Sinéad Moriarty's heart-warming seventh novel, Me and My Sisters, is the story of how three sisters discover that when the chips are down, no-one will be there for you in quite the same way as a sister who knows you better than you know yourself.
It mixes the worldly wit of Jane Green with the down-to-earth insight of Marian Keyes in a story that will have readers thinking again about just how important their sisters are to them. Or wishing they had sisters if they don't.
There's more than one way of being a modern woman, not that the Devlin sisters would admit it ...
Harassed mum Julie used to be the easy-going one, but now she is struggling to keep sane. She needs support, but how could her sisters understand? After all, their lives are perfect.
One drunken mistake is jeopardising everything lawyer Louise has worked so hard for. For a control freak like her, being out of control is terrifying. Despite herself, she too needs her sisters.
And gorgeous Sophie's perfect designer lifestyle is falling apart at the seams. She can hardly bring herself to tell the other two the trouble she's in.
The Devlin sisters think they have little in common. They might just be in for some big surprises ...
