Publisher's Summary

Nearly 25 years ago, Kathleen Halloran’s brother drowned during the last summer they ever spent with their grandmother on a remote island off Maine’s coast. Like a siren’s call she can’t resist, Kathleen is pulled back to Little Sister Island. She leaves her job and her girlfriend, packs up her few belongings, and moves into her grandmother’s cottage. 

Molly Cooper loves life on Little Sister, where the islanders take care of their own. Kathleen Halloran doesn’t belong here, and her arrival stirs up unwelcome memories for the islanders - including Molly’s brother. Molly is certain Kathleen will pack up at the first big blow. When she doesn’t, Molly begins to see maybe there’s more to Kathleen than she thought. Sometimes, before you can move forward, you have to look back.

Great story!!

I absolutely fell in love with this story. The quirks and customs of the people on Little Sister Island made me want to move there ,LOL. The narrator did a great job with several different places. I especially love the Irish accents. This is my first book from this author, and it definitely won’t be my last.

Wonderful storytelling!

Fascinating story...Beaufully drawn characters, convincing tale — I was moved by the island's story and its inhabitants (and their stories). I’m anxious to hear more from this storyteller!

WOW!

I loved When The Stars Sang. such a moving book. A great story of love, friendship and what screwed up parents inflict on their children. Ann Etter did a great job with the narration.
