As elderly women, sisters Twiss and Milly live alone in the house where they grew up in Spring Green, Wis. They spend their days tending to injured birds and roaming their land, lost in memories.

Twiss spent her childhood happily trailing behind their golf-pro father, but Milly dreamed about a family and children that never happened.

I was really only intermittently interested in this book, and I don't think I'll remember a thing about it in six weeks. There were some nicely written scenes, but the book as a whole is unremarkable. ( )

Won ARC from Firstreads.

Great book about two sisters. The time switches back and forth between modern times and 1947. Specifically one day in the present and the summer of 1947 when Milly and Twiss received a visit from their cousin Bett and their lives were forever changed. The two girls and their very different reactions to situations reminded me a lot of myself and my sister. I am like Milly, retreating from conflict by baking/cooking/reading, while my sister is much more like Twiss who goes to the barn and hammers nails into boards to deal with various situations. I loved these sisters and will definitely keep an eye out for this author and her future works!

A good novel about aged sisters looking back on their lives and the choices and sacrifices they've made. ( )

I thought this was excellent. I agree with some other reviewers: it is incredibly depressing. However, the writing and the story make up for it and there is a current of hope throughout the novel. The surprising twists were enjoyable and the characters (mainly the two sisters) were heartwarming. ( )
