After a tragic accident on Martha's Vineyard, keeping secrets becomes a way of life for the Tangle family. With memories locked away, the sisters take divergent paths. Callie disappears, Mimi keeps so busy she has no time to think, and Ginger develops a lifelong aversion to risk that threatens the relationships she holds most dear.
When a whispered comment overheard by her rebellious teenage daughter forces Ginger to reveal a long-held family secret, the Tangles' carefully constructed web of lies begins to unravel. Upon the death of Glory, the family's colorful matriarch, and the return of long-estranged Callie, Ginger resolves to return to Martha's Vineyard and piece together what really happened on that calamitous day when a shadow fell over four sun-kissed siblings playing at the shore. Along with Ginger's newfound understanding come the keys to reconciliation: with her mother, with her sisters, and with her daughter.
At turns heartbreaking, humorous, and hopeful, Sisters One, Two, Three explores not only the consequences of secrets--even secrets kept out of love--but also the courage it takes to speak the truth, to forgive, and to let go.

Star (Carpool Diem) crafts a moving story of a woman searching for the truth about her childhood and the secrets of her familys past as she grapples with her own life. Alternating chapters tell the story of Ginger Tangles time growing up with her siblings and her domineering mother, and her present-day adult life in New Jersey where shes having difficulties with her teenage daughter, Julia. When the Tangle children were still young, a tragic accident at the beach in Marthas Vineyard took their mothers life, shaping the three sisters in drastically differently ways: Ginger becomes so risk-averse that it pushes her loved ones away, Mimi fills her life with distraction until chaos takes over, and Callie vanishes altogether. Uncovering the truth of her past may not be the perfect fix, but Ginger feels deeply that only by facing up to the true history of that day on the beach will she find recovery and understanding. Delightful, heart-wrenching, and honest, this book is a lovely examination of memory, the past, and how, despite flaws, the strength of family ties remains throughout years of tumult and misunderstanding.
