Product Overview

A major new talent tackles the complicated terrain of sisters, the power of books, and the places we decide to call home. Lovely . . . This novel should appeal to Shakespeare lovers, bibliophiles, fans of novels in academic settings, and stories of sisterhood. The narration is a creative and original blending of the three ''Weird Sisters'' as one."--"Library Journal."

"[A] bright, literate debut...." (starred review)
"[E]ntertaining....Eleanor Brown's neurotic, floundering characters have the potential to be spirited company."
From the Publisher
Annotation Three daughters of a Renaissance literature professor are named after Shakespearean ladies: Rosalind, Cordelia, and Bianca. In this spirit, the girls collectively embrace a teasing nickname inspired by MacBeth's witches, and in THE WEIRD SISTERS author Eleanor Brown unites their voices by narrating with the unusual plural-first-person "we." When the sisters' mother grows ill with cancer, all three grown women return to their Ohio hometown where over the course of a special summer each discovers opportunities for redemption, reconciliation, and literary playfulness.
Editors Note This is the "delightful" (People) New York Times bestseller that's earned raves from Sarah Blake, Helen Simonson, and reviewers everywhere-the story of three sisters who love each other, but just don't happen to like each other very much... Three sisters have returned to their childhood home, reuniting the eccentric Andreas family. Here, books are a passion (there is no problem a library card can't solve) and TV is something other people watch. Their father-a professor of Shakespeare who speaks almost exclusively in verse-named them after the Bard's heroines. It's a lot to live up to. The sisters have a hard time communicating with their parents and their lovers, but especially with one another. What can the shy homebody eldest sister, the fast-living middle child, and the bohemian youngest sibling have in common? Only that none has found life to be what was expected; and now, faced with their parents' frailty and their own personal disappointments, not even a book can solve what ails them...
