It was cute. A quick and easy read that made me want the story to keep going.
As always a nice easy read from this author. This book is a bit more modern than normal.Still very good though.
It was a fun Soap Opera read.

Maureen Lee's books are very similar but nice relaxing reads. I did think that some of the books would have characters interlacing through the stories but this doesn't seem to be the case. Kitty and her sisters, what a family! I am not sure I even like Kitty that much and some of them seem quite disturbed. I think that if the book had not been set in the 60s and 70 s to begin with , a family story like this set in 2014 would have much more dire consequences . They did get away with an awful lot....more

There were some funny moments in this book and some likable characters, however I thought some of the twists in the storyline in the latter half of the book were a bit far fetched and the ending was disappointing.

Esto de coger cualquier libro que haya por casa para llenar horas de transporte público a veces tiene estas cosas... Novela intrascendente, de "valor humano", con un personaje al que le ocurren más incidentes en su vida que a Papillón... Narración correcta, sin más, con algún momento de interés, en la que lo más interesente puede ser la técnica de foco sobre determinados momentos de la vida de la protagonista. Y nada más, que tampoco está el patio para muchos lujos.

I like Maureen Lee as an author, but when you've read several of her books you tend to see a lot of similar plot lines. Kitty and her sisters is slightly more original, but generally nothing new. Still, it's an enjoyable read anyway.

I felt very involved in this story, like I knew the whole family. I thought it was a great story, following all the sisters. Well written, and recommended for any Maureen Lee fan.
