Gus Hollister owes all his success to his feisty grandmother, Rose, and her two sisters, Iris and Violet. They raised him, sent him to the best schools, and helped him start his own accounting business. Rose even bought the house Gus lives in with his wife, Elaine.
Now, Gus stands to lose everything–his home, his car, and his business. Worse, he’s alienated his beloved grandma, who tried to warn him about Elaine’s greedy ways. Heartsick and remorseful, Gus returns to Rose’s Virginia farmhouse. But it won’t be easy to make amends. Yet family and forgiveness go hand in hand, and Gus isn’t giving up. Because no matter how daunting starting over can be, the results can surpass your wildest expectations–especially when the Blossom sisters are in your corner…

I’m not sure how I managed to miss The Blossom Sisters on its debut a few years ago but I’m sorry I waited for the re-release. Though, I have to admit, I don’tknow that I would have been impacted as much by it then.
This story is about Gus overcoming his wife’s treachery but it’s more about Gus finally opening his eyes and accepting himself and his family.
I really like Gus and Barney. They are two of the nicest, most genuine guys I’ve ever met. They’re the kind of men I want for my daughter.
As for Elaine, she’s awful. I can’t remember ever detesting a character as much as her!
