Three Sisters is a brilliantly crafted, touching, character-driven novel. Each page captured my attention and hijacked my heart. The author brings the reader deeply into the lives and hearts of three women who are emotionally broken and in the middle of a personal crisis.
After being left at the altar, Dr. Andi Gordan decided to abandon her life in Seattle and move to Blackberry Island. She bought a severely neglected, Queen Anne home to renovate. It would serve as her home, her healing and her pediatric office.
Boston King’s marriage is crumbling. Her heart died months ago, right along with her baby. Although Boston’s artistic skills are in demand, she hasn’t been able to draw anything but pictures of her dead son. She’s a shell of the person that she used to be.
Deanna Phillips feels desperate. Her husband wants to end their marriage; her oldest daughter hates her, and her younger daughters are afraid of her. Deanna thought that being perfect was a good thing, now she knows it’s not. Her OCD and rigidity are out of control as well as her self-harming behaviors.
Susan Mallery captures the essence of her flawed characters, perfectly. Every page is brought to life for the reader with razor sharp details and raw emotion. Although I felt each woman’s heart-wrenching pain, I also felt their love, hope, and joy. I rejoiced with each character as they began to heal and become whole once again. Truly, this is one of the best books that I have read this year. It’s touching, powerful, and immensely satisfying. Don’t miss it.
