9780060931070: The Wilder Sisters

The Wilder sisters fall in love with men when they least expect it--and most need it. Rose, the older, more practical one, is a widow who lives in New Mexico and has two ungrateful kids, a bored dog, and a horse with a bad back. Lily, the younger, more daring sister, lives in Southern California, where she has put her career before everything else--including love. Lily and Rose flee to their parents' ranch, for some emotional detox. But the two haven't spoken in five long years, and spending time togther is the last thing they'd planned on. Nor had either anticipated being so actively pusued by lovestruck men. Readers will be in their corner all the way as they rediscover the bonds of sisterhood and slowly open their hearts to love.

Product Description:

Already a widow in her forties, Rose wonders if she'll ever love again; her sister Lily, still single in her thirties, wonders if she'll ever love at all. They meet after many years and begin talking and learning as they face the two men who have followed them in pursuit of their hearts.

Review:

"A spirited romp of a novel.... Gut-busting, sometimes gut-wrenching. A companionable high desert tale for summer". -- Boston Globe

""The Wilder Sisters" is the richest, truest, funniest, sexiest, and most satisfying story about sisters I have read. The writing is luminous, the characters unforgettable, and the end brought me to tears of awe. I loved the world of the Wilder Sisters--a New Mexico filled with horses and audacious women and luscious food and superstition and saints. I longed to there myself, and felt a hollow ache when the story came to its end." -- Sara Davidson, author of "Cowboy: A Love Story" and "Loose Change: Three Women of the Sixties""This fascinating fiction will make you believe in storybook endings." --"Cosmopolitan""Watch your back, Larry McMurtry....Mapson's tale of two sisters raised on a horse ranch in northern New Mexico unfolds as unhurriedly as a Hank Williams ballad and pulls you into its catchy, sometimes raw and sexy, story with ease." --"Los Angeles Times"""The Wilder Sisters" is smart and funny....I predict that this book will be passed lovingly back and forth among many women (and men who want to understand them)." --"St. Louis Post-Dispatch""A delightful fifth novel....A clean, honest, easy, unadorned tale." --"Kirkus Reviews""Mapson is a straightforward, if sassy, analyst of human relations...."The Wilder Sisters" is a spirited romp of a novel....Gut-busting, sometimes gut-wrenching. A companionable high desert tale for summer." --"Boston Globe"
