Mary Hogan's powerful and poignant debut novel about two sisters—opposites in every way—plus their mother and the secrets and lies that define them all.One family, two sisters, a lifetime of secrets . . .The third child in a family that wanted only two, Muriel Sullivant has always been an outsider. Short, dark-haired and round, she worships her beautiful blonde sister, Pia, and envies the close bond she shares with their mother, Lidia. Growing up in their shadow, Muriel believes that if she keeps all their secrets—and she knows plenty, outsiders always do—they will love her, too.But that was a long time ago. Now an adult, Muriel has accepted the disappointments in her life. With her fourth-floor walk-up apartment and entry-level New York City job, she never will measure up to Pia and her wealthy husband, their daughter, and their suburban Connecticut dream home. Muriel would like nothing better than to avoid her judgmental family altogether. One thing she does quite well.Until the day Pia shows up to visit and share devastating news that Muriel knows she cannot tell—a secret that will force her to come to terms with the past and help her see her life and her family in unexpected new ways.

Story of family. Muriel is the youngest of three children. She grows up being ignored, unwanted and unloved. Her older sister Pia is her mother's pride and joy. As an adult Muriel still has to deal with her mother's indifference, until a tragedy strikes the family. Go Muriel!

Great summer easy read. Sad at times but entertaining and well written.

Got halfway through the book because I had nothing else with me to read. Couldn't get into it and didn't finish it. I didn't find any of the characters at all likeable or even people I could identify with.
