In Hurry Home, Alex is surprised by a visit from her sister, Ruth, whom she hasn’t seen in ten years. Alex definitely isn’t happy to see her, when she has caused so much trouble in the past and especially when she finds out Ruth’s pregnant. She decides to let her stay, if for no other reason than to protect the baby, as long as Ruth promises not to ever discuss the past. It is hard to keep the past buried and as the months wear on, pieces begin to come out. Lies and secrets abound and those closest to these two sisters will have to unravel the web and discover which sister is telling lies. After the safety of a child is at stake.
I hammered this book in a couple of hours, it was that good. You start off thinking one sister is in the right, but as the story progresses you begin to question everything and put the pieces together. Chase and Sully, who are minor characters at first, begin to push through and have more influence on the decision in the end than it seemed they would at the start. This was a fantastic read that sucks you into family drama and the lies we tell each other and ourselves thinking we are protecting those we care about. The amount of manipulation one sister employed was incredible in order for her to get what she wanted. I highly recommend you add this book to your summer read list.
