Bottom Line: Read It!
Synopsis: Australian triplets Lyn, Cat and Gemma Kettle are about to turn thirty-four. One of them is pregnant, one has just had her life turned upside down, and one is only just keeping hers from skidding off the fast lane. Meanwhile their divorced parents have been behaving very oddly indeed.
In this family comedy, we follow the Kettle sisters through their tumultuous thirty-fourth year as they deal with sibling rivalry and secrets, revelations and relationships, unfaithful husbands and unthinkable decisions, and the fabulous, frustrating life of forever being part of a trio.
Review: Liane Moriarty is a master at building tension, keeping a reader turning the pages, and incorporating equal parts heartbreaking poignancy and laugh-out-loud situations from page one through The End. Three Wishes is no exception.
In Three Wishes, Moriarty explores themes of sisterhood, family, marriage and motherhood with the kind of skill that makes for a truly great book.
This is a fun, funny, and touching story—the kind that has you thinking about the characters when you’re not reading, and feeling strongly about them when you are. It’s good to the last page, especially with Moriarty’s signature twists.
