Zusy's debut novel introduces three adult sisters faced with the health crisis of the middle sister. Gabra Zackman gives Maggie, who tells the story, emotions that range from confidence to frustration to self-pity. Maggie must move the ailing sister, Ginny, who also has intellectual disabilities, from Maryland to New York to more closely monitor her care. Maggie is also navigating a broken marriage, two sons, and a freelance career. Ginny's voice is flat but adamant as she fights to keep her independence in spite of her physical and mental limitations. Eldest sister Bets, living in California, appears rarely, using that distance to avoid the messy work of relationships. Immigrant nannies Philomena and Lika are given appropriate accents as they provide nonjudgmental care for their challenging patient. N.E.M. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2023]
