The Weird SistersThe Weird Sisters by Eleanor Brown

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Three sisters come back to their family home, ostensibly to take care of their mother who's been diagnosed with the breast cancer. But, in reality, they have all sort of failed to find their proper ways in the world. Growing up with a Shakespearean scholar as a father, the girls, each named for a Shakespeare character, have in some ways followed the paths and the characteristics of their namesakes. Coming together helps each of them grow in her own way.

This is not the usual kind of thing I read, but I enjoyed it quite a bit. The characters are strongly realized and there is some beautiful writing in the book. Recommended.
