From the Editor

When I was growing up, my parents’ most common refrain was, “Go outside.” Which really meant, “Leave us alone for heaven’s sake.” Their child-rearing philosophy could easily be called benign neglect. This sort of parenting wasn’t uncommon in the freewheeling “me” decade, otherwise known as the 1970s, and I immediately recognized it in Sisters One, Two, Three—it’s what pulled me right into the heart of the book.

When we first meet the Tangle family, we see four children left to their own devices. Their father is a sweet, well-meaning man, but it’s Glory, their unpredictable mother, who spins at the family’s center. She’s imperious, bossy, a bit dotty, and truly one of the most aggravating, yet forgivable, characters I’ve ever met. Glory is completely preoccupied with dreams of someday becoming a famous actress, and it’s this self-absorption that sets in motion a terrible tragedy.

The sisters spend the next four decades trying to make sense of the circumstances surrounding the tragedy. Meanwhile, Glory tries to make up for what happened without ever admitting any wrongdoing. Secrets, denial, and forgiveness intertwine, begging the questions: What happens if you hold on to your children too tightly? And what happens if you loosen that hold too soon?

Editorial Reviews

Review

“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.” Publishers Weekly

“An emotionally gripping portrait of a family’s secrets and confessions…Star brings all the members of the Tangle clan to life—these are multifaceted, complex characters with remarkable depth and nuance. Readers will enjoy seeing childhood quirks resurface in the Tangle adults, and fans of Jamie Brenner and Elizabeth Kelly will adore this compelling multigenerational story.” Booklist

“All too often when books jump between past and present, the result is confusion. Here, it’s illumination as Star smartly shows us who these characters were as girls and why they became the women they are.” —NJ.com

“A consistently compelling and entertaining read from cover to cover, Sisters One, Two, Three clearly showcases author Nancy Star's genuine flair for deftly created characters and original storytelling.” Midwest Book Review

“Heartbreaking and beautiful…” Wilkes-Barre Times Leader

“An extraordinarily moving, beautifully written novel, Sisters One, Two, Three is a searing portrait of a family haunted by tragedy and fractured by the toxic power of secrets. As the story progresses, we grow to know and love the fierce and eccentric Tangles, a family at once familiar and like no other. I was riveted from the first page.” —Christina Baker Kline, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Orphan Train

“With delightful wit and the prowess of an expert story teller, Star offers profound insight into the maternal heart in this deftly braided tale of the utterly original Tangles. Sisters One, Two, Three begs to be read in one big gulp—and will leave you with a lasting understanding of the treacherous balance between love and autonomy.” —Lisa Gornick, author of Louisa Meets Bear

“Witty, compelling, and wise, Sisters One, Two, Three is the kind of novel I always crave but rarely find. Glory Tangle's relationship with her children, both as kids and as grown ups, is as real as it gets. She's a fantastic character, a match for the surprises to be found in the perfectly evoked island setting of Martha's Vineyard. I really loved each of the three sisters, too, and was very nervous for all of them! Nancy Star, thank you so much for the hours I spent in these pages.” —Alice Elliott Dark, author of In The Gloaming and Think of England

“Nancy Star’s gripping novel of mothers and daughters and sisters shows us how we can never escape our families—and why that may be our salvation. Full of surprising twists and deep emotional insights, Sisters One, Two, Three will keep you glued to your beach chair, casting worried glances at those little clouds threatening to gather into a storm. This book will transform the way you see your own family's past and its future along with the way you experience the power of now.” —Pamela Redmond Satran, author of Younger

“What is it that fascinates us about the bonds between sisters? There have been many great stories about that special bond and this is no exception. Enter the Tangle sisters, held together by love, common experience, and a web of secrets. From cautious Ginger, to adventurous Callie, to busy bee Mimi, you won’t be able to help seeing yourself in this family, the things that pull it apart and ultimately tie it back together. Set some time aside to read this gem; you won’t regret it.” —Catherine McKenzie, bestselling author of Hidden and Fractured
