Abstract:

Even in a town as picturesque and rich in history as Oliver's Well there's something special about the Reynolds house on Honeysuckle Lane. Sturdy yet graceful, well-proportioned outside and within, it's where Andie, Emma, and Daniel Reynolds grew up, before they began to grow apart. For Danny, this first reunion since their mother's death is a chance for him and his sisters to relive cherished holiday traditions, attending the church concert, lighting the town tree, before finally settling their parents' estate. But readying the house for sale proves no easy task when every piece of furniture and every moment together stirs up the past. Andie, the oldest sibling, didn't just leave home years ago, she left her young daughter too. Though she's found fulfillment and fame as a self-help author, coming back shakes her equilibrium. How can she presume to guide others if she can't be honest with those closest to her, much less herself? Middle child Emma struck out on her own instead of accepting her father's offer to share his business. Yet now she finds herself drawn back to her town's quiet rhythms and routines, wondering if it's possible to start over. The house on Honeysuckle Lane contains a lifetime's worth of joys and dreams, and its share of regrets too. This Christmas, it will be the place where Andie, Emma, and Danny come together to remember, laugh, fight, plan and find their way forward as a family once more.
