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.
"The ending surprised me"
I enjoyed the writing. The story plot has a lot of feeling, it was hard to put book down.
"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. 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!
"barely kept my attention"
this story failed to captivate me... I barely finished... the build up is too long and tidious, too many unnecessary and repetitive details (or maybe I just could relate to the characters? I don't know... also possible), thebculmination is kinddah unexciting and the end is Lifetime-movie sweet... even though the narration is good, I barely finished it, almost gave up mid-book....
"Boring and irritating"
I tried several times to get into this story but could not. The story did not grip me, the characters are irritating and the American voice for the whole story is not to my taste. I prefer an english voice but as the story is set in the US then it of course would be best in a US accent just that I do not like to listen to a whole story with an US accent.
I don't know what her usual accent is, but not as another US read.
It was the narrator and the characters that I found difficult to get into.
