This month, our Reader's Fiction Display located in the lower level of the library features novels about sisters - by choice or by birth:

The Wedding Quilt: An Elm Creek Quilts Novel by Jennifer Chiaverini
I See You Everywhere by Julia Glass
The Daughters of Mars by Thomas Keneally
The Three Weissmanns of Westport by Cathleen Schine

Meditating on the weddings she has attended in Elm Creek Manor throughout the years on the morning of her daughter, Caroline's, wedding day, Sarah McClure evaluates the symbolic features on a painstakingly made wedding quilt designed to display the signatures of beloved guests.

I See You Everywhere by Julia Glass:
Follows the intertwined lives of two sisters--Louisa Jardine, the conscientious older sister who yearns for a good marriage, an artistic career, and a family; and her younger sister Clem, an iconoclastic, daring rebel--over the course of twenty-five years.

The Daughters of Mars by Thomas Keneally:
Joining the war effort as nurses in 1915, two spirited Australian sisters, carrying a guilty secret, become the friends they never were at home and find themselves courageous in the face of extreme danger as they serve alongside remarkable women during the first World War.

A modern tale inspired by Sense and Sensibility finds financially strapped literary sisters Miranda and Annie moving in with divorcée Betty in a run-down Connecticut beach cottage, where they find love among the suburban aristocracy.
