Sisters and Husbands
Sequel to Sisters and Lovers

by Connie Briscoe


I can describe this book to you in just one word, WOW!

When you pick a book up at the book store and you open the front cover to get a brief synopsis of what the book is about, you decide at that moment if this is a book that you will enjoy reading.† We all read for many different reasons, I choose to read to escape everyday life.† It gives me a sense of adventure and allows me to refresh for the rest of the day.

This is one of those books that can provide just that, through an exhilarating storyline and the writing style of the author.

Beverly is about to get married.† Just this one life-changing event is enough to make you crazy, but you see, Beverly has been at this very point two other times.† Will she make it to the altar this time?

Charmaine is the middle sister.† She is the adventurous one in the family, so much so that she is on her fourth marriage to the man that she hopes will be the last.† She is going through some issues at the moment which stem from her husband and his teenage daughter Tiffany.† Tiffany lives in California, so she is not able to spend a lot of time with her dad.† So he is feeling those guilty feelings, which cause him to go in the opposite direction, overindulging the daughter he loves but trying to buy her affection.

Evelyn has been married for 25 years to the same man.† Her life is great and she has everything that she could imagine, and then all of a sudden everything changes.† Her husband Kevin is going through what many call a mid-life crisis, but he seems to have taken it to the extreme and has gone off the deep end.

How will this affect the upcoming nuptials of Beverly, the one who has run away at the last moment before?† Itís a compelling, well written story that moves you quickly through the book.† I am sure you will enjoy this story and the writing of Ms. Briscoe.
