[the weird sisters.]


The Weird SistersThe Weird Sisters by Eleanor Brown
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

i really couldn't decide whether to give this book three or four stars so i decided that since i was even having doubts, it must not deserve four and i settled on three. if three and a half had been an option, i might've landed there.

i've always liked books that are about other books, or reading, or people who like to read... you get the idea. this was one of those stories. it's about three sisters, all very different personality-wise, but alike in that they're all avid readers and were named after characters in shakespeare's plays. their father was a professor and could hardly complete a sentence without throwing in a shakespeare quote, and the girls inherited his love of literature.

the adult daughters are all drawn back to their hometown to care for their sick mother, and while they're back in the house they grew up in, they end up finding a piece of themselves that they'd lost along the road of life. it's a sweet story about family, about sisters, and about finding where you truly belong. i have to admit, it made me weepy more than once.

... ok, i'm back to four stars.

final answer.
