summer with my sister spoke to me immediately, having just spent a week with my sister this was the perfect topic to read about. the other thing i noticed and loved was what i thought were similarities between the two main characters and my sister and myself. clare has the family while polly has the career. for as long as i can remember these are how my sister and me have described ourselves, she being the family focused one me loving my career.
the story is great mainly because of the idea of sisterhood, one loses everything and even after not speaking much over the last twenty years the other takes her in and helps her rebuild. but this wouldn't be chick lit with out he romance which comes in this one as an old flame and the local doctor :) i loved this book, it was nice to read, put a smile on my face and made me appreciate how lucky i am to have my sister :D
