Pittman has created a touching historical romance with an interesting storyline. Readers may relate to the close bond that the sisters have with one another. But the plot feels lost at times, with the introduction of too many characters. In the end, though, it gives an uplifting message about trusting in God.
Vada Allenhouse took on the responsibility of raising her three sisters when her mother disappeared. Now a grown woman, she spends her days working at the local orchestra and her evenings with Garrison, her boring and predictable boyfriend. When a visiting baseball team ends up needing the help of her father, who is a doctor, Vada and her sisters find themselves with several romantic suitors. The opportunities that arise change all of their lives. (MULTNOMAH, Apr., 352 pp., $13.99)
