The Andreas family is one of readers. Their father, a renowned Shakespeare professor who speaks almost entirely in verse, has named his three daughters after famous Shakespearean women. When the sisters return to their childhood home, ostensibly to care for their ailing mother, but really to lick their wounds and bury their secrets, they are horrified to find the others there. "See, we love each other. We just don't happen to like each other very much."
But the sisters soon discover that everything they've been running from-one another, their small hometown, and themselves-might offer more than they ever expected.
A major new talent tackles the complicated terrain of sisters, the power of books, and the places we decide to call home.
