Ashley Farley is explanative in her prose, so I could keep up with the happenings of the past. But in this book, being the last, the characters are pretty set in their ways. They move with an air of don't you already know me from the previous books? An already known feeling pervades the pages. Maybe that's one of the reasons, I couldn't feel their emotions. I didn't know them; they were strangers to me.
The story goes thus, the seafood store goes up in a fire, the sisters are at a loss, both in their livelihood and the plans of a future for themselves and the children. There are crisis abound, health issues of their mother Lovie, with child problems in elder sister Jackie's life, middle sister, Sam having lost her entire means of living in the shop fire, the younger sister, Faith being stalked by a criminal ex. All this makes the book a series of happenings.
I wouldn't say I loved the sisters and that I want to be a part of Sweeney Sisters, I certainly don't. I couldn't feel the bond between them. The real emotions between sisters felt lacklustre in this. Maybe being the final book, I am already supposed to feel their love from the previous books. The sisters have lot of untold hidden secrets, which keep on getting solved as the pages turned. I couldn't find that closeness, which sisters normally share even during the problems.
The core of this final book, the vein that threads through its pages is never stop living, never stop dreaming, never get scared in starting a new life, whatever be the age. And this point resonated deep within me, as it stands true in my life too, especially while standing in the cross roads of life.
Maybe one day I would go back and read the series in order, to fall in love with the Sweeney Sisters.

This author is an amazing book writer. She knows how to capture our attention and keep it. Even though it is an easy read, it makes you think about your life, life of your friends and family. This is a story about life of a family and all they go through.
This was the last book in the series, if you haven't read the other books, I think you too will fall in love with the characters. She ended the series so there was no wondering, everything was answered, and like life, I feel they are friends who have gone someplace else.
This book has followed my path. Just this past year I moved in with my 90year mum with dementia. It was just her and I for nine months, be cause my three sisters were to busy to help me. And just like Faith said, we had very few conversations, but what we did have NO ONE CANE EVER TAKE FROM ME
Thank you for turning my last days into a story that I could honestly relate to every step of the way.
Please don't let this be the last of the Sweeney Sisters. I don't have many friends and I love being invited into their lives
This was a book I will read again and again thank you
Thank you Ashley Farley for your wonderful story writing! I look for ward to more stories from you!
