Sunrise on Half Moon Bay

Sometimes the happiness we’re looking for has been there all along…

Adele and Justine have never been close. Born twenty years apart, Justine was already an adult when Addie was born. The sisters love each other but they don’t really know each other.

When Addie dropped out of university to care for their ailing parents, Justine, a successful lawyer, covered the expenses. It was the best arrangement at the time but now that their parents are gone, the future has changed dramatically for both women.

Addie had great plans for her life but has been worn down by the pressures of being a caregiver and doesn’t know how to live for herself. And Justine’s success has come at a price. Her marriage is falling apart despite her best efforts.

Neither woman knows how to start life over but both realize they can and must support each other the way only sisters can. Together they find the strength to accept their failures and overcome their challenges. Happiness is within reach, if only they have the courage to fight for it.

My Thoughts…

I love stories about sisters, especially sister who have not always seen eye to eye but still love and support each other.    Addie and Justine have a large age difference between them.   They didn’t bond over late nights, gossip about boys, fight over bedrooms, or who gets to shower first.   They were still sisters who love each other.

Yet, at the same time they both had to start their lives over.    Justine’s marriage fell apart and their parents, who Addie had been taken care of, passed away.   They both had to find a way to make their new lives happy and they came together as sisters to make that happen for them both. The strength and love the sister’s showed each other and those around them made me want them to find their new happiness.   They were both strong, successful, and loving ladies that took the rough turns in life and let them guide them to find new ways to become better people.   They also showed Justine’s daughters that even when life knocks you down you get back up and keep going.   Justine and Addie are great role models. 

Sunrise on Half Moon Bay is a strong story with powerful women and a sweet story.  I recommend picking up your copy.
