After a tragic accident on Martha’s Vineyard, keeping secrets becomes a way of life for the Tangle family. With memories locked away, the sisters take divergent paths. Callie disappears, Mimi keeps so busy she has no time to think, and Ginger develops a lifelong aversion to risk that threatens the relationships she holds most dear.
When a whispered comment overheard by her rebellious teenage daughter forces Ginger to reveal a long-held family secret, the Tangles’ carefully constructed web of lies begins to unravel. Upon the death of Glory, the family’s colorful matriarch, and the return of long-estranged Callie, Ginger resolves to return to Martha’s Vineyard and piece together what really happened on that calamitous day when a shadow fell over four sun-kissed siblings playing at the shore. Along with Ginger’s newfound understanding come the keys to reconciliation: with her mother, with her sisters, and with her daughter.
At turns heartbreaking, humorous, and hopeful, Sisters One, Two, Three explores not only the consequences of secrets—even secrets kept out of love—but also the courage it takes to speak the truth, to forgive, and to let go.

Sisters One, Two, Three begins with the Tangle family. There are four children: Ginger, Mimi, Charlie, and Callie. The parents are want-to-be-actress Glory, and Solly, who owns a toy business. During a pivotal summer long ago (early 1970's from details like Space Food Sticks and psychadelic signs), Glory and the four children travel to Martha's Vineyard. Tragedy occurs and changes the family.
The story flashes back to the past and forward to the present, with cautious Ginger, busy Mimi, and always adventurous Callie. I found these characters well drawn and interesting; I had a hard time putting the book down at night, and will admit that I stayed up several nights reading past my bedtime.
This is a beautifully written book, with dialogue that rings true and a plot that moves in threads that connect as the story moves on. It is a moving story of family secrets and love.
I really enjoyed reading Sisters One, Two, Three, and will look for more books by Nancy Star. Readers who enjoy women's fiction, family drama, and compelling storytelling will enjoy this book.
