Sunshine Sisters
Sunshine Sisters | Jane Green
The New York Times bestselling author of Falling presents a warm, wise, and wonderfully vivid novel about a mother who asks her three estranged daughters to come home to help her end her life. Ronni Sunshine left London for Hollywood to become a beautiful, charismatic star of the silver screen. But at home, she was a narcissistic, disinterested mother who alienated her three daughters. As soon as possible, tomboy Nell fled her mother's overbearing presence to work on a farm and find her own way in the world as a single mother. The target of her mother's criticism, Meredith never felt good enough, thin enough, pretty enough. Her life took her to London--and into the arms of a man whom she may not even love. And Lizzy, the youngest, more like Ronni than any of them, seemed to have it easy, using her drive and ambition to build a culinary career to rival her mother's fame, while her marriage crumbled around her. But now the Sunshine sisters are together again, called home by Ronni, who has learned that she has a serious disease and needs her daughters to fulfill her final wishes. And though Nell, Meredith, and Lizzy have never been close, their mother's illness draws them together to confront the old jealousies and secret fears that have threatened to tear these sisters apart. As they face the loss of their mother, they will discover if blood might be thicker than water after all...

Another easy read. I'm not aiming to increase my IQ here, I'm trying to send myself off to sleep!
Forgot to take a photo.
Having to belt through these books at a rate of knots, because my 8 year old want to do a drive sale for charity!!! 😂

Meh. The pacing of this book was strange as hell. It was back - loaded. It just wasn‘t my favorite of hers 🤷🏽‍♀️

Slowly working my way through this one. Busy time of the semester, with finals starting tomorrow. To top that off, the Library is getting a new roof...the roof we were to get in July...so it happens during finals...with a porta potty for the workers...right outside the break room window. Ah, livin the dream.

Kappadeemom My daughter finishes her semester next week at Middle GA. I‘ll be glad to have her home ❤️ 2y
rustoryhuf @Kappadeemom our daughter finishes at Georgia College in May. Yesterday she uploaded to applications to grad school. Don‘t think I‘ll get her back. Have fun and cherish your girlie. 2y
Kappadeemom @rustoryhuf awww, so bittersweet. My stepson is visiting Georgia College on Sat (basketball coaches are looking at him). I think he‘s had some interest from GSWU too ;) Its nice to see them fly! 2y
rustoryhuf @Kappadeemom let me know if he decides to visit GSW, I‘ll make sure to touch base with him while he‘s on campus! (edited) 2y

I actually wound up liking this more than I thought I would. Three sisters cope separately with their self-absorbed, narcissistic movie star mother. At the end of her life, the mother attempts to reunite and make amends with her daughters. I enjoyed the individual stories of the daughters, but I felt the end was a bit rushed - they all seemed to make up and live happily ever after too quickly considering their pasts.

Allowing ourselves to show our vulnerability is how we make human connections. If we're not showing other people our true selves, our weaknesses and flaws, how can we ever allow ourselves to be known?

Bostonmomx2 @MimiLovesToRead right. I don't care about any of these women at all. I'm too close to the end to stop now but I'm certainly in no hurry. 2y
MimiLovesToRead @Bostonmomx2 i haven't gotten too far in. She's just started introducing the daughters. Have you seen Mommy Dearest? The mother is so much reminding me of Joan Crawford. 2y

JoyceRN You guys have read my mind. I‘m about 2/3 of the way done. Don‘t want to give up on it, but I just am dragging my feet finishing it. Not an inspiring read. “I think I can, I think I can “ LOL. I WILL finish it!! 2y
Bostonmomx2 @JoyceRN ya. She‘s such a hit or miss author for me. Trust me when I say if you bail, you won‘t miss much at all. 2y

#TBRtemptation post 4! #BEA17 edition! Just released. Ronni was a beautiful Hollywood star & a disinterested mother to 3 daughters. They left when they could: Nell landed on a farm as a single mom; Meredith went to London with a man she may not love; Lizzy became a star chef with a ruined marriage. Ronni calls them together to fulfill her last wishes, even as they suffer crises. Is blood thicker the water? #blameLitsy #blameMrBook 😎

Lola There's a character named Litzy?! I think that makes this required reading for all in LitsyLand! 😛 (edited) 2y

3 STARS - If you're looking for a lighter, beachy-type read that touches on some big topics and is a quick read then this is for you. It was an easy read but there's a definite lack of depth to the characters & plot considering it deals with some big issues. Just an okay read for me. ---- Full review is on my blog: http://thebakingbookworm.blogspot.ca/2017/06/the-sunshine-sisters.html?m=1

ReadingSusan I have finally come to the conclusion that her books just aren't for me. 2y
Bakingbookworm @ReadingSusan I'm thinking the same thing. I need something more substantial. I'm not a lover of fluffier books. Just a personal taste thing. 2y

I would have preferred a bit more substance to the plot and character development and found the romantic relationships a little too contrived and convenient. That being said, if you're looking for a change of pace for your brain, this is the perfect light summer read!
