Funny optimistic triplet drama
1 April 2017
This is not my absolute favourite book from Liane Moriarty, but it's still an excellent read. It has all the good ingredients of 'Big Little Lies' and 'What Alice Forgot' including love hate sibling relationships and lots of very funny moments. It feels so much like real life, almost like your own memories. Being one of several Irish sisters I have actually had a fork stuck in me by an angry sister, as happens in the wonderful opening scene.
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.
