Nancy Thayer writes wonderful books about Nantucket. This was no exception.

It's okay. 3 sisters come together in their father's old house to live together for 3 months. The first half of the book is rather like listening to three 6 year olds fighting and griping with each other over resentments from the past. Kinda boring. I stuck through it though and it does get better in the second half. I probably won't read more of this author based on this book.

Enjoyed the story line, liked the characters. A little like "and they lived happily ever after".
