This book is one of those that is just impossible to put down. In alternating chapters it tells the story of the Miller girls: Holly, Tara, Stella, and their mother, Rose. My personal favorite was the youngest, Holly, whose insecurities were easy to relate to but not annoying. This book may be a little predictable, but that fact makes it no less enjoyable.

In Kinvarra, Ireland, Rose and Hugh Miller are about to celebrate their fortieth wedding anniversary. The parents are especially proud of each of their adult daughters who will join them for a gala to mark the event. Stella, a single mom, is a successful lawyer Tara has done well as a soap opera writer and recently married her youngest Holly seems happy with an artistic life. Everything seems perfect for the Miller brood as they prepare for the ruby wedding party.----- However the matriarch does not see her world through rose colored glasses. She has some doubts about spending her golden years with Hugh. Stella is brilliant at law and even as a mom, but feels lonely as the love of her life has never surfaced Tara is doing great at the job, but the love of her life appears to be a drunk Holly may be the envy of everyone due to her free lifestyle, but in reality is bored yet fears making any changes. These four females will bond even more so over the course of the festivities.----- This is a tremendous family drama as the four females through asides and discussions reveal that they reveal doubts about their so-called perfect worlds. Each feels they suffer from a major failure at something significant yet also knows that they share a sisterly bond (including one with the matriarch) that helps each cope with their personal crisis not solving them only surviving their troubles and misgivings. Readers will find this book a powerful and realistic character study.-------- Harriet Klausner

Cathy Kelly is obviously a fantastic writer. But her characterization was just not up to par. To me it seemed as if all of the characters were the same person. They talked the same, they thought the same. I kept getting the three sisters confused. There wasn't even enough of a differentiation between the men and women. They were very one dimentional. The dialogue was boring. Kelly tries to be clever and comical, but the dialogue is just flat. I found myself reading sections of dialogue and zoning out. I would have to go back to make sure I knew what the characters were talking about. I've read up on the rest of Cathy Kelly's novels to see if there were any I would maybe like better. But in reading about her other novels, I noticed that they seem to have the same plot lines. There is always a group of people who seem happy on the outside, but who have secret issues on the inside. I'm afraid that would get too boring after awhile. So even though I recognize that Cathy Kelly is a talented writer, I'm not sure I like her as a novelist. The story and the characters just weren't memorable enough for me. I feel like I've met the characters before in other novels by other authors only they were done much better.
