True Colors by Kristin Hannah

The Grey sisters had only each other when their mother died. Their father provided for them physically on Water's Edge, the ranch that had been in their family for three generations, but he was emotionally absent. Growing up, the Grey sisters longed for love. Winona, an overweight dreamer, knew that she could never get it -- she didn't have the talents and strengths her father valued. Vivi Ann did. But when Vivi Ann makes a fateful decision to follow her heart, rather than take the route of dutiful daughter, events are set in motion that will test the love and loyalty of sisterhood.

A story that I could not stop reading, couldn't wait to see what would happen next!
