really liked it

This is another book about letters and relationships. Barbara, aware she is dying on cancer, writes to her four daughters. If it sounds morbid, it isn’t. It is beautifully done and told with humour as well as being one that made me shed a few tears. I have read a couple of Elizabeth Noble’s other books, The Alphabet Weekends and The Reading Group and enjoyed them, but this is my favourite. It’s a beautiful and realistic picture of the differences that exist in families and the way sisters can view situations differently and have a different relationship with a parent simply because they are different personalities. It is about the ties that bind mother and daughter and sisters as well as the complexities of marriage.
