As Bright as Heaven

51i+sI45xNL._SX329_BO1,204,203,200_I have enjoyed the Susan Meissner books I have read (Secrets of a Charmed LifeA Fall of Marigolds). As Bright as Heaven was no exception. A great story with a nice, tidy, happy ending that you hoped for. So, not too deep, but a good vacation choice. It’s 1918 in Philadelphia and three sisters and their parents move into the city from Quakertown to live in their uncle’s funeral parlor. And then the Spanish flu hits with devastating consequences for Philadelphia and the family. Chapters alternate between the different sisters’ and mother’s point of view to tell the story. While it’s somewhat predictable, it was an enjoyable way to while away the hours.
