Three estranged sisters. Six months to come back together.
When Georgie, Iris and Nola’s mother died and their father disappeared into his grief, the sisters made a pact: they would always be there for one another, no matter what.
Now, decades later, they haven’t spoken for years and can barely stand to be in the same room. As his health declines, their father comes up with a plan to bring them back to one another. In his will, he states that before they can claim their inheritance, they must spend six months living together in their childhood home in the village of Ballycove, Ireland, and try to repair their broken relationships.
As the months’ progress, old resentments boil over, new secrets threaten to come out and each sister must decide what matters more: their pride, or their family. Can they overcome their past and find a way to love each other once more?

My Thoughts…

Three estranged sisters reunited at their father’s funeral; he wanted them to rekindle their childhood closeness, so he made their inheritance conditional on their living and working together where they grew up. The three sisters, Georgie, Iris and Nola, all have secrets in their lives they don’t want to reveal, and the tension of their first meeting and initial time together is palpable.

The character-driven storytelling is excellent. It has believably flawed characters who grow with self-realisation and renewal of sisterly bonds. The gradual revealing of past hurts lets the reader understand why the sisters behave as they do. The setting on the west coast of Ireland is crucial to the story. It weaves its reflective magic in the sisters’ lives and helps them, and their relationships heal.

The Gin Sisters’ Promise is the perfect story to escape with, a medley of heartbreak and heartwarming moments.
