remembers Pam as an unwelcome third wheel but now finds comfort in the company of the young medical resident and in the details of Laura's journal that Pam shares.

Brought together by grief, something more grows. Guilt and anger cloud their feelings and jeopardize any chance at a future. How can love blossom in the shadow of death?

Sister, Sister

As with Melissa Brayden's How Sweet it is an older sister dies and her partner soon hooks up with the little sister of her woman; one who still carries the remnants of a childhood crush.
In this case Dr. Laura Wright is killed in a helicopter crash in Afghanistan. Her younger sister Dr. Pam Wright returns to their hometown of Ann Arbor, Mi. for the memorial service and there she's reunited with her sister's first love Trish Tomlinson and away we go again.
Pamela's crush which has basically been kept alive by her childhood memories for twenty years is resuscitated but so is Trish's attitude towards Pam as her girlfriend's little sister, will Trish's attitude ever change and if so will it work out for them?
By consensus this one ended up getting a 5 star rating from the cadre; though if possible I would have rated it at 4.2 to 4.4. There were a few jarring turns and inconsistencies in the narrative that left me scratching my head. The story itself was quite stirring emotionally and the Afghanistan scenes feel real. The manner in which the protagonists came together felt forced and unrealistic however the conclusion was excellent.
Still I can only wish that those plot twists that elongated the story needlessly had been avoided and the narrative would have been allowed to proceed without all the excess drama.

Absolutely fantastic story and narration

Wonderful character development of three women's lives intermingled through the years. For those who do not have any experience of family or friends in the military it opens a window into their perspective of life. The tension between characters is believable. The narration I thought was perfect for this story. Listened to it three times.

Loved it!

Enjoyed everything about it, except that I would have preferred a slightly greater differentiation between the voices of Pam and Trish.

A bit to real.

great story, it's a bit to real for being fiction. I enjoyed it. I like fiction to be more uplifting. outside of my preferences, this is a great listen.

Tough, Tender, Touching

This is only the 2nd Story I have reviewed:

This story is one that all should hear. The story delivers a wonderful look at life, love and lasting memories that is bound to touch all that should travel through it.

The narrator did excellent in providing a vivid picture of the emotion tied to this wonderful story.

Please listen you won’t regret it.

Laura,Laura, Laura

If it weren’t for Laura’s untimely Death, Pam & Trisha would’ve gotten together. Thanks for giving us readers the Glowing Light of a Second Chance to get it RIGHT! O well off to the next adventure.

Left me feeling melancholy!

I have enjoyed Tracey Richardson’s books and this was no different however because of the theme it left me feeling melancholy even up to and including the epilogue for the lost life of Laura. Felt like I went on the journey with them so must have been a good book but felt drained and thoughtful after.
