The Secrets Sisters Keep

The Devlin’s are a normal Irish family of four, 3 older sisters who have doted on their younger brother, who is now a 27 year old man living at home with his parents and seemingly with no life path. His sister Julie is married to Harry, and has 4 boys – 3 unruly triplets and Tom. Since Harry has inherited a lot of money, her life has been turned upside down and she feels she cannot tell her sisters how meaningless her life feels. Her sister Sophie is beautiful, an ex model and a successful business woman. But she too doesn’t want to tell her sisters how lonely she is. Louise is smart, driven and the mother of Clara, a 4 year old genius who has issues all of her own. Louise buries herself in work rather than turning to her sisters. But it is Gavin, the brother who seems to have no direction who changes the lives of everyone around them. The sisters open up to one another, learn to rely on each other and something magical is created from this.

Just like Mad About You by the same author, I loved reading this book. It was the perfect read for a lazy weekend afternoon sat in front of the TV with the cricket playing in the background.

  3. Sounds like a great “beach read” book. Sometimes, you need a book that lets you be a bit of a lazy reader, especially for me after reading Unbroken, so intense!
