Publisher's Summary

The New York Times best-selling author of Falling presents a warm, wise, and wonderfully vivid novel about a mother who asks her three estranged daughters to come home to help her end her life.
Ronni Sunshine left London for Hollywood to become a beautiful, charismatic star of the silver screen. But at home she was a narcissistic, disinterested mother who alienated her three daughters.
As soon as possible, tomboy Nell fled her mother's overbearing presence to work on a farm and find her own way in the world as a single mother. The target of her mother's criticism, Meredith never felt good enough, thin enough, pretty enough. Her life took her to London - and into the arms of a man whom she may not even love. And Lizzy, the youngest, more like Ronni than any of them, seemed to have it easy, using her drive and ambition to build a culinary career to rival her mother's fame, while her marriage crumbled around her.
But now the Sunshine sisters are together again, called home by Ronni, who has learned that she has a serious disease and needs her daughters to fulfill her final wishes. And though Nell, Meredith, and Lizzy have never been close, their mother's illness draws them together to confront the old jealousies and secret fears that have threatened to tear these sisters apart. As they face the loss of their mother, they will discover if blood might be thicker than water after all.

I couldn't do it

What disappointed you about The Sunshine Sisters?

The story was decent but I couldn't bear the narration. I wish I had listened to the sample because it only took about 30'seconds to find the narration annoying to the point I couldn't listen. I tried several times but it was impossible to concentrate on the story because of the horrible accents.


Would you be willing to try another book from Jane Green? Why or why not?

I've read several books by Jane Green and would definitely try another with a better reader. Or maybe I should stick to the hard copy.


How could the performance have been better?

I don't know where to start here. The narration was slow, the voice irritating and the accents outrageously bad.


What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointed because I couldn't finish it.


Any additional comments?

I don't usually do reviews - and I read tons of books - but I found this narration so poor I thought I needed to share.

Narration left a bit to be desired

I love Jane but didn't care for her narration. The story was a bit predictable at first but I enjoy Jane so I plugged on, and I really am happy I stuck it out. It turned out to be quite delightful.
