The Pretty One
A Novel About SistersBook - 2013
For nearly forty years, The Hellinger sisters of Hastings-on-Hudson have played the roles set down by their loving but domineering mother Carol, but lately they aren't pulling off their roles the way they once did. Perri, upset over the lack of appreciation from her recently unemployed husband Mike, is engaging in a steamy text flirtation with a college fling. Pia, desperate to find someone to share in the pain and joy of raising her three-year-old daughter Lola, can't stop fantasizing about Donor #6103. And Gus, heartbroken over the loss of her girlfriend, finds herself drawn to Jeff, Mike's frat boy of a little brother. When a freak accident lands their mother to the hospital, each Hellinger sister is sent rocketing out of her comfort zone.
