Library Journal - Library JournalFamily bonds prove fragile in Fine's exploration of the effects of secrets upon the relationship among four sisters whose lives are intertwined through hours of daily phone calls and weekly functions. The story is told through the not-so-impartial eyes of Bridie, social worker and family organizer, who has insisted they tell Liddy the rumors regarding her boyfriend. The closeness and loyalty of the Palmer sisters are shattered as Fine constructs a totally plausible tale of hurt feelings, misunderstandings, and revenge while new alliances and battle lines are drawn. Reader Jenny Lee captures the wide range of Bridie's emotions well. Recommended for collections with a regular female clientele.--Joyce Kessel, Villa Maria Coll., Buffalo, NY Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
