    From the author of the best-selling Three Junes comes an intimate new work of fiction: a tale of two sisters, together and apart, told in their alternating voices over 25 years. Louisa Jardine is the older one, the conscientious student, precise and careful: the one who yearns for a good marriage, an artistic career, a family. Clem, the archetypal youngest, is the rebel: uncontainable, iconoclastic, committed to her work but not to the men who fall for her daring nature.

    A User says: "Voice narration this author hasn't mastered"
    "Shallow"
    Overall

    I don't often feel compelled to write a review, but since Audiobooks recommended this one to me(presumably based upon the previous books I've read), I feel that I must expound a bit about how this book goes nowhere. If you like your reader to read to you, using a "Valley Girl" accent, tinged throughout with a hint of sarcasm, then this is the read for you. I don't think the author really intended that kind of "voice" for the main characters (two sisters), though the entire story strikes me as a shallow romance, presented in the form of these two sisters commenting upon and analyzing each other's every move, mood and intent. Funny thing, I've never ordered shallow romances before! I only made it through 4.5 hours.
