The Story Sisters charts the lives of three sisters, Elv, Claire, and Meg. Each has a fate she must meet alone: one on a country road, one in the streets of Paris, and one in the corridors of her own imagination. Inhabiting their world are a charismatic man who cannot tell the truth, a neighbor who is not who he appears to be, a clumsy boy in Paris who falls in love and stays there, a detective who finds his heart's desire, and a demon who will not let go.

Where was the editor on this tedious story, that goes on and on without saying anything new? I found it difficult to care about any of the characters, even the good ones. Wish I would have read the reviews more carefully before using my credits on this book. I may try earlier books by this author, as some of those are reviewed quite complementarily.
