True Colors is New York Times bestselling author Kristin Hannah's most provocative, compelling, and heart-wrenching story yet. With the luminous writing and unforgettable characters that are her trademarks, she tells the story of three sisters whose once-solid world is broken apart by jealousy, betrayal, and the kind of passion that rarely comes along.

The Grey sisters have always been close. After their mother's death, the girls banded together, becoming best friends. Their stern, disapproving father cares less about his children than about his reputation. To Henry Grey, appearances are everything, and years later, he still demands that his daughters reflect his standing in the community.

Winona, the oldest, needs her father's approval most of all. An overweight bookworm who never felt at home on the sprawling horse ranch that has been in her family for three generations, she knows that she doesn't have the qualities her father values. But as the best lawyer in town, she's determined to someday find a way to prove her worth to him.

Aurora, the middle sister, is the family peacemaker. She brokers every dispute and tries to keep them all happy, even as she hides her own secret pain.

Vivi Ann is the undisputed star of the family. A stunningly beautiful dreamer with a heart as big as the ocean in front of her house, she is adored by all who know her. Everything comes easily for Vivi Ann, until a stranger comes to town. . . .

In a matter of moments, everything will change. The Grey sisters will be pitted against one another in ways that none could have imagined. Loyalties will be tested and secrets revealed, and a terrible, shocking crime will shatter both their family and their beloved town.

With breathtaking pace and penetrating emotional insight, True Colors is an unforgettable novel about sisters, rivalry, forgiveness, redemption---and ultimately, what it means to be a family.


  • Good read

    Good book but slow in the middle.
  • Beautiful story

    By Eminem rocks 8mile
    The story was beautifully told. It did feel a little slow at times and gave the reader this feeling like we’re waiting for something even bigger to happen or some bigger, shocking “a ha moment” which never really comes. However, once you give in to just enjoying the beauty of the sisterhood woven into the story, it’s a very enjoyable read.
  • One of Kristin Hannah’s Best!!

    Heartwrenchingly beautiful and shows that we are all imperfect beings making mistakes in judgements and being willing to make things right. Sisters love and unyielding devotion challenged through the decades. Amazing storytelling from a poetic writer.

    I loved this book! Great characters, a marvelous story, a great lesson about families supporting and forgiving each other, plus an excellent interwoven description of living out West on the Land. The crazy Justice system in this country was also exposed. Everyone should read this. Thanks
