A Walk Along the Beach
By: Debbie Macomber
Rating: 5 of 5
While this was an excellent book, it was difficult for me to read. It touched on one of the most tragic areas of my own life. A little more than twenty years ago, my son was stricken with an aggressive form of leukemia and passed away eighteen months later.
In this story, we follow the life of Willa Lakey, who is the older sister of Harper. Harper is in remission after struggling, dreadfully, with chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant after being diagnosed with leukemia.
Harper is finding her feet again but Willa can’t help from hovering over her and watching her like a hawk. Willa has devoted her life to Harper and to opening her coffee shop when Sean O’Malley comes into her life.
