Description

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.

From Publishers Weekly

Nov 21, 2016 – Star (Carpool Diem) crafts a moving story of a woman searching for the truth about her childhood and the secrets of her family’s past as she grapples with her own life. Alternating chapters tell the story of Ginger Tangle’s time growing up with her siblings and her domineering mother, and her present-day adult life in New Jersey where she’s having difficulties with her teenage daughter, Julia. When the Tangle children were still young, a tragic accident at the beach in Martha’s Vineyard took their mother’s life, shaping the three sisters in drastically differently ways: Ginger becomes so risk-averse that it pushes her loved ones away, Mimi fills her life with distraction until chaos takes over, and Callie vanishes altogether. Uncovering the truth of her past may not be the perfect fix, but Ginger feels deeply that only by facing up to the true history of that day on the beach will she find recovery and understanding. Delightful, heart-wrenching, and honest, this book is a lovely examination of memory, the past, and how, despite flaws, the strength of family ties remains throughout years of tumult and misunderstanding.

Customer Reviews

Compelling

Sisters One, Two, Three is about a dysfunctional family, the tragedy that scarred them, and how Glory Tangle’s decision changed her children’s lives for twenty-five years. This book takes the reader into the heart of a family, damaged by secrets, loss, and neglect.

Glory, the mother of the Tangle family, is an interesting but unlikable character. She takes advantage and emotionally abuses her oldest daughter, Ginger. She also manipulates her into accepting the blame for whatever happens in the family. Because of this, Ginger, unfortunately, grows up anxious about everything. And Although, her heart is in the right place; Ginger’s obsessive worrying drives her only child away.

Glory’s two other daughters, Mimi and Callie were also affected by their mother’s behavior. Mimi grew up cold and controlling and Callie, a loner. The older two sisters, Ginger and Mimi, were stunned speechless, by the immense secret that their mother chose to keep from them. Glory Tangle knew that some of her decisions were selfish, but in her mind, she was doing the best she could for her daughters.

Sisters One, Two, Three is a captivating, poignant and emotional charged story with unique characters and a compelling plot. Very enjoyable.

Thank you, Lake Union Publishing, and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy.
