his books were written they continue to be taught in schools, discussed, and revered Fifteen years ago his poet wife, Maeve, died, leaving him to raise their three daughters in their small seaside town of Southport, Connecticut Bill did the best he could, although the sisters took care of themselves and became eveninseparable.One morning, the sisters get the call from their long time housekeeper that Bill has died It s a shock, as they felt somehow he might live forever, but the three Liza, Maggie, and Tricia return to their childhood home to make sense of it all.It turns out that Bill was hiding a few shocking secrets from the girls, which knock them for a loop As they try to ready the house for sale, they re desperately searching for Bill s missing memoir, and in light of their discoveries, wonder what everything will mean for his literary legacy and their lives How will it affect their own memories of their father, too On top of dealing with their father s death, each woman has their own challenges to deal with It s an emotional time, fraught with roadblocks and crises which test their relationships and force them to reexamine their pasts and their futures.I love a book full of good family drama, and The Sweeney Sisters certainly doesn t disappoint Lian Dolan did a great job with her story, and I couldn t get enough of these characters Sure, it s predictable in places, but I love the fact that Dolan didn t veer too far into melodrama, because there definitely were places the plot could have gone into that territory, and that might have derailed the story.How well do we know those we love How much can we depend on family in our time of need How do others see us Should late in life discoveries change how we ve viewed a person for our entire life These were fascinating questions this book tries to answer, and does so well.I received an advance copy of the book in exchange for an unbiased review Thanks to William Morrow Books, Lian Dolan, and Wunderkind

brought to light the power of the ancestral knowledge and the life changing impact it might have In The Sweeney Sisters, author Lian Dolan incorporates genetic testing in her storytelling, just as a casual thing people do out of curiosity It is a story that represents current times, and I found it very enjoyable.The Sweeney Sisters, a lighthearted humorous story of sisterhood, is about Maggie, Liza and Tricia, a close knit threesome, redheaded sisters who although are very different, have learned to navigate their relationships and enjoy each other as adults They return to their family home in Southport, Connecticut to settle matters after their beloved, famous father, Bill Sweeney passes away Their father s lawyer reveals to them some surprising news he has another they don t know about, and he has written a possibly revealing memoir.Meanwhile, in Washington DC, genetic testing led journalist and only child, Serena Tucker, to discover the identity of her biological father, and it was not a simple matter Her mother s secret affair years ago with the Connecticut next door neighbor, literary genius and college professor, Bill Sweeney, led to the birth of a baby girl Growing up on the same street as the Sweeney sisters, seeing their bond and now realizing she is one of them is important information in understanding who she really is, and Serena chooses to make the effort to connect with her sisters and learnabout what kind of man her father had been.Maggie, Liza and Tricia come together at their family home to mourn the father they thought they knew, but with the news of Serena and the discovery of the memoir, they are forced to tackle the truth of their past and appreciate the true meaning of family Bringing together three young women and their new older sibling doesn t come without messiness and ups and downs Emotions, old boyfriends and memories amidst this heartfelt reunion of sisters creates author Lian Dolan s wonderful story of family.In The Sweeney Sisters, the family home is located in Southport, CT and I couldn t help but love all the accurate local references, from Garelick Herbs to Fortuna s to the Pequot Library The loss of a literary legend, a secret sibling and a hidden memoir contribute to this meaningful story of family and sisterhood I enjoyed the lighthearted humor and recommend this book for a day at the beach or a day in
