What remains when a near-perfect house of bricks comes tumbling down?
MEET RENATA GUSTAFSON
Renata Gustafson Dixon’s life is going exactly the way she wants it. Almost. A wonderful husband, four boys who make her life oh-so-sweet and (almost) complete. She and John are giving things one last shot for the icing on the cake; a little girl with copper curls like John’s and cupid bow lips like Renata’s. Then Juliette, the oldest of the four Gustafson sisters, opens up a can of worms labeled “Angela Clinton” at a G-FOURce meeting, and things are said and accusations made that can’t be taken back. When tragedy strikes, sending Renata’s carefully-constructed world spinning out beyond her control, she must learn to set aside her own will and lean on the strength of those who love her before she loses all hope for the future.
MEET THE GUSTAFSON GIRLS
When Paul and Simone Gustafson are killed by a drunk driver, the lives of the Gustafson girls change irrevocably. Although raised by loving grandparents, it’s the G-FOURce—the Gustafson Four Sisters Club—that binds them together when their differences would tear them apart. All grown up now, Juliette has become the quintessential doormat, Renata, the self-appointed matriarchal figure. Phoebe is—according to Renata—borderline narcissistic, and Georgia is on the verge of a major identity crisis.
Then there’s Angela Clinton, the senior class darling who drove her cherry black 1970 el Camino into the side of their parents’ car on the night of Juliette’s high school graduation, leaving the girls orphans. Angela’s prison sentence is winding down; soon she’ll be eligible for parole and moving back to town. Will the G-FOURce be strong enough to hold the sisters together as they step into the eye of the storm that’s been brewing for the last fifteen years? Will they finally be able to let go of the past and embrace the future, no matter what it holds?
Note: The Gustafson Girls Sisters Series is Women’s Christian Fiction with strong elements of Romance.
