did not like it

I thought I was going to enjoy this book. It's well-written enough to keep me reading to the end--I usually stop reading books that I don't enjoy.

This is a story about three thirty-something sisters who return to the small town of Mulberry GA to attend their (crazy? controlling) mother's funeral. It's about their relationship with their mother and each other and all the pain and anger they have about the way they were raised.

I kept reading this book because I was really hoping for some closure, or forgiveness, or growth, or something to dispel the anger that this book is filled with, but it just seemed to end the way it started.

I think there is a sequel to this book but I can't imagine that it answers any of these issues. I'll have to read other people's reviews to find out.
