'Her face in that subdued light seemed as fragile as the mist that rolled in before dawn and hovered magically before it delivered itself to the thirsty foliage. and 'I can’t stop thinking of you.

SBR: Three Daughters is interesting in the beginning. Despite initial promise, the length and multi-generational story is the undoing of the book. To read or not to read: Skip, unless you really have lots of time to kill. Worth a Read by Cato the Reader.

I wish I could give this book 4.5 stars,,, instead of 4. it was nearly a 5 star book for me. I know it's VERY long, but I managed to finish this book in less than 2 weeks, only reading at night. It is a beautiful family saga that will leave you wanting to know even more...in a way, it reminds me of The Thornbirds. The book takes you through time as experienced by 3 generations of a Palestinian family. This family is so tied to their family traditions & culture that the women are truly not free to be or to love who they want...the author does a brilliant job of fleshing out these characters so that you are actually invested in their choices & decisions. It's a story of love, tradition, regret, heartbreak, sacrifice, secrets, revenge, and even triumph. It reminds us that the ties that bind us can shape our lives in ways we may not have the choice to refute. What happens when we don't want to be like our mothers, or when we have daughters who are so different than us that we truly don't understand them? Can being born into a certain family mean our lives are already predetermined for us? For anyone who enjoys the kind of story that will leave you wanting to get back to it & find out what happens next in the lives of these characters, this book is a great escape. I will remember it as one of the books that kept me up at night, wanting to read just a few pages more...

This book has some really great parts. It's a beautiful story of mothers and daughters and how family and environment shape us as individuals and as a part of a larger group.

However, this book would be great and then tedious. I would be so engrossed in it and then find myself extremely bored w/it. It's a long book and it felt at times like it was written by two different people. Some times the descriptions of people, place and things were spot on. Other times it droned on with way too much not needed information and still other times a random name or place or sentence would be thrown out w/no description or any idea what was going on. At the beginning of the book there was zero sex. Half way through the book it became graphic descriptive sex. I'm okay with sex or no sex in my book but do prefer a little continuity in how the writer writes.

After 700 odd pages you do become engrossed in the characters lives and myself personally enjoy some closure. The book just ended. It didn't end in a way you would think a sequel would be coming it just kind of died. You know those books where the author writes and writes and then seems to say "oh look I wrote 700 pages and I'm tired of writing this book so I'm going to stop" and they do and your left wanting/needing more. In all honesty I probably would not have read this book if I would have known I would be left wanting to know more so bad. So, heads up on that.

I am a person who tends to loose herself in a good book. It was a delight to loose myself in these characters and their lives. This novel envelopes readers in the sounds, scents, and emotions of the world of Miriam, Nadia, and Nijmeh. By the end I felt quite an attachment to many of the characters outside of these three daughters. Nearing the end of the novel, I was desperate for a satisfying ending and thought I knew what was best for the characters. Ms Baehr does deliver a satisfying ending, although it is not quite the one I imagined. I reread the ending and reflected on the lives of these women and the other deeply interesting characters all night before coming to the conclusion that this book is really about suffering. One theme is how do we deal with deep suffering in life and not let it crush us. If you are looking for a feel good novel, this is not it. If you're looking for a compelling story that highlights the strength and resilience of women,this is a great novel for you! This is also a great novel for romance lovers, since there are quite a few steamy sciences. As a 27 year old mother of one girl, who lost her mother to Leukemia 3 years ago, this book was a great reminder of the blessing that women, especially family, is to a person's life. It also highlights the beauty found in a loving marriage, with which I am also blessed. I highly recommend this novel to all women.

The length of this novel is what drew my attention and the writing is what made it impossible to put down. The setting was brought to life vividly with care given to the smallest details. It opened my eyes to a beautiful and different culture. And the importance of family is the thread that weaves all aspects of this marvelous story together. Read and enjoy!
