What happens when three very different sisters move back home with their ailing mother and Shakespeare-scholar father? Well, it’s messy, complicated, and frustrating: as one of the sisters says, “See, we love each other. We just don’t like each other very much.” But it’s also enlightening and, ultimately, healing.
Rose, the responsible oldest sister, can’t decide whether to give up her comfortable life to take a chance on excitment. Bean has a guilty secret. And Cordy, the free-spirited baby of the family, is realizing that maybe it’s finally time to grow up.
This tale is a real treat for book lovers – no matter how dysfunctional the family, at least they share a common love for books, the Bard, and an unofficial family motto: There’s no problem a library card can’t solve.
