Spotlight and Giveaway: The Sisters of Summit Avenue

Today we're pleased to feature The Sisters of Summit Avenue by Lynn Cullen. It publishes on September 10th from Gallery, who has THREE copies for some lucky readers!

Ruth has been single-handedly raising four young daughters and running her family’s Indiana farm for eight long years, ever since her husband, John, fell into a comatose state, infected by the infamous “sleeping sickness” devastating families across the country. If only she could trade places with her older sister, June, who is the envy of everyone she meets: blonde and beautiful, married to a wealthy doctor, living in a mansion in St. Paul. And June has a coveted job, too, as one of “the Bettys,” the perky recipe developers who populate General Mills’ famous Betty Crocker test kitchens. But these gilded trappings hide sorrows: she has borne no children. And the man she used to love more than anything belongs to Ruth.

When the two sisters reluctantly reunite after a long estrangement, June’s bitterness about her sister’s betrayal sets into motion a confrontation that’s been years in the making. And their mother, Dorothy, who’s brought the two of them together, has her own dark secrets, which might blow up the fragile peace she hopes to restore between her daughters.

An emotional journey of redemption, inner strength, and the ties that bind families together, for better or worse, The Sisters of Summit Avenue is a heartfelt love letter to mothers, daughters, and sisters everywhere.

I remember a TV show with sisters in it and I watched it every week it was called Brothers & Sisters starring Sally Field, big fan of that show. Thanks for this amazing chance.

I liked the show called Sisters. It was in the mid 90's or perhaps a bit earlier. It had Sela Ward in it as one of the four sisters. It was supposed to have taken place in the Chicago suburb of Winnetka (a town where I grew up).
