really liked it
bookshelves: chick-lit, fiction-historical
Read from July 21 to August 13, 2011

A slow paced (but not plodding)coming-of-age novel. Unlike many of its ilk, it focuses on not age, but real maturity. Three sisters grow to become women, making all the mistakes young women make, and finally come to a point of understanding and contentment. The timing reflects current social patterns, in that maturity comes long after what most consider "adulthood", and lays out for us the events that bring our heroines to that point... experiences, not age.

It's a nice relaxing pace, more reminiscent of a warm bath than a roller coaster ride. Definitely one for when there's time to quiet down for a bit with a cup of tea in front of the fire.
