Four sisters, torn apart by time and secrets. Can they mend the broken fences that separate them? When their father divorced their mother ten years ago, while she was in the early stages of cancer, the Michaels sisters were torn apart. Sharon, much like their mother, with an accepting, forgiving heart, and youngest sister, Helen, a fledgling actress driven by self-interest, live and work on their dad's Friesian horse ranch in norther California. Kathy has struggled with insecurities, with men and while developing her first video game in San Diego. And Patti has nursed her mother all those years to her eventual passing. After their mother's tension-filled funeral, which their father has the nerve to attend, Patti and Kathy begrudgingly accept his invitation to come to the ranch for a weekend. Patti and Kathy have no idea what awaits them at the ranch house they once called home. There's much the girls don't know, about their father, their parents' divorce, and their scheming baby sister. And what is driving Patti in her sudden plans to seek revenge against a long-ago boyfriend? Can the sisters find it in their hearts to forgive and mend the broken fences that separate them, or will old transgressions keep them apart forever? ..".. the author successfully pulls out all the literary stops when it comes to crafting an emotionally compelling tale about love, family, and second chances that is guaranteed to tug at the heart." John Charles about Patricia Yager Delagrange's Maddy's Phoenix for Reader to Reader.
Born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, Patricia attended St. Mary's College, studied her junior year at the University of Madrid, received a B.A. in Spanish at UC Santa Barbara, then went on to earn a Master's degree in Education at Oregon State University. She lives with her husband and two teenage children in Alameda, across the bay from San Francisco, along with two very large chocolate labs, Annabella and Jack. No stranger to heartache, Patricia draws on her experiences to write deeply emotional stories about women who triumph over life's greatest challenges--the loss of a child, an unfaithful husband, adoption, death of a spouse, child kidnapping, and spousal abuse. When riding her magnificent Friesian horse, Maximus, Patricia plots her novels and resolves plot problems while enjoying the million dollar view of the Oakland hills where he is stabled. Her greatest desire is to see the running of the ponies near Chincoteague Island in Accomack County, Virginia, which has been going on since 1925.
