Three triplets having their annual birthday dinner in a restaurant have an ugly fight that ends up with trips to the hospital. Gemma, Cat and Lyn are all facing life events. Cat is trying to deal with her husband's infidelity. Gemma is damaged by a past relationship and Lyn can't stop being a superwoman. The themes of having children, not having children, trust and betrayal run though this book. It's not a downer though, on the contrary it's very funny and optimistic. Highly recommended.
But that is pretty much all I can fault about a fantastic read. I have found a piece of each of the email characters in myself, which is highlighted be the way in which they also show them finding different side to themselves. Even the men, so I goes to show that everyone has a bit of most personalities within them, we usually only show one most of the time we just don't show them all the time....be boring I everyone was the same all the time, wouldn't it!? Thanks for the great read Laine
The characters are truly memorable and I loved the interplay between the relationships. There are little touches that make this book truly special and back stories that shed light on how they each developed into such different personalities. Although they are triplets and very close they do not necessarily know all of each other's secrets. The book takes you on a journey through each of their lives and some of it is heartbreaking as you become so attached to them early on and life definitely throws some curveballs their way.
Also as a resident of Sydney Australia it was thrilling to actually know the locations mentioned in the book and made the story become even more alive for me.
This is the second Liane Moriarty book I've read and as soon as I finished I had to buy a third. Her stories are so powerful and really stay with you.
I know this book in particular I will be reading again one day as I was sad to say good-bye to these sisters. I would even go so far to say as this is now in my top 5 favourite books of all time.
So much drama is rather tiring. Couldn’t stop reading it though, wanted to see how certain situations were resolved.
You don't need anything more.
Love Liane's work.
I'm working my way through all of her books and shall be quite annoyed when I'm all caught up and left waiting for another.
Being set in Sydney was a good change from British or American writing. I got into the small snippits of memory from strangers who interacted with the triplets throughout the book.
It was well crafted story telling and I began to understand each character.
I will look forward to reading more from this author.
