The Sunshine Sisters
Ronni Sunshine left London for Hollywood in the sixties to become a beautiful, charismatic star of the silver screen. But at home, she was a narcissistic, disinterested mother who alienated her three daughters. Still, when Ronni discovers she has a serious illness, she calls her now-adult girls home to fulfill her final wishes.
Nell, Meredith, and Lizzy are all going through crises of their own. But as their mother’s illness draws them together to confront old jealousies and secret fears, they discover that blood might be thicker than water after all.
“All women will recognize something of themselves in one of the Sunshine sisters. Jane Green’s best yet. I raced through this.”—Jojo Moyes, author of Me Before You and Paris for One and Other Stories
“No one understands complicated families like Jane Green. In The Sunshine Sisters, she uses her trademark warmth and wit to bring us a deeply engaging story of parents, siblings, and lovers alike. She is the undisputed queen of the beach read.”—Emma Straub, author of Modern Lovers
“The Sunshine Sisters by author Jane Green is an absolutely fabulous read. I read it in one big delicious gulp. It’s a superbly entertaining story about sisters that will make you laugh and cry of course, but also ponder a dead-serious issue of what to do about Mom. It’s perfect for book clubs. I adored it! Well done, Jane!”—Dorothea Benton Frank, author of Same Beach, Next Year
“The Sunshine Sisters glitters…Intuitive and wise, this is Jane Green at her masterful best. You will love this story and share with your sister or your best friend, or both. I know I did.”—Adriana Trigiani, bestselling author of All the Stars in the Heavens
“I hesitate to call this a beach book, because once you start reading, you’ll want to take The Sunshine Sisters with you everywhere—the beach, the waiting room, the sofa, the front porch, the train…You get the idea. The story is shocking and dramatic, but always heartfelt and genuine in its multilayered portrayal of betrayal, redemption, and healing. Jane Green’s writing is impossible to resist.”—Susan Wiggs, author of Family Tree
