It is just a silly child’s game, played in the twilight hour between daytime and nighttime. Someone is IT, and everyone else runs to hide. When the searching begins, each hidden child has a chance to run “home” to touch base and be free. If the running child is captured by IT, then that child is the next one to do the search.
Home is always a place where you can be yourself, where you are accepted, where memories of a lifetime are made. Three sisters--Cassie, Karen and Nicole--are as close as sisters can be. Cassie, the oldest, has always been their father’s favorite. Cassie is the smart one, the talented one, the creative one, but
with one simple decision, Cassie becomes the disappointing one. Cassie’s parents refuse to let her see Duke because they believe he is the wrong guy for her. Duke encourages Cassie to leave her home and run away with him to marry him, now that she is pregnant. Cassie’s decision to choose Duke over her family will change her life forever.
Karen is the second-oldest sister, happily married to a stable, generous man and the mother of two children. Karen has always known that Cassie was their father’s favorite, even when Cassie didn’t know it. It was clear the summer that Cassie’s piano teacher suggested that her parents buy her a piano so that she could practice at home and strengthen her talent at the keyboard. Cassie’s mom said there was no money in the budget for a piano, but somehow Cassie’s dad found a way and bought the piano. Nothing was too good for Cassie. Although Karen has always felt very competitive toward Cassie, she is beginning to think that maybe she has judged Cassie too harshly.
Nicole, the baby of the family, doesn't remember much of her childhood with her older sister. She does remember the night Cassie left and what she believes made Cassie leave. She has carried that burden with her for all these years. Now it is time to see where the future can take these three sisters and whether or not they can find their way back home.
