This is a hard book to rate for me. On one hand, I thought it was really good. Hannah does a super job of making you feel the emotions the characters are experiencing, at familiarizing you to the settings and the motivations of the story and just simply making you FEEL. Whether it be sadness, anger, love or disgust you get to crawl into some of the characters lives and see the story through their perspective. That part of the book I loved. On the other hand is the mechanics of the story. How she [...]

I read this book in four days. I couldn't put it down. I just wanted to know what was going to happen. This is when you really know a book is good when it's a page turner. Anyway, this book is about three sisters trying to stay together as a family. The dad is always drinking and basically hating his life after his wife died. The three sisters are trying to make their way in life and get torn apart but certain events that happen along the way. Eventually they reunite but there is tension still b [...]

I was so disappointed. I had saved this book thinking I would have a lovely time reading. I have read a lot of her books, and always enjoyed them. The relationships between the three sisters are interesting, and not real relationships. They are very flat and unnatural. There were instances where the book is so stilted with the development of some characters, I wouldn't want to read further. I got depressed the further I read, and I kept hoping that the story would get better. There are many ends [...]

One may wonder why a reader would rate a book so low and still read it. I guess I read the book because I decided not to waste my money. (That's best reason I can come up with.) I've never read Kristin Hannah before, so I picked this book up because it was cheap at Costco, and because I decided I needed a bit of light, chick-lit reading as a change of pace. I found myself almost groaning sometimes during the story because the writing was so dull. The author's attempt at character development for [...]

I listened to this as an unabridged audio book. Kristin Hannah has written some charming historical romances in the past which is why I was tempted to pick this up but I’m really under whelmed with this women’s fiction/chick lit/soap opera venture. Where’s the charm? Never mind that, where’s the love? All I’m reading here is bitterness and jealousy and awkward relationships. It’s making me edgy and impatient. The book is about three sisters whose mom died of cancer when they were ver [...]

Three and a half stars.This is a story of three sisters - Winona, Aurora and Vivi Ann Grey. For all of her life Winona has sought and not received her father’s approval. Her aim is to try and make him see her worth. As the middle sister Aurora mostly tries to be the peacemaker between Winona and Vivi Ann. Jealousy, is the big problem for Winona since Vivi Ann, the youngest, is also the golden haired one who is beautiful and seems to get everything she wants. When that includes Luke, Winona’s [...]

UnbelievableKristin never failse is such an amazing author! I can't recommend this book high enoughwhat a beautiful story. I couldn't read it fast enough and I didn't want it to endWOW The characters in this book are so real I felt they were part of my family. The dynamics in personality, depth of feeling and emotion, picturesque descriptions of town, home, and country, the twists and turns of what happens to them, the surprises, the hardships, and joy in one another's life's, the real-life fami [...]

Well, here is another book that has been on TBR for longer than 2 years. I was so happy when I got this book from the library. I couldn't believe that I forgot about reading True Colors but I am happy that I finally did. Also why the hell did it take me so freaking long to get a library card?!? I didn't get one until 2017 (I wont name which month I finally got one because it's just super sad that it took me so freaking long to get a card)Now this is my first book ever written by Kristin Hannah a [...]

I started out really liking this book, and stayed pretty riveted throughout the first half. But after a while, it just started to wear on me.True Colors is the story of 3 sisters in a small town in Washington as they try to keep their family ranch afloat, find love, and live their lives. Ultimately, none of the characters in the book was terribly likable. Two of the sisters in particular both came off incredibly self-absorbed. Their love-hate relationship, particularly as it dragged out for deca [...]

Prva zamjerka ide II dijelu romana koji je prilično razvučen i manje uzbudljiv od I. Druga zamjerka ide sestrama koje su sušta suprotnost jedna drugoj, Vivi Ann je za moj ukus previše tvrdoglava, Winnona se previše žali na debljinu i svako malo ispoljava svoju ljubomoru, a Aurora nije do kraja izgrađen lik koji se pojavljuje u momentima kada neko treba smiriti situaciju; propast njenog braka nije ni opisana, već samo spomenuta u par rečenica. Naravno, tu je i otac zbog kojeg sam poželj [...]

