I am an avid reader, and I am always up for a good book. When I got the opportunity to read When We Last Spoke and review it, I was ecstatic! If you want to know more about this book, and my thoughts on it, just keep on reading!
About When We Last Spoke (from the back cover):
“Humor, heartbreak, and triumph are served with whipped cream and lots of local nuts in this heartwarming tale of family, friendship, and forgiveness in Fireside, Texas.
Meet Juliet Cranbourne, local radio personality and owner of a whimsical kitchen gadget store, and her sister Evangeline, a fruit tree geneticist who works for Oregon State University.
When a rift due to their orphaned past affects their sisterhood, Juliet convinces Evangeline to come home for Christmas and choose headstones to honor grandparents Walt (a tenderhearted, good looking rancher) and Ruby (a blue-ribbon fiddler, fabulous cook, and expert in the art of making family feel loved). As they cruise through Fireside in Ruby’s Thunderbird, Juliet hopes that healing memories will somehow smooth rough roads ahead.
Does the tremendous love that marked Walt and Ruby’s lives still have the power to renew their sisterhood and help them find their place in the world?”

About the author:

Where to buy:
There is nothing like grandparents. I know that I loved (and still do!) all of my grandparents, and losing them was tough. Juliet and Evangeline have went through a lot of tough times in their lives. Hopefully the bond of their grandparents can help their relationship. I relate to their issues, as I am estranged from my own sister. This book was great reading, and has inspired me. This book has given me hope that someday I will be able to heal my own relationship with my sister. The story line was well laid out, and it wasn’t difficult to read or keep interest in. I like that there were more than 300 pages, as I feel that it lets me stay in the story much longer than a shorter book. I honestly feel that this book is great reading for anyone.
