An unforgettable story of three generations of women from the best-selling author of A Taste for It, Upside Down Inside Out and Spin the Bottle.

Anna, Bett and Carrie Quinlan were childhood singing stars, the Alphabet Sisters. As adults they haven't spoken for years, ever since Bett's fiancé left her for another sister. Now Lola, their larger-than-life grandmother, summons them home for her 80th birthday extravaganza and a surprise announcement - she wants them to revive their singing careers and stage a musical she has written. Rehearsals get underway, and family secrets begin to be shared and revealed. But just as the rifts begin to close, the Alphabet Sisters face a test they never imagined.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kirsten | 2/14/2014

    " This book made me laugh out loud and then go through 4 tissues. Most cathartic. It's about 3 sisters who have a massive fight over a guy and then turn it all around. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bridget | 2/2/2014

    " I loved this book- I felt like I was one of the Alphabet Sisters. I finished reading this book in a hotel room on a business trip, which was fortunate, since this is the only book I have ever read that made me sob while reading. A full-out ugly cry. But what a story... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jessica | 2/2/2014

    " This book touched me and got me upset (in a good way). The ending had me crying my eyes out and it makes you think. I compliment the author. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Carrie | 2/1/2014

    " I liked this book at first, but then quickly lost interest. I trudged through until about the last 40 pages and returned it to the library. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jackie Kehl | 2/1/2014

    " A pleasant story about three sisters who have been estranged and are now reunited. Light reading. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeannie | 1/24/2014

    " Took a while to get into this, but once I spent some time with the characters I was hooked, and by the end I felt like part of my own family had passed. It was wonderfully tragic (does that make sense?)and kinda surprised me! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alexis | 1/11/2014

    " I wasn't that into it at first, but as I kept reading it got more interesting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Valarie | 1/11/2014

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janyse | 1/2/2014

    " Another sister novel that had me laughing out loud and sobbing at times. There are some FABULOUS elements of this book, but ultimately it's just a great, fast, easy read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Abby Sominski | 12/29/2013

    " I picked this book up because I like the cover, the story was ok but not hugely entertaining. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa | 12/29/2013

    " An easy, enjoyable read, if a little predictable. I still wanted to read it to the end, and wonder what happens to Lola in the future! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebecca Berinstein | 12/8/2013

    " A sweet story of sisters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katie Mangai | 11/12/2013

    " I have read this twice now and enjoyed it just as much the second time! Great holiday reading. Real and engaging characters with real family relationships. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Louise H | 11/4/2013

    " A nice idea, but fairly dull. And what was up with that ending? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lydia | 6/6/2013

    " Good read - I'd read this author again. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stacey | 6/3/2013

    " Sibling rivalry, broken hearts, lost loves and a meddling old woman, what's not to love about this classic novel set in the grape growing heartland of South Australia. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robin | 4/17/2013

    " The end was a mix of surprise and predictable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jacinta | 3/9/2013

    " This was a good book - not excellent, but good. It took a while for the story to 'get going' and I was about half way through reading the book before I became hooked in. The ending was unexpected - get your tissues ready! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jane | 1/11/2013

    " This book was entertaining and the characters were well developed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alison Smith | 12/29/2012

    " Australian chick-lit. A darn good read, very credible characters and a glorious OTT Granny. Recommended "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jen | 9/5/2012

    " I enjoyed this book about 3 sisters and their troubles with one another and their ultimate love for one another. I really liked the kooky grandma and the insecurities of all the characters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alisa | 2/20/2012

    " Sometimes going on living, and enjoying life, is the hardest part of dying. A redemptive story of love, loss, and sisterhood -- and how sometimes those that hurt us the most are the ones we need the most. And how all too often, the first person we need to forgive is ourselves. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alicia Starrett | 1/4/2012

    " The bond of sisters is unbreakable!! Made me appreciate mine and our ever changing relationships more! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Virginia | 12/9/2011

    " This book was easy to read, but not predicable! The story keeps your interest and takes turns you don't expect. Also put some perspective when thinking about my own life and making the most of what we have. Warning - a bit eatery near the end! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Di | 8/29/2011

    " Best book ever!!! I laughed (tear streaming), got mad, sad and had snot running crying sessions. Excellent!!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joanie | 7/24/2011

    " Chick lit/family drama/tearjerker Australian novel. Pretty good if you like that sort of thing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Charlene Ngo | 5/16/2011

    " I love this book, Great Family Drama, would make a wonderful Movie!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenny | 4/11/2011

    " Very relatable tale about fighting sisters and how hard it is to get over it. Threw me for a curve at the end though. Sad ending. I was all set for a happy ending. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Susan | 4/10/2011

    " Silly little family story, even though she snuck in some seriousness at the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lezlie | 3/10/2011

    " Very good story, although the ending came out of nowhere.. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sharon | 2/6/2011

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stacey | 1/23/2011

    " Sibling rivalry, broken hearts, lost loves and a meddling old woman, what's not to love about this classic novel set in the grape growing heartland of South Australia. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kate | 1/17/2011

    " I thought this was a cute story. The ending left me a little teary. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cindy | 1/11/2011

    " This was a good book about resolving relationships and getting over the past. It was about sisters resolving a bad past with a good but sad ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 11/14/2010

    " This book started off a bit slow, I but ended up really getting into it. I loved all of the characters and the storyline. The end is very emotional. Great read! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Stacey | 10/9/2010

    " A bit too much drama for one family. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa | 10/8/2010

    " I enjoyed listening to this on CD during my commute. Chic lit with well-drawn characters and a decent story set in Aus - a fave genre of mine ;-) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Karla | 8/12/2010

    " It was cute. Engaging chick lit, but nothing special. I like stories about the family dynamic. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carla | 7/28/2010

    " Sisters are forever and with any family member, you must reassess old hurts and resentments. As you mature, they become less important. The relationship will always be more important in the end. "
