The Tangle family, two parents and four kids, live in New Jersey, in a modest cape with three bedrooms and a small patch of lawn, dad mows every Saturday. Thirteen year-old, Ginger is the oldest, Mimi is known for her Shirley Temple dimples, 8-year old Charlie is blessed with gorgeous eyelashes and the youngest Callie, has a delightful smile.

Life is pretty simple. Dad, Solly works for an overstock company and matriarch, Glory dreams about how it all would be different, if she’d become a stage star. Now she entertains herself doing jigsaw puzzles of places she wants to visit. One summer, the Tangles go on very rare vacation.

After a tragic accident on Martha’s Vineyard, keeping secrets becomes a way of life for the Tangle family. When they get older, with memories tightly locked away, the sisters take very different paths. Callie disappears, Mimi keeps so busy she has no time to think, and Ginger is always so worried something bad is going to happen, that she almost loses her family, the relationships she holds most dear. After Ginger’s daughter, Julia overhears her mother reveal a long-held family secret everything changes.

Nancy Star is known for writing complex and compelling stories about family relationships. SISTERS ONE, TWO, THREE is no different. Once I started reading, I was drawn into the characters and their emotions. Some were universal and easy to content with, others took time to digest. Speaking the truth and receiving truth is not easy for these characters. It’s been said, “you are as sick as your secrets” and the Tangles need time to heal. I love stories about women, particularly mothers and daughters and sisters. SISTERS ONE, TWO, THREE is about love and witty at times, but also explores how we can learn to forgive and let go.

  7. I remember needing to be home by the time the 6 p.m. horn sounded and being able to ride your bike around town without a care in the world (grew up in a small farm town in Iowa). I miss those days!

  10. WOW! This book sounds really good. My family has a lot of secrets. I found out a big one with I was in my 20s. I remember when I was little me and one of my sisters weren’t allowed to cross the railroad tracks, but we always did. All of the fun stuff was on that side. there was the river that we used to go play near and the woods where we found an old grave and some boys actually tried to dig it up because the tomb stone said Jesse James. Whether it was the real one or just someone with the same name buried in the middle of the woods with nothing around, no one knows, but those boys were determined to find out. They were sure there was a bunch of money buried with him. I got scared and ran home. I didn’t want to see any dead bodies. Those are just a couple of my stories. There were many more exciting times back then.

  11. One of my fondest memories still to this day is when my Uncle Charlie would lift me up over his head and spin me like a helicopter. Unfortunately I also remember how bummed I was when I got to big for that haha. Ahh to be small again…


  12. Playing outside every night with all the kids in the neighborhood. We didn’t come home until the street lights came on. Those were such great times.
