Synopsis from Goodreads: The Butler family has had their share of trials—as sisters Althea, Viola, and Lillian can attest—but nothing prepared them for the literal trial that will upend their lives. Althea, the eldest sister and substitute matriarch, is a force to be reckoned with and her younger sisters have alternately appreciated and chafed at her strong will. They are as stunned as the rest of the small community when she and her husband Proctor are arrested, and in a heartbeat the family goes from one of the most respected in town to utter disgrace. The worst part is, not even her sisters are sure exactly what happened. As Althea awaits her fate, Lillian and Viola must come together in the house they grew up in to care for their sister’s teenage daughters. What unfolds is a stunning portrait of the heart and core of an American family in a story that is as page-turning as it is important.
My Review: This book has a ton of things going for it but for some reason it just wasn’t the book for me. I couldn’t connect to any of the characters and despite the intriguing story line and great writing I found myself getting bored. There may have been too many things going on in it, or I just might not have been in the right mind space for it. Despite my not loving it, I still think that a lot of people will really enjoy this family drama and should give it a chance if the synopsis sounds intriguing to them.
