Reviewed by Cindy Loven

Three sisters, each in a different place in their lives, find themselves facing change.  After a while on the market their grandmother's home sells and they meet for the weekend to clean out the house for the new buyer, who wants to take immediate possession. 
Each sister is struggling with areas of their lives, one sister is tired of her husband, one sister is tired of life period and one sister is fixing to find out her life isn't as perfect as she thinks. 
A book that will keep you interested as each sister deals with her own crisis, you will laugh at their silliness, cry as they cry.  And feel the anger and hurt they are feeling.  The precious memories they each share of the specialness of the grandmother will tug at your heart as you remember your ownmemories of your grandma. My favorite thing was how the grandmother was able to make each girl feel like she was the favorite, I loved the ending line where Ginger says that all of the grandmothers in the world she was her favorite, as she leaves her grandma's home for the last time.  LOVED that!!
I enjoyed this book, took a bit to get going for me, but it was a good book. I related very well to each sister, knowing that in each of us, there is a bit of that sister, the despair, the boredom, the lonliness and the "everything is fine in my life" feelings.  302 pages $14.99 US 4 stars.
