Three sisters, different from each other in every way, but these three girls were to stick together for life.
An engaging, witty and bittersweet story about family bonds, the search for love, and life in a country town at the beginning of the last century. From the bestselling author of Wonder Cruise and Youth at the Gate.
As in most families, the Walker sisters find they each have their role to play. Isabel is the “dutiful one”, who puts the needs of others before her own. Lilian is “the pretty one” whose beauty may not bring her what she wants most of all. Joyce is the “independent one”; her artistic dreams perhaps easier to achieve than her one other desire.
The three sisters choose different paths in their quest for happiness and fulfilment. But throughout the joys and tragedies of adulthood, they discover the strength of family ties in ways they could not have imagined.
