A witty, wise family saga from the bestselling author of Those Faraday Girls and Family Baggage.

Anna, Bett and Carrie were childhood singing stars - the Alphabet Sisters. As adults they haven't spoken for years. Not since Bett's fiancé left her for another sister ...

Now Lola, their larger-than-life grandmother, summons them home for a birthday extravaganza and a surprise announcement. But just as the rifts begin to close, the Alphabet Sisters face a test none of them ever imagined.

An unforgettable story of three women who learn that being true to themselves means being true to each other.

Sisters are always there for each other ... aren't they?
'Family members click and clash in this entertaining story with a poignant twist.' Australian Women's Weekly
