The Weird Sisters by Eleanor Brown

I had read a lot about the Shakespearean parallels in this new novel with an intriguing title.  And I had a student who was reading the book for her independent novel project, so I decided not to put it aside once I had started reading it.  It is a sisters book - Cordelia, Bianca and Rosalind.  They grow up in a college town in Ohio (?) under the scholarship of their Shakespeare quoting professor father.  When their mother develops breast cancer, the adult sisters have  a reason to reunite.  I was a little disappointed in the way some of the conflicts were resolved, but the plot was clever enough to keep me interested.
