After a tragic accident on Martha’s Vineyard, keeping secrets becomes a way of life for the Tangle family. With memories locked away, the sisters take divergent paths. Callie disappears, Mimi keeps so busy she has no time to think, and Ginger develops a lifelong aversion to risk that threatens the relationships she holds most dear.
When a whispered comment overheard by her rebellious teenage daughter forces Ginger to reveal a long-held family secret, the Tangles’ carefully constructed web of lies begins to unravel. Upon the death of Glory, the family’s colorful matriarch, and the return of long-estranged Callie, Ginger resolves to return to Martha’s Vineyard and piece together what really happened on that calamitous day when a shadow fell over four sun-kissed siblings playing at the shore. Along with Ginger’s newfound understanding come the keys to reconciliation: with her mother, with her sisters, and with her daughter.
At turns heartbreaking, humorous, and hopeful, Sisters One, Two, Three explores not only the consequences of secrets—even secrets kept out of love—but also the courage it takes to speak the truth, to forgive, and to let go.
Review: I'm a sucker for family dramas. Wow was this one of them. The Tangle family are probably the most dysfunctional family I've read about (or even known).
Ginger and her family are messed up and their messed upness (Yup I'm making up words) is a result of an accident that happened a long time ago.
That's really all that you can say.
When you start going back through time in the story and see the family you really see that they were messed up even before the accident that claims one of them.
I wasn't a fan of Glory. I hate mothers that just are...well icky and unpleasant, and that pretty much sums up Glory, except in the present you feel sorry for her as dementia is taking her mind.
This story was powerful and a real page turner. I find that with all families that have "BIG" problems, I have to find out if things work out for them; if they can be fixed. The Tangle family definitely needs fixing. (Their last name is so appropriate)
