What a great book. It is really one of those kind of books where you say, hmm I wonder if everyone has secrets like this family had. A family who doesn't really talk through their issues, the Claybourne women are all hurting, but they just do not know how to move forward.
Secrets, affairs, alcoholism, are just many of the things that are hurting this family. I was drawn into this story from page one. Anise, the stepmother of the family, has a personality that makes me wish she was my best friend. She is a nurturer and a peace maker. I enjoyed this story great and am happy I was given the chance to review it. 4 stars.

Review for Waiting for Sunrise
Cedar Key has long been a place of rest, healing, and release in the
Claybourne family. But it might also be the birthplace of a lie that is
poisoning the family from within. Join the strong Claybourne women—Anise,
Kimberly, Jayme-Leigh, Heather, and Ami—as they each confront the truth.
Their unique paths will lead them through heartbreak, misunderstandings,
and pain. But their journeys will also bring reconciliation with each other and
renewed love in their own lives.
In her lyrical, evocative fashion, Eva Marie Everson weaves a tapestry of
complicated relationships that, when complete, reveals the most beautiful
work of art there is—family.
