Review

“The always insightful and engaging Rice explores the mystical bond between sisters as she portrays families learning what it means to love and forgive.”—Booklist


From the Hardcover edition.

Product Description

New York Times bestselling author Luanne Rice explores the complex emotional equations of love and loyalty that hold together three pairs of remarkable sisters, in an unforgettable story of loss, redemption, and forgiveness
 
The storm off Mackinac Island that engulfed Maura Shaw’s husband and elder daughter,Carrie, also swept away the illusion of her life as the perfect midwestern wife and mother. Now, after years away, Maura has returned to Rhode Island to teach English at the fabled Newport Academy and to seek a new beginning. Newport has never failed to infuse Maura with a sense of mystery and hope, but ever since the accident, her younger daughter, fourteen-year-old Beck, has retreated into the safe, predictable world of mathematics. Without Carrie, Beck has lost half of herself—the half that would have fit into the elite private school she and her brother, Travis, will attend. The half that made things right. Sixteen-year-old Travis is also struggling to adjust—juggling a long-distance first love and an attraction to a girl with a wicked sparkle in her eye. And for Maura, ghosts linger here—an unresolved breach with her own beloved sister and a long-ago secret that may now have the power to set her free. . . .

4.0 out of 5 stars Math = love Jan. 6 2011

If you like Luanne Rice's books and style in general, you will love this book. The focus is very much on family relationships, particularly those between sisters. After the death of her husband, Maura returns home from Ohio to Newport after 18 years away, during which she has been estranged from her sister Katharine. Her daughter, Carrie, ran away from home in the wake of her father's death and has missing for a year. This is incredibly painful for the entire family, but particularly hard on Beck, Carrie's younger sister. Maura tries to rebuild her life in Newport, including continuing her search for Carrie. As she reconnects not only with her sister but with a lost love from years before, the pieces of her shattered life begin to mend. Although a little unrealistic in terms of plot development, this was extremely moving and the characters were compelling.
2.0 out of 5 stars a disappointment May 12 2017

It started out interesting enough, but it seemed like the author lost interest or intention-of-plot about half way through and then it was rather plodding.
3.0 out of 5 stars A nice easy read Feb. 11 2017

No surprises, easy to figure out the story, but a nice escape from reality. Great book for a teen or young adult woman.

4.0 out of 5 stars Almost makes me want to look at my son's geometry book! April 18 2009
By M. Smiley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Who knew that math would make a good idea for a great read! Combine the math with the close relationships of two generations of sisters and Luanne Rice rates an A plus in my book! As we follow grieving mom Maura Shaw moving her two children Beck and Travis from Ohio to Newport, RI, we learn more about the death of her husband and what caused her oldest daughter Carrie to run away. The sister plot thickens as there is also a deep rift between Maura and her own sister Katherine, some sister ghosts at the academy, and two other rich sisters at the academy. Although I've never had a love for math, this book made me appreciate the different angles, circles, triangles that love and life can take! I also immediately called my sister after finishing "The Geometry of Sisters" - time for bonding and a girl's weekend! Luanne Rice doesn't disappoint again - I love her books!

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved this story! March 4 2011
By a reviewer in Seattle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
I loved this story and will look into more books by this author. While reading, I was so deeply reminded of the love I had for my sister and how much I miss her. It was a wonderful reminder of the love that only sisters can share.
I "read" the audiobook version and it was delightful. The readers gave excellent voice to each character. This is most definitely a book that I will recommend to my friends.
