Kitty and Her Sisters Paperback
by Maureen Lee
Another wonderful Liverpool saga from bestselling author, Maureen Lee. At the age of nineteen, Kitty McCarthy has decided she is going to live a life less ordinary - although she doesn't know quite how to go about it.
What she does know is that she doesn't want to get married and raise children in Liverpool like her elder sisters: Claire, who is a mother-hen; easy-going Norah and elegant Aileen.
But Kitty's resolve is tested by the unexpected direction her life takes.
The combination of an impetuous youthful decision and a chance meeting twenty years later are to have momentous repercussions that will stay with her for ever, and it is her sisters who are the constant thread when other relationships come and go.
They know her best, they say, and in the end they know what's best for her - although Kitty would almost certainly disagree...

Review by LouiseLacy
** spoiler alert ** I was worried about this book being written in the first person but as the story progressed I found myself not wanting to put the book down. I found it queer that Kitty would fall pregnant when she knew that she didn't want children or marriage and I felt that her daughter was too forgiving. Overall I enjoyed the book and loved the little cottage that Kitty found herself living in.
