Completely absorbed in the wreckage of her own life that has smashed her family and catapulted

her into panic attacks, Sarah Wingate flees to her childhood home in Oregon and her older sister,

Julia. Sarah’s plan, suggested by her psychiatrist, is to rest and regain her balance emotionally after

the failure of her marriage, recover from her panic attacks, and then return to California to put together

a home for herself and her children.

When she arrives at the old ranch she finds Julia, as usual, reserved and apparently strong. Julia, she recalls, was always the ‘good sister’ when they were children, and she, Sarah, was the impulsive, irresponsible ‘bad sister’. Julia welcomes Sarah, who settles in for her ‘rest’, even though at the outset she begins to feel uneasy as she sees odd, unexplained things about the old family ranch. She recognizes that returning to the old house will bring back terrible memories of her bizarre and unstable parents. Since they are both dead now, however, Sarah feels she should be able to recover unhindered by those memories.
In the end Sarah realizes that the strong ‘good sister’ she thought to lean on was in desperate

need of nurturing, and discovers new-found strength and purpose in herself. She has met, in Newman McCoyne, a man with whom she is ready to put together a new life for herself and her children and Julia.

Meet the Author

Louise Moeri's family hit the Oregon Trail before the ruts were deep and the path well-traveled.
Like other families, Louise’s family went in search of a better life in the early days of the westward expansion from the East and settled first in the Williamette Valley, then drawn to expand again to Eastern Oregon where many of Louise's stories harken back to.
From her first published work of Star Mother’s Youngest Child, an original fable beloved by many as a traditional Christmas story, follow the journey of King David as he works to save his sister Queen of Sheba who actively resists being saved in Save Queen of Sheba, a story pulled right from the family history book. Set in the same era, 12 year old Wart faced with rescuing the horses that their old mare has helped to escape in Devil in ol' Rosie. Amid dangerous terrain and mountain lions he must prove to his Ma and Pa and to himself, he must survive and successfully bring the horses home. Selected for a Pen West Literary Award, The 43rd War tells the stirring story of children in unending war-torn country of Central America and how it affects their lives.

Two of her novels, The Good Sister is riveting and, Chemo Club, based on her true life experiences with a diagnosis of cancer. The family dream lives on with the pioneer spirit alive and well in Louise Moeri's life and books.

    A Wonderfully Written And Gripping Story

    I have to say that I was really impressed with this book. The author does a great job of detailing things so you can really paint a picture in your mind. The story follows the journey one sister takes while concealing a huge secret from her sister. The story jumps right into things and doesn't waste time. The story has several plot twists and really portrays the struggle one sister has from withholding a secret from her sister. The book is easy to read and understand, and once you pick it up, you won't want to put it down until you finish it. I enjoyed reading it and I'm sure that you will as well.
