Curl up with Cathy Lamb, an author you will come to cherish, as she makes you laugh, cry and reach for the chocolate - Ever since the Bommarito sisters were little girls, their mother has written them letters on pink paper when she has something especially important to tell them. This time, the message is urgent and impossible to ignore. River Bommarito requires open heart surgery, and Isabelle and her sisters are needed at home to run the family bakery and to take care of their brother, Henry, and grandmother, Stella, who believes she's Amelia Earhart. Poignant, funny, and as irresistible as one of the Bommarito Bakery's delicious giant cupcakes, "Henry's Sisters" is a novel about family and forgiveness, mothers and daughters, and gaining the wisdom to look ahead while still holding tight to everything that matters most.

Reviews

When the Bommarito sisters, Isabelle and Janie, hear that their domineering mother is going in for open heart surgery, they must forget the trauma of their childhood and return to their riverside Oregon hometown, Trillium River. Taking care of their mother and their demented grandmother (who believes she's Amelia Earhart) and watching after their mentally handicapped brother, Henry (possessed of an almost saintly, unconditional love for people), the independent sisters try to find a place in the world they've left behind. Lamb (The Last Time I Was Me) delivers grace, humor and forgiveness along with a litany of family trauma, which might seem heavy-handed in lesser hands. Fortunately, this finely pitched family melodrama is balanced with enough gallows humor and idiosyncratic characters to make it positively irresistible. (Aug.)

This is the first book I have read by this author and I was impressed. I think what happens to this family in many other books would have been terribly depressing but the anglev this author takes on it and the fast and witty dialogue between the family members made me wnat to just keep reading it. I enjoyed the relationship between Henry's three very different sisters. I'm looking forward to reading Cathy Lamb's other books.
