By Pat the cat TOP 1000 REVIEWER on Oct. 26 2013
Format: Paperback
This is the first book that I read by this author. It was slow but it hook me. Although I don't have sisters, I was in a mood to read about nurturing relationships and, as a result, I enjoyed this book. It may speak to you more if you have a similar history (i.e, loosing a wonderful mother very young when in your mid-twenties). That said, the title is a little deceiving because, it's not so much about the letters from the mother but rather the secrets that she felt compelled to share with her daughters after she died -- a little cowardly and somewhat cruel, if you ask me.... Still, I give it 3 stars (good).

Once I got over the sensitive subject matter that caused tears spring to my eyes on more than one occasion in the beginning, I thoroughly enjoyed this novel. It was sensitive, the characters relatable and the plot rolled along smoothly.

There was enough intrigue surrounding the daughter's lives to keep me interested and I enjoyed the exploration of their relationships especially with their age differences. Even though I only have brothers I found could still relate to their relationships which I have had a hard time with some novels in the past about sisters.

The letters from their mum were so heartfelt and brought tears to my eyes on numerous occasions and I felt the love for her daughters and them for each other over and over again - even their stepfather's character was brimming with it.

I couldn't find much to complain about with this novel. It won't be added to my Top 10, but I thoroughly enjoyed it!
