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.

Another excellent book. Not as outstanding as say The Leaving of Liverpool or Martha's Journey, but very interesting, with great character development, creativity (the true father of Eve's nephew Jake...) and themes (Kitty declining first offer of marriage...).

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.

Nice 'no concentration needed' book.

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.
