I picked this book so that I could maybe find ways to communicate better with my 35-year old daughter. Instead, I read about a remarkable mother, and her very interesting daughters. I thoroughly enjoyed the role of Mark, and how he stepped up for his girls. This is a perfect light summer read.
For every mother out there with a daughter, you should so read this book. From the love she feels for each daughter she has, to the relationship with her much younger husband. Brought not only tears of laughter but tears of love and respect for not just my mother but every mother out there. Four daughters with very different personalities, a step-dad that tries to deal with each on her level. Amazing book!
Brit chick lit. Four sisters, all with various drama in their lives, deal with the loss of their mother to cancer. She left them each a letter and her diary (of which they each receive a copy). The book spans the year after her death and, of course, every one lives happily ever after.
