This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
Twin sisters Waverly and Charlie Talbot have drifted far apart as they pursue opposite dreams of stardom and service to the poor. Now they must come together to face their fears, find their courage, and fight for what they love.
Celebrity chef Waverly Talbot has built a successful career with her home-entertaining show Simply Perfect. Yet she and her husband, Andrew, have never been able to realize the true desire of Waverly’s heart: to become a mother. Meanwhile Waverly’s twin sister, Charlie, buries her bitter disappointment and shattered idealism beneath a life spent serving others as an international aid worker in Budapest, Hungary.
When the beloved aunt who raised them passes away, Waverly and Charlie come together in their grief after living years on separate continents. Struck by a fierce desire to bridge the distance between them, Charlie offers Waverly and her husband the selfless gift of surrogacy.
But soon the sisters find they are each in danger of losing their jobs, seemingly putting their dreams on hold once again. When Waverly shows up unannounced in Budapest with a plan to rescue Simply Perfect, the sisters embark on an adventure across central Europe that could save them both from occupational hazards. Though the twins haven’t had to rely on each other since childhood, a dramatic turn in their journey forces them to stand together to save their careers, the baby, and each other.
BECOMING THE TALBOT SISTERS
Twin sisters, yet so different, their choices for careers are different. Yet, thru all that they are two women, who have lived separate lives, come together after a death of an aunt. The bond is once again strengthen with the thought they may lose their jobs. Traveling thru Europe, they must find the courage to fight for what they want. A slow paced story that is easy to relax and just enjoy. Not a lot about Waverly husband and his thoughts.
Readers won’t be disappointed, in a story rekindling a bond of love, that is unique, with twins. GivenARC by Thomas Nelson for my voluntary review and my honest opinion.
