BlogHer Book Club, The Weird Sisters

Hi Guys! I have another book review for ya tonight. BlogHer sent me The Weird Sisters by Eleanor Brown to read and give my opinion on for the BlogHer Book Club.

Its about three sisters who come home to care for their mother who is going through breast cancer treatments. Rose, the older of the three, she is a homely Professor who's struggling to let go and believe in herself. She is engaged to a man who loves to travel and she prefers her hometown. She is having a hard time figuring out where she should be. Bianca or Bean as she is referred to throughout the book, is a high style attention seeker. Dreamed of New York as a girl and went there after college only to come home hiding from the dreamy expensive city. Cordelia, Cordy for short, is best labeled as a hippie. She is the baby, and often was given in to. She took up traveling and wandered the US until coming home, harboring her own secret-a pregnancy. All three girls have a hard time connecting and communicating with their parents. They speak in Shakespearean verse's, thanks to their father who is a professor of Shakespeare at the local college.

Now all three of them are home, faced with reality of 'growing up', and trying to figure out what in the world they are going to do.

I won't spoil the ending for ya ;) 

While getting into this book was sssllllloooowwwwww, I rather enjoyed it. It was fresh and light. The Author really lets you into the sisters heads. You really get a good sense of who you are reading about. I really like her style of writing, and look forward to more from her. Would love for another bokk with these charaters to come out, showing us more into their lives and how they are now. Hint Hint Mrs. Brown!

  1. I can related the characters in this book so much for a while I could have been reading about my own family. The sisters are not Weird.... they are human and just trying to find some proof that they matter. Who doesn't want to be the favorite and who doesn't feel left out at sometime in their life.
