Description

With the heart and humor of Fannie Flagg's Fried Green Tomatoes and Rebecca Wells's Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood, author Marci Henna introduces you to the Cranbournes-a mostly lovable and undoubtedly nutty family who've had more than their fair share of hard times. A beautiful blend of tears and laughter, When We Last Spoke tells the tale of sisters Juliet and Evangeline, who are dropped off by their Broadway-bound mother at their paternal grandparents' Texas ranch in 1967. After their cherished father is killed in Vietnam, the girls are orphaned. Still mourning their son's death, grandparents Walt and Ruby accept their role as guardians, only to be surprised soon after by another permanent houseguest's arrival-Walt's kooky mother, Itasca. Fast-forward to the present, where the warmhearted home in which the girls grew up is now just a faint memory. The estranged sisters are in need of a good dose of Walt's famous stargazing wisdom: "You've got to look real close. Pay attention to what's around you in this life. You're liable to miss something important if you don't." Packed with plenty of quirky characters and hilarious escapades, this must-read novel also digs in deep to the things that matter most-family, friends, love, and forgiveness.show more