I really enjoyed this one! I love Kristin Hannah's books.I know when I chose to read a book written by her I am going to read a wonderful story filled with likable characters. That is exactly what I got with this book. This is a story about 3 sisters who are all very close until an event tears them apart. I could feel all the emotions and heartbreak that they were going through. This was sad at times but a great story. Highly recommend.Thank you to St. Martin's Press for a free copy in exchange [...]

This book is an excellent example of why, sometimes, I keep reading when I don't like a book. Granted, I had read this author before, and therefore was willing to give her the benefit of the doubt based on previous enjoyment. But I'm glad I didn't miss out on an enjoyable read.True Colors is about the Grey sisters, who lose their mother to cancer when the oldest is 15. We skip forward over a decade. Winona, the oldest, is an embittered, fat spinster. The middle child, Aurora, is married with two [...]

Although this story of the Grey sisters (a ranching family in Washington state) is solidly in the chick lit genre, author Kristin Hannah does take on a topic that resonates with today’s headlines. Following on from her storyline, she includes a character (Dallas Raintree), who marries one of the Grey sisters and later becomes false accused and sentenced for the crime of murder.Before that contemporary twist to the story, however, the novel centers on the relationships of the three Grey sisters [...]

Get out your tissues, you are going to need them.Wednesday I had a flight to Seattle and back and since it was such a short day I decided I could do without a book and just do work things. Well as often occurs at the airport flights are delayed and other things occur, so I ended up with 5 hours on my hands.The first three hours I did alright but then I was bored out of my mind so I headed to the closest book stand. I browsed for close to half an hour narrowing down my choice to two books. In the [...]

Some have described this story as "chick-lit" but, in my opinion, it couldn't be further from that genre. It's not an easy story with simple, likable characters. You'll go back and forth about these sisters throughout the book, which I think is the strength of the writing. The beginning is sketchy about all of the characters but they become more vivid as the story unfolds. There's tragedy, resilience, romance and heartbreak but through it all, I felt like the characters were responding realistic [...]

Don't bother. I'd have given it one star, but that would have made me feel a bit guilty, because it did hold my attention enough to finish it. I felt like I was reading a Harlequin Romance book, complete with the stereotypical Perfect Sister, the Chubby Smart Sister, the Beautiful Wild Sister and the Indian Who Scares The White People. This is my first Kristin Hannah book, and I've had friends recommend her. Maybe it's a bit like Jodi Piccoult, you either love her or you don't. It just felt lik [...]

I've read most of Kristin Hannah's books for a reason. I get thoroughly involved in her stories! I find her characters to be human and the dialogue believable. I felt connected and involved with the people in True Colors. I cared what happened to them and I cried along with them. I know for a fact that horses can help a person through the darkest of times. The author captured that type of healing bond beautifully. The sisters had their rough spots and true love and devotion was tested, but it al [...]

I loved this book! I have read some great stories recently and I have had some difficulty in finding stories that grip me, keep me interested and that I can love. I probably should have known to turn to the author who wrote the book that will forever remain one of my favouritesThe Nightingale by Kristin Hannah! I read this book within 24 hours! I would recommend this book.

Gosto da escrita da autora e este foi dos melhores que li dela.Uma história simples, um amor verdadeiro, personagens fortes tudo para dar un livro que me agarrou do princípio ao fim.Aconselho :)

Probably up it to 2.5 starsd I will say it definitely improved after a major twist in the middle. But by that point, i was frustrated with it, the uninspired writing, and the cliched characters--so after the first 100 pages, I skimmed. The story focuses on 3 sisters on a ranch in the West, with an emotionally unavailable rancher father (who's pretty much a douche all the way through) and a mother dead from cancer when the girls are young. The fat oldest sister can't please her father, the middle [...]

