Publisher's Summary

Celeste English and Ronnie Frazier are sisters, but they couldn't be more different. Celeste is a doctor's wife, living a perfect and elegant façade. But secretly, her marriage is falling apart and her need to control people around her threatens to destroy them all. Ronnie is an actress, living in New York. But she has no money, she has no home, and her life is held together by "chewing gum, paper clips, and spit." When their father dies, the sisters inherit a house in Prosper, North Carolina. Their mother, Della, would rather they forget about going there and dredging up the past. Neither of them suspect that their trip to Prosper will uncover decades-old secrets, family betrayals, and tangled relationships - or that it will make these two strangers realize that they are, and always will be, sisters.

Fantastic, Re-reading already!

If you could sum up Far From the Tree in three words, what would they be?

Fantastic, Great story-line.


What did you like best about this story?

A real page turner. The story draws you in.


What does Fran L. Washington bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

She reads well. Wasn't always sure which character was speaking at times, but a very small issue.


Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It's sad in places and had to get to the end to find out what was going on but I couldn't put it down.


Any additional comments?

Excellent read! Great writing. Would definitely read another book from these authors.
