Robyn Carr, author of “Sunrise on Half Moon Bay” has written an entertaining, captivating and memorable novel. The Genres for this novel are Domestic Fiction, Fiction, and Romance. The timeline for this story is in the present and goes to the past when it pertains to the characters or events. The author describes her characters as complex and complicated. This is a wonderful and thought-provoking story about sisters, and family that I would highly recommend.
Justine and Addie are sisters with a huge age difference between them. Justine has a family, and works as an attorney in a very busy practice. Her husband basically stays at home with their girls. Addie has dropped out of school and wasn’t able to complete her master’s degree. Addie was the caretaker for both parents for 8 years. After their deaths, Addie has conflicts with what she can do.
Justine now is facing certain domestic and career adjustments, and she and Addie realize they both have to change their lifestyles. This is the first opportunity both sisters have to communicate and perhaps support each other.
I appreciate that the author discusses important topics such as family, friends, emotional support, love and hope. I enjoyed this thought-provoking novel.
