Brown, Eleanor(2011)
The Weird Sisters

Family dynamics are never normal and there is no one right defined role for every child in a family. Eleanor Brown introduces a fictional family in a college town with a Shakespearean professor as the father, and it is clear that this family is far from any idea of normal. Each of the three sisters has come home for a different reason. Rose returns to help with her mother’s chemo treatments, Bean is running from her mistakes in NYC, and Cordy is facing an unplanned pregnancy. None of the sisters want to admit her problems and face reality. The harmony of their lives reuniting is very well written and will appeal to readers who delight in eloquent language usage.
