I loved the household that these three sisters grew up in where their parents were madly in love; where there dad was a Shakespeare professor so it was all Shakespeare all the time; where reading was a passion of all the household members. All three sisters return to their childhood home as they are grappling with each of their own adult issues and they rally around their mother who has cancer. Coming home is a growth time for them. The book is amazing in that it is written in the "voice" of all three of the women. This took a while to get used to--maybe because I just kept asking myself, "who is narrating?" but it was an unusual and fantastic way of relaying the story. A great read!