I normally really enjoy Kristin Hannah's work, but this one just didn't grab me. I think it was the lack of sympathetic main characters. It seemed like the sisters were whiney, self-serving, and were constantly reminding themselves that "sisters trump men." It didn't help, obviously. I could see the plot line coming from a mile away, and there were several inconsistencies in the story. For instance, Vivi Ann works with a group of pre-teen 4H'ers. One of the girls' mother is one of Vivi Ann's chi [...]

"Onu hala seviyor musun?""Dallas ile senin arandakiyle kıyaslanırsa" Söyleyecek söz bulamayınca omuz silkti.Ablasının koluna dokunarak, "Bu bir yarış değil," dedi Vivi Ann. "Aşk sadece aşk işte."3,5/5🌟🌟🌟Yazardan okuduğum sekizinci kitabında herkesin dediği gibi artık bir zamandan sonra benzer konular üzerine kalemini eline aldığına katılıyorum. Bu kitapta Kızkardeşler Arasında ile Gece Yolu'ndan tutamlar alınıp çok da uzak olmayan bir kurguyla meydana gelmi [...]

What a neat novel True Colors by Kristin Hannah is! It starts off following the lives of three sisters from when their mother died while they were teens. Aurora is the peace maker who settled for marriage to “Mr. Boring” while the eldest daughter, Winona, an attorney, loves her younger sister’s fiancé and longs for her father’s approval. Vivi Ann, is engaged to a real nice guy, but isn’t in love with him and follows her heart and passion when Dallas, the new ranch hand shows an intere [...]

What an incredible story! I think that this book is every bit as good as Firefly Lane! The three sisters go through so much in this story! Each of them have their own struggles, but the fact that they remain true to each other is amazing. Yes, there are fall-outs that last for a while, but in the end, they all come back to each other. They look upon themselves for what a mother and father would give them. My heart went out to Vivi Ann. When she fell in love with Dallas, she fell hard! But her st [...]

Overall, I thought this was a good read. It started out a bit slow, but when Dallas Raintree came to town, the story picked up quite a bit and I could not put it down. My only complaint is that I wanted Aurora’s character to be developed more. I thought the author did a good job with Winona and Viva Ann, but I didn’t feel as connected with Aurora as I did the other two.The book begins in 1979 shortly after their mother's passing. It spans almost three decades and we see how her death still i [...]

True Colors by Kristin Hannah ~ Wow at first I was reading this and thinking to myself, well Kristin has gone all "Romance Novel" on us and all I could picture were those cheesy Fabio book covers. And in a matter of a few more chapters it got REALLY good!!! I know a book is good when I am sitting at work reading it and I have to gather myself to answer the phone because I am boo hooing! This is such a great love story based on the lives of 3 sisters and the men that come and go. There is so much [...]

5/5 starsThis was so good, my fucking heart. Dallas. One thing I truly love about Kristin Hannah's books are that the blurb gives you just enough to know what but god the plot's are always so different and so damn good.

Some stories have such a strong, promising beginning that any lapse in quality just seems impossible, and the idea of growing bored is equally unlikely. But it happened. This book let me down right away.Like I said, this book began as a promising read. The introduction of the three sisters in their early teens, struggling with the death of their mother and sudden emotional absence of their father was interesting. I wished it was longer, actually, because I wanted to read more about their ordeals [...]

This novel is about relationships between the Grey sisters, Winona, Aurora, and Vivi Ann. Wynona is an overweight lawyer who never married, and never felt acceptance from her father. Aurora, the middle sister is the peacemaker and tries to keep everyone together. Vivi Ann is the beautiful, talented youngest sister and her father's favorite. The girls' mother died when they were young, and they are raised by their father Henry, who runs a horse ranch and is only concerned about how the community [...]
