Five Miles South of Peculiar by Angela Hunt
Chase Caldwell left Sycamores to his descendants in an unusual way: they were allowed to keep the place for 50 years, but then it would go to the county. Fast forward 44 years, and Sycamores is now the home of Darlene Caldwell Young and her sister, Nolie. The two sisters have weathered a lot of heart ache in the family home, but things are about to come out in the open when their Broadway star sister, Carlene, comes home for a visit.
It took me a while to get into this book, since the characters seemed a bit unusual and hard to relate to. Once I got into it though, I found the story line interesting and well worth it!
