The Meryl Streep Movie Club

#41 Book Read in 2012

The Meryl Streep Movie Club

Lolly owns an inn with her husband.  One New Year's Eve, her sister calls for a ride home from a party.  Lolly sends her husband.  There is an accident and Lolly's husband, sister and brother-in-law are killed.  Lolly ends up parenting her own daughter Kat, and her two nieces, Isabel and June, on her own.  As the girls grow apart from each other and Lolly, their lives are taking interesting turns.  Years later, Lolly calls the three together at the inn for an announcement.  Lolly tells them that she has cancer.  The three girls decide that their individual lives are not the focus now and they band together to take care of Lolly.

This book was a great read.  It was well written chick lit and had characters that readers would care about and feel invested in.  There were good romantic stories woven into the drama of the cancer and some mystery elements as well. The author did a nice job weaving in the films of Meryl Streep to represent what the characters were going through at those points of the book.   I enjoyed it a lot.
