Publisher Description

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Two sisters must learn from each other’s strengths and trust in the redeeming power of love in a touching new novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Debbie Macomber.

The Lakey sisters are perfect opposites. After their mother died and their father was lost in grief, Willa had no choice but to raise her sister, Harper, and their brother, Lucas. Then, as an adult, she put her own life on hold to nurse Harper through a terrifying illness. Now that Harper is better and the sisters are living as roommates, Willa has realized her dream of running her own bakery and coffee shop, bringing her special brand of caretaking to the whole Oceanside community.

Harper, on the other hand, is always on the go. Overcoming a terrible illness has given her a new lease on life, and she does not intend to waste it. When Harper announces her plan to summit Mount Rainier, Willa fears she may be pushing herself too far. Harper, for her part, urges Willa to stop worrying and do something outside of her comfort zone—like taking a chance on love with a handsome new customer.  

Sean O’Malley is as charming as he is intriguing—a freelance photographer whose assignments take him to the ends of the earth. Soon Willa’s falling for him in a way that is both exciting and terrifying. But life has taught Willa to hedge her bets, and she wonders whether the potential heartache is worth the risk.  

Life has more challenges in store for them all. But both sisters will discover that even in the darkest moments, family is everything.

A hard book to read

If you are reeling from a death in the family, in particular a cancer death, pass on this one. It’s a good book, but very hard to read. Usually, a Debbie Macomber book is an automatic 2 thumbs up. I was actually glad to get to the end of this one. It’s an emotionally difficult read.

Beautifully Written

A beautifully written story about life and finding joy. The book chronicles the story of one family as they struggle with everyday life, love, and grief. Sad at times, but isn’t real life that way? It’s also about hope and regaining joy after tragedy through faith, understanding, patience, and love. Yes, it had a predictable ending, but it’s a book I couldn’t put down.

FAMILY BONDS!

Debbie Macomber has a reputation for writing novels that touch reader’s souls and A WALK ALONG THE BEACH is another perfect example! She introduces readers to the Lakeys, a family that has had its struggles. In spite of it all the three siblings are close, with sisters Willa and Harper still living as roommates. Willa feels protective after Harper’s near death bought with leukemia. Willa has always been the steady sibling; Harper has always been the thrill-seeker. Willa is always worried about Harper. Until Sean O’Malley gives her something else to think about! He seems perfect until Willa finds out he is a PhotoJournalist and his work often requires that he travel to remote areas for weeks or months at a time with no internet or cell service. Not so great when you think you have met the love of your life! Macomber keeps readers on the edge of their seat with this novel. It is a story of family, pain, loss, angst, forgiveness and love. I was provided a complimentary copy of this novel by Random House, LLC and NetGalley. The opinions expressed here are completely my own and without influence.
