Novel "The Weird Sisters"

In THE WEIRD SISTERS, Eleanor Brown brings to life the dynamic Andreas family.  The patriarch of the family is a zealous Shakespeare professor who communicates primarily in verse and named all three girls for great Shakespearean women—Rose (Rosalind), Bean (Bianca), and Cordy (Cordelia); as a result, the girls find that they have a lot to live up to.  A love of books and knowledge of Shakespearean couplets might be the only thing these sisters have in common and when they each return to their childhood home—supposedly to care for their sick mother, but in truth to escape their own personal disasters—they are horrified to find the others there.  Over the course of one tumultuous summer, the sisters’ buried secrets begin to surface.  Smart and sharp-witted, THE WEIRD SISTERS examines the meaning of adulthood, and the often circuitous path to getting there. With the Andreas’, Eleanor Brown has created a family that is warring, loving, messy, and unmistakably human.
