It's December 21, and the Yancey sisters have been called home. When the girls were young, holidays at their family farm meant a tinsel-garnished tree, the scent of simmering food, and laughter ringing through the house. But as the years unfolded, family bonds fractured, and the three sisters scattered and settled into separate lives. Until now.
The Yancey sisters are coming to spend the holidays with their mother. They're also coming to bury their father. Claire, the youngest, a free spirit who journeyed to California, returns first. Then comes Julia, the eldest, a college professor with a teenage son of her own. And finally there's Maya, the middle child, who works so hard to be the perfect mother and wife.
During the sisters' week together, old conflicts surface, new secrets emerge, and the limits and definitions of family are tested. And as the longest night of the year slips by and brightening days beckon, the sisters will have to answer one question: when you're a sister, aren't you a sister forever?

"Emotionally honest and psychologically astute, The Sister Season is ultimately an uplifting story about the pull of the past, the need for forgiveness, and the redemptive power of familial love." ---Liza Gyllenhaal, author of A Place for Us
Obviously the performer isn't from Missouri. At times
The main character screeched and at times I couldn't hear her. Irritating accents. I got to chapter 3 and am done.
I liked the story line and it kept me interested until the end. It's sort of depressing but interesting. I liked the narrator. She did a good job portraying the characters.
It is up there with my favorites though I tried to read it before; I think it was a timing audio!
Each character had their own essence and all were favorites!
I didn't have a favorite I loved them all.
I would leave it as is! Excellent title!!
If you have trouble getting into this book try later; it's well worth the listen!
