Synopsis: The #1 New York Times bestselling author of the worldwide phenomenon Calendar Girl series brings readers a poignant and honest look at life’s most complicated relationships.
When their mother passed away, Evie Ross and her sister were each given a stack of letters, one to be opened every year on their birthday; letters their free-spirited mother hoped would inspire and guide them through adulthood. But although Evie has made a successful career, her desire for the stability and security she never had from her parents has meant she’s never experienced the best life has to offer. But the discovery of more letters hidden in a safe-deposit box points to secrets her mother held close, and possibly a new way for Evie to think about her family, her heart and her dreams. (Synopsis from Goodreads)
My Thoughts: This was a very sweet story. Very poignant. It's a book about sisters, mothers, and family. I also really enjoyed the Native American aspects of the story too. Evie is a girl who has some struggles about what people see when they look at her. She's half Native American, but no one could really tell by looking at her. I enjoyed that discussion in this story.
Evie and her sister had a different childhood when it came to their parents. Their mom was free spirited and wanted to travel and see the world. Their dad was a military man and duty called. Evie and Suda were left with their grandparents to grown up on a Reservation. After their mom dies, she has them open letters every year on their birthdays. It's an interesting way to get to know a little about their mom since she wasn't around much when they were growing up. The letters offer advice. It's sweet and sad.
I liked the sister aspect of this book. There is no one like a sister to love and annoy you, all in the same package.
I also really enjoyed the romance that was in here. It was cute. Evie has always had a crush and now things are working out.
This is the sequel to What the Heart Wants. I didn't necessarily know that when going in, but I don't feel like it hurt me to read it out of order.
I enjoyed this book and story. I liked watching Evie's journey. It was a sweet book.
