The Tangle family, two parents and four kids, live in New Jersey, in a modest cape with three bedrooms and a small patch of lawn, dad mows every Saturday. Thirteen year-old, Ginger is the oldest, Mimi is known for her Shirley Temple dimples, 8-year old Charlie is blessed with gorgeous eyelashes and the youngest Callie, has a delightful smile.
Life is pretty simple. Dad, Solly works for an overstock company and matriarch, Glory dreams about how it all would be different, if she’d become a stage star. Now she entertains herself doing jigsaw puzzles of places she wants to visit. One summer, the Tangles go on very rare vacation.
After a tragic accident on Martha’s Vineyard, keeping secrets becomes a way of life for the Tangle family. When they get older, with memories tightly locked away, the sisters take very different paths. Callie disappears, Mimi keeps so busy she has no time to think, and Ginger is always so worried something bad is going to happen, that she almost loses her family, the relationships she holds most dear. After Ginger’s daughter, Julia overhears her mother reveal a long-held family secret everything changes.
Nancy Star is known for writing complex and compelling stories about family relationships. SISTERS ONE, TWO, THREE is no different. Once I started reading, I was drawn into the characters and their emotions. Some were universal and easy to content with, others took time to digest. Speaking the truth and receiving truth is not easy for these characters. It’s been said, “you are as sick as your secrets” and the Tangles need time to heal. I love stories about women, particularly mothers and daughters and sisters. SISTERS ONE, TWO, THREE is about love and witty at times, but also explores how we can learn to forgive and let go.
