But when Diane dies in a car accident, Mary discovers the motel is worth less than the back taxes they owe. With few options, Mary's finely tuned instincts for survival kick in. As the sisters begin a cross-country journey in search of a better life, she will stop at nothing to protect Hannah. But Mary wants to protect herself, too, for the secrets she promised she would never tellbut now may be forced to revealhold the weight of unbearable loss. Vivid and suspenseful, The Sisters Chase is a whirlwind story about the extreme lengths one family will go to findand hold ontolove.
