Things I Want My Daughters To Know by Elizabeth Noble

'What's up?' Lisa asked her sister. 'You seem cross.'
'I am cross. You told Jennifer about Dad.'
'How do you know that?'
'Because she told Mark.'
'She told you?' Lisa turned to Mark.
"Barbara must say a final farewell to her 4 daughters. But how can she find the words? And how can she leave them when they each have so much growing up still to do?

Take Lisa, in her thirties but terrified of commitment - or brittle, unhappily married Jennifer. Amanda, the traveller, is always a little apart from her sisters and teenage Hannah faces adult life without a mother at her side.

Barbara's answer is to write each daughter a letter, finally expressing the hopes, fears, dreams and secrets she couldn't always voice. These words will touch the girls in different - sometimes shocking - ways, unlocking emotions and passions to set them on their own journey of discovery through life." - book's abstract

So, I bought this book in Times Bookstore in KK and the price is RM39.55. I think I bought this book because if you buy this one with the sticker "Merry Christmas" (since it's almost Christmas that time) you'll get a discount price or something like that.

When I first read the summary, I go, "Oooh.. This sounds like 'PS.I Love You' book" except this one is a story of a mother writing to her daughters. The first few pages were so good that I want to know what the mother wants to tell to all of them. But...I find this book not to my liking. I THOUGHT I would love this book but I don't. I like few parts only. The ending and the drama.I think this book is for mothers.

The characters (sisters) are all like separated. The eldest is so busy with the 'Should she or should she not', the second needs to deal with her marriage that used to be happy and also her husband's father. And the third feels a little left out from the family because she's 'different' and the youngest one is struggling to be a teenager so she could fit in.

All in all, I would give this book...
