Another wonderful story by Faith Hogan, full of family drama where from the first few pages you get a feel for the relationship the sisters once held and what had happened in the intervening years.
Whilst on the front of it the sisters seem to have all picked a lane for their lives where they have carved out a path, the reality is very different and they are all lonely in their own right yet too stubborn to speak up and make contact with eachother.
When their father dies, all of the old drama resurfaces as the sisters return to Ireland for his funeral and for the will to be read, where they discover the latest wish from their father.
This was a story full of intense family relationships with each sister bringing their own point of view to the table as they are trying hard to keep secrets hidden from eachother. I loved how each sister was described, so you could get to know them and see how they influenced the story and how they all came to be in the position they found themselves in.
Another wonderful read, from an author who I am always keen to pick up a book by.
Three estranged sisters. Six months to come back together.
When Georgie, Iris and Nola’s mother died and their father disappeared into his grief, the sisters made a pact: they would always be there for one another, no matter what.Now, decades later, they haven’t spoken for years and can barely stand to be in the same room. As his health declines, their father comes up with a plan to bring them back to one another. In his will, he states that before they can claim their inheritance, they must spend six months living together in their childhood home in the village of Ballycove, Ireland, and try to repair their broken relationships. As the months progress, old resentments boil over, new secrets threaten to come out and each sister must decide what matters more: their pride, or their family. Can they overcome their past and find a way to love each other once more?
