THE SONGBIRD SISTERS

Rachael Herron Penguin Random House

Third and last in the trilogy of the Darling sisters – formerly a massively successful singing group disbanded and acrimoniously estranged by tensions of family tragedy and trauma, this volume takes up the story of youngest sister and wild child, Lana. A decade on, Adele and Molly have reconciled and are both back in their home town running various family enterprises and Lana decides to forego her solo career and revisit the family crucible as she has royalties pouring into her bank account and independent wealth allowing her the freedom to leave off touring and explore other options – of course nothing unfolds as per script and the trip is nothing if not entertaining.
