Publisher's Summary

The women of the Weller family - matriarch Lolly, cousins Kat, June, and Isabel - have not had the easiest of relationships over the years. The cousins have gone their separate ways, but now, just as each faces a crossroads in her life, they are summoned home by Lolly for some earth-shattering news. As the women spend their first summer together in years, home truths and buried secrets begin to emerge. To ease the tension, Lolly proposes a series of movie nights dedicated to her favourite actress, Meryl Streep, and as the four women sit and discuss the parallels between films and real life, they gradually help one another confront the past and make difficult decisions about the future.

Art Imitating Life

Great idea for a book as I tend to liken my life to the numerous movies I've seen.

Two sisters and a cousin are brought back to their childhood home by their ailing aunt. What was once a building best avoided, filled with sad memories, gradually becomes a safe haven as the girls discover some home truths through the wisdom of the great characters Meryl Streep's film-a-thons provide!

Pleasant

Just pleasant - not especially memorable. I probably wouldn't have made the effort to read it myself but it was beautifully read.
