My Turn
A Nash Sister’s Novel

You could call 1954 the year of storms. Three hurricanes, including the fierce Hurricane Hazel, struck the East Coast. But there were other kinds of storms that year that pulled on homes and families. The Nash family foundation was cracking. In this third book about the Nash sisters, it is time for family members to take on new roles. Some are more surprisingly than others. Things change. The bonds need to be shored up. Will a family gathering do the trick?

Each book about the Nash family can be read as a standalone book, but there is something to be said for experiencing these well-developed characters as they grow across the decades. Step in for a good read. The fourth Nash sister’s book, The Kooler, is in the making!
