As an avid reader of chicklit and mum of a young daughter I was really excited when I saw this one on my local shelf at Tesco and it was a very good read.
The stories of the 4 sisters impacted by the death of their mother was both touching and entertaining. Each sister is different in her own way and the book takes them through the first year after the death of their mother as they each take on board the advice she left them in letters she wrote before her death and through the diary she wrote throughout her illness. Through their mothers thoughts and experiences they learn more about her life and learn to apply her learning to help shape their own relationships and lives.
If you like Cathy Kelly, Marian Keyes and Adele Parkes this one is for you. Cannot believe I’ve had The Reading Group on my bookshelf for a year or so no and haven’t read it – am now looking foward to it immensely.
