Slow to get in to, but great exploration of emotions and plot!

I truly enjoyed this book and was sorry when it ended. I have two sisters myself (much larger age gap) and appreciated the interactions between the three of them especially since they have taken their own roads in life. The scenery/background is superb and I could almost feel the early morning mist.

Delinsky is a guilty pleasure for me. I like her way more than I ought to. This story of three sisters being "forced" to reconcile their lifelong differences because their mother manipulats them one last time by the simple expedient of not showing up is simply delicious. By focusing their anger on their mother, whom they've been taught was perfect, but with whom each has their own issues, forces them to deal with their own issues with each other. Very real sister story, I though. Leah and Jesse were a bit over the top, except as a reminder of where their mother had been decades before, and what she truly had given up for their happiness when they were not even born yet. Not a great book, but a worthwhile, fun one.
