Thanks to NetGalley and Lake Union Publishing for an egalley in exchange for an honest review In her latest story Barbara O' Neal introduces us to four generations of women struggling against family betrayals and long buried secrets A story of mothers and daughters on the path to redemption forgiveness and growing into the person that you are meant to be At the head of the family is matriarch Lillian whose health is beginning to fail and becomes very upset when her caregiver goes missing Her granddaughter Zoe and her great granddaughter Isabel return from America to help Lillian For Zoe she has to come to terms with the trauma of what may have happened to her best friend face a ruined relationship and ultimately decide if she will forgive the mother who abandoned her at age 7 Teenaged Isabel is still trying to figure out how to tell her mother of the humiliation she carries with her every day Finally there is Poppy Zoe's mother who desperately wants her daughter to forgive her and allow a relationship with her granddaughter But has Poppy really understood how her past actions have hurt the people around her I thought this was a heartwarming contemporary novel and I felt that each character shared the narration well Although I must say Zoe was perhaps my least liked character because I felt her romance did get in the way of trying to figure out what happened to her friend and speaking with her mother Another thing that was very confusing was how O' Neal switches from referring to Zoe's love as Cooper for the first half of the novel and then switches to his first name Sage For a brief moment I was lost and asking Wait there are two men now she is chasing now Hahaha Overall the characters were well developed their individual stories were intriguing and there was enough dramatic effect to keep me interested #TheLostGirlsofDevon #NetGalleyPublication Date 140720Goodreads review 130720
