Publisher's Description

Bestselling author Angela Elwell Hunt returns to the genre—contemporary women’s fiction—that has brought her some of her greatest success with this novel about three sisters who have struggled with being committed in their marriages.

Three grown Southern sisters have ten marriages between them—and more loom on the horizon—when Ginger, the eldest, wonders if she’s the only one who hasn’t inherited what their family calls “the Grandma Gene”: the tendency to like the casualness of courtship better than the intimacy of marriage. Could it be that her two sisters are fated to serially marry, just like their seven-times wed grandmother, Mrs. Lillian Irene Harper Winslow Goldstein Carey James Bobrinski Gordon George? It takes a “girls only” weekend, closing up Grandma’s treasured beach house for the last time, for the sisters to really unpack their family baggage, examine their relationship DNA, and discover the true legacy their much-marrying grandmother left behind…

Author Bio

With more than four million copies of her books sold worldwide, Angela Hunt is the bestselling author of more than one hundred titles, including The Tale of Three Trees, The Note, and The Nativity Story. Her nonfiction book Don’t Bet Against Me, written with Deanna Favre, spent several weeks on the New York Times bestseller list. Angela frequently teaches writing workshops at schools and writers’ conferences, and she served as the keynote speaker at an American Christian Fiction Writers’ national conference. She and her husband make their home in Florida.

    I've come to expect excellence from Angela Hunt but this one is over and above. It should be mandatory reading. I'll be digesting the truths in this book for a long time.

    This review was written for The Fine Art of Insincerity.
    Every woman can identify with one of (or all) three characters in this book. Each one suffers from insecurity in one form or another, and look for security in the wrong places. Ginger thinks it comes from being in control with a plan, the one with responsibility/duty. Penny looks for it in new love and leaving before they leave you. Rose thinks it lies in having children . As they come together they find out that what they believe about themselves and their siblings is not the truth, and that healing comes in places they never thought to look.

    This review was written for The Fine Art of Insincerity.
    I started reading The Fine Art of Insincerity by Angela Hunt just after breakfast and was done before bedtime (and I worked a 4-hour shift in between). I just could not put this book down. The individual stories of the three sisters had me very distressed and as I kept turning pages, I wished I could put the book down and forget about the heartache they were each experiencing. Impossible! These sisters told stories shared by countless women and it was refreshing to find the characters real, honest and raw in their humanity and struggles. There were no pretty bows tied up at the end of the book, just ribbon and the hope that they each could find a way to relearn how to tie it.

    The setting of St. Simons Island provided an idyllic retreat for the reader while it gave the characters the isolation necessary to deal with their issues without distraction. The characters were fully developed and I enjoyed how each chapter was written from one sister's perspective - you got to understand each of them as individuals and the reasons behind their responses to each other. I am not as big a fan of modern fiction as I am of historical fiction, but found this book a great read. The discussion questions could facilitate deep relationship-building and ministry opportunities with book club members. While this book had many difficult moments, it was well worth reading.

    I give this book 5 stars out of 5.

    I received this book free from Glass Road Public Relations. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

    This review was written for The Fine Art of Insincerity.
    Ready to travel to St. Simons Island? Three sisters, Ginger, Rosemary, and Pennyroyal are about to embark on a journey of healing. Their grandmother passes away and leaves behind her home for the three sisters who visited there every summer. Sounds pleasant, right? Not at all. Instead of insincerity, I found more insecurity. We so often want the life of another. The grass is always greener somewhere else. We can even look at our siblings with envy and strife.

    These sisters have one weekend to clean out their grandmother's home, take what they would like, and give the rest to charity. They all walk away with money, but they have earned so much more. Something more valuable that anything of material gain. As they have trouble brewing in their marriages, they more so have trouble figuring out just who they are. The tragedy is that theses sisters don't even really know one another. They have been so caught up in themselves that they forgot what's really important.

    Angela Hunt knows how to bring life to a story. Within each chapter you get a different sisters perspective on things. You see them travel to St. Simons Island thinking they are there to take care of their grandmother's things, but God has them there for different reasons. In this one weekend, they clean out more than the house. They open up like never before and begin to share. They take a look back so that they learn how to move forward.

    What did I like? Well, I like how they all thought they knew what love is. They all three had their own perspective. As we all have our own love language, these sisters finally realize how to love each other and more importantly how to love themselves. It is a journey we should all take. Think your the only one with troubles brewing? We all have them and Angela Hunt brings to light the real issues that touch women and the trials that families face today. We can learn to dig out all that stuff not needed so we can find room for what is most important. Love.

    This book was a gift from Glass Road Publications for it's review.

    This review was written for The Fine Art of Insincerity.
    hree sisters, nine husbands between them, secrets and regrets all collide in this riveting novel by Angela Hunt.

    This novel deals with a myriad of issues - in fact I was surprised by how thoroughly each of the characters were developed and how vivid their issues were presented. Three sisters raised part time by a grandmother who was married numerous times come together to clean out her house. Little did any of them know that this one weekend would change their lives forever. That for the first time they will be forced to drop pretenses and face the pain of tragedy in their lives.

    Ginger thinks she has her life all put together - everything in its place. She sees her sisters as her responsibility - but then why shouldn't she. After her mother's death she was their care-giver.

    Penny is the epitome of southern charm and at 49 years old still looks fit and in shape. Searching for love, romance and happiness she changes husbands like she changes shoes - always finding that they just don't fit right. Following in her grandmother's footsteps she justifies each divorce and remarriage. Bored with her seemingly dull husband she is on the prowl again.

    Rosie, the youngest of the three is desperately searching for her grandmother's secret for hanging on. A thick impenetrable cloud of despair has beaten her down. She arrives at the cottage that weekend with plans of her own. Detached and set on saying her farewells she spends her time dropping hints to her sisters.

    Ginger's life is devastated by a painfully close deception, Penny's version of truth is challenged and she is forced to make a choice, and Rose must finally decide to face her deepest hurt or perish to it.

    In their grandmother's album the girls find a truth about God that will set them free from the bondage each of them is tied to.

    "I came her hoping to find Grandma's survival secrets. Maybe the biggest of them has been staring me in the face for a long time....."

    I received this book from Glass Roads Publication. Special thanks to the publisher, Howard, and Glass Roads Publications for this review copy.
