Publisher's Summary

Every child prodigy grows up eventually. For the Promise sisters, escaping their mother's narcissism and the notoriety that came with her best-selling book hasn't been easy. Minerva Promise claimed that her three test-tube daughters - gifted pianist Joanie, artistic Meg, and storyteller Avery - were engineered and molded to be geniuses. In adulthood, their modest lives fall far short of her grand ambitions. But now, 20 years after the book's release, she hopes to redeem herself by taking part in a new documentary.
Meg, who hasn't picked up a paintbrush in years, adamantly refuses to participate, until a car accident leaves her with crushing medical bills. While she recuperates in Seattle, the three sisters reluctantly meet with filmmaker Hal Seeger, another former prodigy. Like them, he's familiar with the weight of failed potential. But as he digs deeper, he uncovers secrets they've hidden from each other and a revelation that will challenge their beliefs, even as it spurs them to forge their own extraordinary lives at last.

The story grabbed my attention

The story really grabbed my attention right away. I enjoyed the narration very much. A few twists I didn't expect, and a couple that I didn't really like (but that's my prerogative). Overall an interesting story. Unfortunately something about the ending seemed flat. But I'm still glad I listened to it.

painful

this story was very boring. It was tough to listen to completion. I found the entire experience painful. I'm not even sure why I finished the book. It was not worth it
