The Sullivan Sisters by Kathryn Ormsbee
From the author of the Tash Hearts Tolstoy comes an introspective, atmospheric novel about sisterhood, coming-of-age, and learning that it’s never too late to reconnect with those you love.
Time changes things.
That painful fact of life couldn’t be truer for the Sullivan sisters. Once, they used to be close, sharing secrets inside homemade blanket castles. Now, life in the Sullivan house means closed doors and secrets left untold.
Fourteen-year-old Murphy, an aspiring magician, is shocked by the death of Siegfried, her pet turtle. Seventeen-year-old Claire is bound for better things than her Oregonian hometown—until she receives a crushing rejection from her dream college. And eighteen-year-old Eileen is nursing a growing addiction in the wake of life-altering news.
Then, days before Christmas, a letter arrives, informing the sisters of a dead uncle and an inheritance they knew nothing about. The news forces them to band together in the face of a sinister family mystery…and, possibly, murder.
The Sullivan Sisters is an unforgettable novel about the ghosts of the past, the power of connection, and the bonds of sisterhood.

Review of The Sullivan Sisters
Review (4.5 Stars): The Sullivan Sisters was an amazing story of sisterhood and self-discovery that I couldn’t get enough of. Each of the sisters had their own distinct personality but they had this wonderful bond that was unbreakable no matter what. You could see that each of them were facing their own demons but the idea of an inheritance and a family member they never knew brought them on a road trip that could change everything. The Sullivan Sisters is a story that you won’t forget so add it to your TBR today.
