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.

"Hard to follow."
Unfortunately this book was hard to follow. I could not tell when it was a different character or when it changed from one time frame to another.
"A Little Annoying"
I pretty much was annoyed and disliked every character in the book. The thing is I don't have to like the characters to like the book I just have to like the characters story. It's like your waiting for someone to do something in any of the different circumstance but it never really happens. I guess I wanted more character development, a little more drama. It's almost like the writer wrote a complete book and than cut out parts because she didn't want it to seem predictable or something. I guess I wanted the book to come full circle but it fell dead for me.
"The ending surprised me"
I enjoyed the writing. The story plot has a lot of feeling, it was hard to put book down.
The ending. Because it was over and I could go back to reading something interesting.
Inane story about a family with 3 daughters. All of the characters were unlikable and I spent the entire book waiting for SOMETHING to happen.
Her narration was the only decent thing about this book.
NO! PLEASE DON'T!
I really wish I could get those wasted hours of my life back.
Interesting perspective with complex characters. Great family narratives and stories. Can families share memories and secrets?
"Family with secrets in an era when that was expected"
Setting, 50s to current, a family with tragedy and the inability to acknowledge to the public that you had a problem. Stifling to think these family members couldn't lean on each other to cope with loss. Not so uncommon.
"I have sisters, girls and love a story that speaks"
Narrator was engaging- and kept me wanting more. I don't think I could have lived with a mother like Glory! I never caught the plot twist , and am so glad I didn't, until it was revealed.
"Not what I had expected."
Not at all what I had expected. A nice story, though. Recommendation to friends, maybe
Thoroughly enjoyed this book...loved the intricate twist and turns of this novel ...Suspenseful , heartwarming!
"Forget this one"
Really disliked this book. Characters were annoying . No merit to story. I persevered hoping it would get better.
