After the Prologue, the story begins in 1992 when 3 sisters were in their early/mid 20's and progresses through their lives up to 2007 when they are in their early 40's.

During the early chapters I didn't think that this was my kind of book, as I found the story a bit shallow. The women were young (and carrying on like young adults do), and the writing was light and easy. I did enjoy references to 90's movies titles, banana hair clips, Gorgio perfume.

Yet, as I kept reading what I thought was mindless chick lit, more and more depth was added to the characters, their lives, and the issues with which they were dealing. So much so that I found that I did like the book quite a bit.
