NEW REVIEW: Keith Thomas Walker - The Finley Sisters' Oath of Romance
Keith Thomas Walker - The Finley Sisters' Oath of Romance - Available Now! - 4 out of 5 books -
rekindle their friendship from high school at their 10-year class reunion. Mona
Pratt has done well for herself since high school. She is the owner of her own
real estate company. Rene Packard has
done pretty well for herself as a sale executive for a major corporation. The
last member of the trio, Dawn Wright, has not done as well as her other
sisters. She works for minimum wage at the local dry cleaners in Overbrook Meadows,
TX, the town that the trio group up in. The one thing that the three have in common
is their issues with men. Mona has the philosophy of "love 'em and leave 'em" without feelings getting involved. On the other hand, Rene has been hurt by
love, and wants no part of it even though she has had an
"agreement" with the same guy for over 2 years. Dawn is staying in an
abusive relationship because she feels like no other man would want her because
she has gained weight and has 2 children by two different men. They are all a
mess! So when they reunite at their 10 year class reunion, they decide to take
a cruise together and rekindle their friendship. Their cruise was about
repairing relationship, self reflection, and looking toward the future. It's
not going to be smooth sailing to get to where they want to be, but the Finley
Sisters know that this is one wave they want to ride all the way to the end.
The Finley Sisters' Oath of Romance by Keith Thomas Walker was a good read. This is the third
book I have read by Walker, and once again he does a fantastic job with plot and
character development. He seamlessly weaves three stories into one book while
keeping the story flowing. The Finley
Sisters' Oath of Romance causes you to reminisce about your high school
days and wonder about those people you haven't kept in touch with. It also
helps renew your hope that time and distance doesn't affect true friendship.
