Now and Then Friends: A Hartley- by-The-Sea Novel by Kate Hewitt- Spotlight and Feature

The USA Today bestselling author of Rainy Day Sisters returns to Hartley-by-the-Sea...
Childhood best friends Rachel Campbell and Claire West have not only grown up, but after fifteen years, they've also grown apart...
After her father left, Rachel had to dedicate her life to managing her household: her two younger sisters, her disabled mother, and her three-year-old nephew. When Rachel’s not struggling to look after all of them, she makes her living cleaning the houses of wealthy families—inclulding the Wests, where a surprise now awaits her. . . .

A lifetime of drifting in other people's currents has finally left Claire high and dry. First it was her parents, then the popular crowd in school, and finally her fiancĂ©. Now she’s returned to Hartley-by-the-Sea to recover. But running into Rachel brings back memories of past mistakes, and Claire wonders if she now has the courage to make them right.

Soon Claire’s brother, Andrew, asks Rachel to keep an eye on Claire, which is the last thing either woman wants. But as their lives threaten to fall apart, both Claire and Rachel begin to realize what they need most is a friend. The kind of friend they once were to each other, and perhaps can be again. . . .
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Now and Then Friends ( A Hartley-By-The-Sea Novel) by Kate Hewitt is a NAL publication

This well balanced, emotional drama touches on class differences, family loyalties and responsibilities, love and friendship. Although Rachel and Claire couldn’t have come from more diverse backgrounds, they shared a common bond that proved to be unbreakable. The long held resentment between the women fall away as they lift one another up, cheer each other on, listen to one another’s problems, and learn acceptance and forgiveness can heal old wounds and strengthen the foundation that is already in place.
