THE HURRICANE SISTERS
Genre: Mainstream, General Mainstream Fiction
Frank has a gift for Southern fiction and this novel is no exception — complete with an overbearing matriarch and dysfunction all around. Although the plot is engaging, none of the characters are particularly endearing, so it is difficult to care about what happens to them. Toward the end, things come together and make the book a worthwhile read.
Elderly Maisie wants the best for her family, yet her daughter Liz cannot see past her interfering ways. Liz and Clayton’s marriage seems all right on the surface, but there is trouble brewing beneath. Their daughter is struggling to make something of her art and their son seems all right. Can they come together to support one another, or will things fall apart? (WILLIAM MORROW, Jun., 336 pp., $26.99)
