Three estranged sisters return home to bury their father and to celebrate the holidays with their mother in "The Sister Season" by Jennifer Scott.
Claire, the free-spirited youngest, hasn't been around the family since her older sister, Maya, accused her of having an affair with her husband. Oldest sister, Julia, has refused to take sides and is instead worried about her teenage son whom she recently found trying to take pills. All three girls and their mother, Elise, have suffered under the hands of their cruel father, and no one really seems all that sad that he is dead. But his death has brought them all together again, and skeletons of the past and present have come out to be finally faced. By the time the holidays are over, will the family be broken beyond repair or trying to heal?
This is a powerful story about the relationships of a family, particularly sisters, as well as parents and children.
"The Sister Season" is published by New American Library. It is $15 and 342 pages long.
