LoveReading View on We Are Family

Back in the beginning these two friends decided to create a genre and write alternating chapters from each character’s point of view, giving a unique take on young emotions in one book. Come Again was the outcome. The media adored the whole thing and then Josie and Emlyn fell in love. Ah! It was a fairytale in itself. Five books and two daughters later their joint work has got deeper, more mature and moving. They and their books are a delight.

We Are Family Synopsis

In affairs of the heart, how far can family loyalties be stretched before they snap? When an aunt she never knew existed phones Laurie Vale out of the blue, she soon discovers that everything she ever believed about her family is a lie. Fifty years earlier, in the idyllic coastal village of Stepmouth, a forbidden love affair and a devastating flood drove the Vale family apart, but now her aunt is determined that Laurie should know the truth. Laurie escapes to the balmy warmth of Majorca only to find the hopes and passions buried in the past resurfacing in the present. But the more she seeks to heal old wounds, the more she becomes ensnared in a complex love affair of her own. One that could destroy her family for good.
