She, Myself & I, Whitney Gaskell's third novel, is the story of three very different sisters. Paige is a high powered divorce attorney who has just gone through a divorce of her own. Sophie is married, expecting her first child and suffering from raging hormones. Mickey has just graduated from college and her plans for medical school seem like a good idea in her parents' eyes only.
Speaking of their parents . . . the Cassels had a rocky volatile marriage which ended in a wilder divorce. Now, suddenly, they seem to have forgotten what led them down the path to divorce hell and are not only friendly but in love . . . more stress for the Cassel sisters.
This book is written in three sections, each narrated by a different sister. Such structure gives the reader a chance to know each sister quite well as we see things through their eyes. We even get to see each sister's relationship from each sister's point of view. This setup works very well with this book as it feels like three novellas entwined as one story in a three dimensional sort of way.
Gaskell does a remarkable job creating believable characters. Yes, the Cassel sisters do dumb things but they learn from their mistakes, and they evolve through the story. Readers will find something to relate to in each sister's persona and experiences, even though they're very different.
She, Myself & I is a laugh out loud page turner from Whitney Gaskell. It's a smart witty read with just the right amount of seriousness and a healthy dose of reality. Curl up in a comfortable chair with your favorite beverage and quilt; Whitney Gaskell supplies the good book to make it a "calgon-take-me-away" weekend.
