Women's Fiction

Ever since the Bommarito sisters were little girls, their mother, River, has written them a letter on pink pager when she has something especially important to impart. And this time, the message is urgent and impossible to ignore--River requires open-heart surgery, and Isabelle and her sisters are needed at home to run the family bakery and take care of their brother and ailing grandmother.

Isabelle has worked hard to leave Trillium River, Oregon, behind as she travels the globe taking award-winning photographs. It's not that Isabelle hates her family. On the contrary, she and her sisters Cecilia, an outspoken kindergarten teacher, and Jamie, a bestselling author, share a deep, loving bond. And all of them adore their brother Henry, whose disabilities haven't stopped him from helping out at the bakery and bringing good cheer to everyone in town.

But going home again has a way of forcing open the secrets and hurts that the Bommaritios would rather keep tightly closed--Isabelle's fleeting and too-frequent relationships, Janie's obsessive compulsive disorder, and Cecilia's self-destructive streak and grief over her husband's death. Working together to look after Henry and save their flagging bakery, Isabelle and her sister begin to find answers to questions they never knew existed, unexpected ways to slave the wounds of their childhoods, and the courage to grasp surprising new chances at happiness.

Re: Henry's Sisters

I absoloutely loved this book. This book was hard to put down - just the kind of book I enjoy. It brought out all kinds of emotions. I sympathized, laughed and cried throughout Henry's Sisters and have recommended it many of my friends and my book discussion group. Be sure to pick up this book. It's a winner......
