2011 book 25

Eleanor Brown's The Weird Sisters
When their mother is diagnosed with cancer, three sisters--responsible Rose, beautiful and troubled Bianca, and flaky Cordelia, the daughters of a Shakespeare-quoting professor who named his daughters after the Bard's characters--return home, though all have various crises they're hiding from as well. I will say that this didn't turn out to be as predictable as I'd expected, but I was a bit taken aback by all the churchiness of the end. I've read a few positive early reviews and none mentioned all the churching. This falls more on the women's lit side than the literary fiction side, I guess, which isn't my usual bag. B.
