Publisher Description

This is the "delightful" (People) New York Times bestseller that's earned raves from Sarah Blake, Helen Simonson, and reviewers everywhere-the story of three sisters who love each other, but just don't happen to like each other very much...
Three sisters have returned to their childhood home, reuniting the eccentric Andreas family. Here, books are a passion (there is no problem a library card can't solve) and TV is something other people watch. Their father-a professor of Shakespeare who speaks almost exclusively in verse-named them after the Bard's heroines. It's a lot to live up to.

The sisters have a hard time communicating with their parents and their lovers, but especially with one another. What can the shy homebody eldest sister, the fast-living middle child, and the bohemian youngest sibling have in common? Only that none has found life to be what was expected; and now, faced with their parents' frailty and their own personal disappointments, not even a book can solve what ails them...

Self-proclaimed Weird Sister

My mom handed me the book with a promise of parallels in our "weird" family. The author did an excellent job of providing a voice for the individuals and the sisters as one mind. Reminiscent of Kingsolver's Poisonwood Bible. I'm not sure exactly which sister(s) I identify with, but I think each of us can find a piece of herself here, and maybe even one we're proud of...

The Youngest weird sis

You either know these people or you are one. The love,jealousy,adoration and distain all live side by side,just like the sisters do. Good read...well done.

Good Read

Thought this ended abruptly. Otherwise I loved the multiple person view of the book as well as the well placed quotes. Extremely enjoyable read.
