"An entertaining page-turner."--Kirkus on Met Her Match
An inspiring new family saga about two headstrong sisters who long to forge their own paths.
In the small farming community of Mason, Kansas, Vera and Kelly Exton are known for their ambitions. Vera is an activist who wants to join her boyfriend in the Peace Corps. But she is doing her duty caring for her widowed mother and younger sister until Kelly is firmly established. Kelly works for the local veterinarian and plans to marry her childhood sweetheart...as soon as he gets around to proposing.
Neither sister is entirely happy with the path that's been laid out for her. But it's 1972 and times are changing. As each evaluates her options, everything shifts. Do you do what's right for yourself or what others want? By having the courage to follow their hearts these women will change lives for the better and the effects will be felt by the generations that follow. Meant to Be delivers an emotional, smart, funny and wise lesson about the importance of being true to yourself.
