“The always insightful and engaging Rice explores the mystical bond between sisters as she portrays families learning what it means to love and forgive.”—Booklist


From the Hardcover edition.

Kurzbeschreibung

New York Times bestselling author Luanne Rice explores the complex emotional equations of love and loyalty that hold together three pairs of remarkable sisters, in an unforgettable story of loss, redemption, and forgiveness
 
The storm off Mackinac Island that engulfed Maura Shaw’s husband and elder daughter,Carrie, also swept away the illusion of her life as the perfect midwestern wife and mother. Now, after years away, Maura has returned to Rhode Island to teach English at the fabled Newport Academy and to seek a new beginning. Newport has never failed to infuse Maura with a sense of mystery and hope, but ever since the accident, her younger daughter, fourteen-year-old Beck, has retreated into the safe, predictable world of mathematics. Without Carrie, Beck has lost half of herself—the half that would have fit into the elite private school she and her brother, Travis, will attend. The half that made things right. Sixteen-year-old Travis is also struggling to adjust—juggling a long-distance first love and an attraction to a girl with a wicked sparkle in her eye. And for Maura, ghosts linger here—an unresolved breach with her own beloved sister and a long-ago secret that may now have the power to set her free. . . .

HASH(0x90cfc918) von 5 Sternen Almost makes me want to look at my son's geometry book! 19. April 2009
Von M. Smiley - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Who knew that math would make a good idea for a great read! Combine the math with the close relationships of two generations of sisters and Luanne Rice rates an A plus in my book! As we follow grieving mom Maura Shaw moving her two children Beck and Travis from Ohio to Newport, RI, we learn more about the death of her husband and what caused her oldest daughter Carrie to run away. The sister plot thickens as there is also a deep rift between Maura and her own sister Katherine, some sister ghosts at the academy, and two other rich sisters at the academy. Although I've never had a love for math, this book made me appreciate the different angles, circles, triangles that love and life can take! I also immediately called my sister after finishing "The Geometry of Sisters" - time for bonding and a girl's weekend! Luanne Rice doesn't disappoint again - I love her books!

HASH(0x91b16270) von 5 Sternen Lost in the math 3. Juni 2009
Von L. Phipps - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Although Ms. Rice can write and makes her books very compelling this one was flat. I never felt I knew any of the characters well and the ending was rushed just ready to be over. None of the characters you really knew or cared about. It is an easy read and takes very little time to get through but this is not her best work. I thought the math part of the story was just boring.

HASH(0x9107d174) von 5 Sternen Utterly awful! 30. August 2010
Von Mary Wittler - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
As a fan of Beach Girls, I couldn't wait to read this book, but it didn't take long to realize that this book was poorly conceived and poorly written. If Luann Rice is to be judged based on this book, I can honestly say that I will never pick up another of her books.

When Ally comes to visit Travis and they go out to the club. Ally is described as wearing a blue strapless dress. A mere seven pages later, Ally and Travis leave the club and they are making out in the car, when somehow Travis manages to "slip her straps off of her shoulders". Seriously??? WHAT straps?

From leaves that call out Carrie's name to her sister, to a mother who casually misplaces a notebook that contains clues to the whereabouts of her missing daughter, to a young mother who cannot wait another minute to venture out on foot with her baby even though there is a serious snow storm in progress. Plausablity is stretched beyond any reasonble limit.

Unrealistic plot lines, ridiculous characters, and flawed writing make this one of the worst books that I have ever read...and I read a lot of books. I strongly suggest that Ms. Rice take more time to iron out obvious defects in storyline, and character development and write fewer books.

HASH(0x9188d1f8) von 5 Sternen great read 19. Mai 2009
Von Daisy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
While I thought the beginning of the book was slow, Luanne Rice develops wonderful characters that you pull for over time... The story opens with the remnants of a family... and over the course of the story, you slowly watch them build their lives from the ashes of their old family. As any family knows whose been through tragedy, you are never the same. I was captivated by their family and how they struggled to move on. This was a great read, if you love Light of the Moon or Dance with Me... you will love this book. I can't wait for Deep Blue Sea for Beginners.

HASH(0x90dac870) von 5 Sternen So So 22. Dezember 2010
Von CA Book Lover - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
At first you think eldest daughter Carrie has actually disappeared off the face of the earth on the day their father died, the family agonized because she is gone. Then you learn she has kept tenuous contact with them through postcards from various cities vs being abducted or dead. That would be real agony, this is only feeling lonely for her and being unable to understand why she left and doesn't come back. By a little past page 300, when Carrie again flees on sight of her mother, now that they all are back in the same general geographical area, her motivation seems muddled and repetitive. The youngest daughter, Beck, is a mathematical whiz, why the story is called THE GEOMETRY OF SISTERS, a rather unfortunate choice for readers who don't want to hear about math in fiction. [The book was a gift, I'd never have bought it.] Perhaps done by the author to encourage girls to do well in math, but an off-putting theme. Women who read this sort of fiction are generally past school years, and didn't like math in the first place, even if they made good grades in it. Beck also has become a kleptomaniac over the loss of her father and sister. Or so we are told. Travis, the son, seems to be the only thoroughly convincing, normal or sympathetic character. Overall, slow-paced and oddly-motivated on the part of the mother in her youth; and her husband's death makes it convenient to take up again with the old lover she ditched long ago.
