Overview

This is the "delightful" (People) New York Times bestseller that’s earned raves from Sarah Blake, Helen Simonson, and reviewers everywhere-the story of three sisters who love each other, but just don’t happen to like each other very much…

Three sisters have returned to their childhood home, reuniting the eccentric Andreas family. Here, books are a passion (there is no problem a library card can’t solve) and TV is something other people watch. Their father-a professor of Shakespeare who speaks almost exclusively in verse-named them after the Bard’s heroines. It’s a lot to live up to.

The sisters have a hard time communicating with their parents and their lovers, but especially with one another. What can the shy homebody eldest sister, the fast-living middle child, and the bohemian youngest sibling have in common? Only that none has found life to be what was expected; and now, faced with their parents’ frailty and their own personal disappointments, not even a book can solve what ails them…

Praise

"Brown writes sweetly of the transition so many adults struggle to make before their parents’ eyes, from children to caretakers themselves."
– -The Cleveland Plain Dealer
"Irresistible."
– -The Boston Globe
"Lovely…This novel should appeal to Shakespeare lovers, bibliophiles, fans of novels in academic settings, and stories of sisterhood. The narration is a creative and original blending of the three ‘Weird Sisters’ as one."
– -Library Journal
