Two sisters. One man. One obsession. Abigail Bennett is poised, confident, and successful—and convinced that nothing can shake the firm foundation she has constructed for herself. But when tragedy causes her orderly world to come crashing down, she becomes consumed by an unfamiliar motivation: revenge. Abigail walks away from her job, her apartment, her life, to track down the man she holds responsible. Racing toward an uncertain future, she finds herself revisiting her past, particularly her relationship with her troubled younger sister. Hailey—damaged, dangerously beautiful, and frighteningly volatile—seemed to take all the risks that Abigail avoided...until now. But soon Abigail realizes that forgiveness is the biggest risk of all. “Baart’s latest offering resounds with emotional and spiritual insight.” —Romantic Times, 4 stars! “A taut, engrossing story about familial love and redemption.” —Booklist “Tragic yet hinting at mercy and forgiveness...features engaging characters and will appeal to readers who have had to deal with difficult family relationships.” —Library Journal “An emotionally intense tale of two sisters...a poignant and gripping story.” —Publishers Weekly

Baart (Summer Snow) writes an emotionally intense tale of two sisters. Past and present alternate as the history of their family unfolds in order to explain their present circumstances. The present is largely set in a winery in British Columbia, where one of the sisters, Abigail Bennett, pursues Tyler Kamp, her sister Hailey's boyfriend. The vineyard offers opportunity for beautiful description and resonant imagery as the narrative unspools. Abigail is presented in painful, almost claustrophobic, detail as she deals with the central puzzle of her family and history. But some of the supporting characters, while intriguing, are slightly off-pitch. Hailey's boyfriend Tyler isn't presented fully enough, and winemaker Eli Dixon occasionally becomes more of a symbol than a character with a compelling back story. But Baart has exactly right the members and dynamics of the Bennett family, locked in the manic dance of mental illness. She tells a poignant and gripping story. (May)
