Dear Carolina After sixty years of marriage and five daughters, Lynn "Lovey" White knows that all of us, from time to time, need to use our little white lies. Her granddaughter, Annabelle, on the other hand, is as truthful as they come. She always does the right thing--that is, until she dumps her hedge fund manager fiance and marries a musician she has known for three days. After all, her grandparents, who fell in love at first sight, have shared a lifetime of happiness, even through her grandfather's declining health. But when Annabelle's world starts to collapse around her, she discovers that nothing about her picture-perfect family is as it seems. And Lovey has to decide whether one more lie will make or break the ones she loves ..

I ended my review of "Dear Carolina" also by Kristy Woodson Harvey with:

"2 stars. I have "Lies and Other Acts of Love", which Kristy Woodson Harvey wrote after "Dear Carolina", checked out of the library but frankly I'm not sure I'm going to waste my time with it."

I DID read "Lies and Other Acts of Love" and I'm glad I did. I found I didn't want to put it down, with the joy, the heartache, the little - and not so little - secrets slowly, gently - and not so gently! - revealing themselves. There was much just so real about the characters. I particularly enjoyed the counterpoint between Grandmother Lovey and granddaughter Annabelle, the differences of living in different times, yet the sameness of love and hardship that sometimes comes with it that is enduring.

The middle of Annabelle's story shocked me - I didn't see that coming but the end of Lovey's story did not.

All in all, a wonderful story, and again, I'm glad I gave it the chance it so rightly deserves.
