This book had a bit of a Maeve Binchey feel to it. Three sisters have not spoken for three years after a terrible row, and now are summoned home by their 80-year-old grandmother - a hoot of a woman - who is trying to get them to mend their canyon of a rift. Told by the three women, the story unfolds and you know that communication needs to happen but no one wants to be the first. Lots of hurt feelings, guilt, love, stubbornness, exasperation, and general sisters being sisters, but we get through all that. The slightly strange thing about this book is that there seem to be two stories one after the other, but still the book was a good summer read.
