After a tragic coincidence on Martha’s Vineyard, keeping secrets becomes a lifestyle for the Tangle circle of relatives. With memories locked away, the sisters take divergent paths. Callie disappears, Mimi helps to keep so busy she has no time to think, and Ginger develops a lifelong aversion to risk that threatens the relationships she holds most dear.
When a whispered comment overheard by her rebellious teenage daughter forces Ginger to reveal a long-held circle of relatives secret, the Tangles’ carefully constructed internet of lies begins to get to the bottom of. Upon the death of Glory, the circle of relatives’s colorful matriarch, and the return of long-estranged Callie, Ginger resolves to go back to Martha’s Vineyard and piece together what truly happened on that calamitous day when a shadow fell over four sun-kissed siblings playing on the shore. Along side Ginger’s newfound understanding come the keys to reconciliation: with her mother, with her sisters, and with her daughter.
At turns heartbreaking, humorous, and hopeful, Sisters One, Two, Three explores not only the consequences of secrets—even secrets kept out of love—but also the courage it takes to speak the truth, to forgive, and to let go.
