We have the different perspectives of the three sisters as they meet and process their conflicts. All three are at a crossroads, and having sisters to help them through has really made a difference. Serenity has other younger sisters, but they were caught up in their own problems. Reagan and Lorelei are eager to know more about how she grew up, what her life was like before they all got together, and help her however they can. Because their lives had all been so very different, they also have different perspectives and offer them up to the other women to help.

It's a summer of self-discovery as well as a sisterhood, and women supporting women through terrible times is a great theme in this novel.
