My forthcoming novel The Trip of a Lifetime is the third of my novels to feature Lola Quinlan and her family (though I promise it is a standalone story if you haven’t read the earlier ones.) The first Quinlan family story, The Alphabet Sisters, was published in 2004 and has since appeared in many languages and with many covers. I love seeing just how different it looks from country to country and edition to edition.
The cover blurb reads:
Anna, Bett and Carrie Quinlan were childhood singing stars – the Alphabet Sisters. As adults they haven’t spoken for years. Not since Bett’s fiance left her for another sister…
Now Lola, their larger-than-life grandmother, summons them home for a birthday extravaganza and a surprise announcement. But just as the rifts begin to close, the Alphabet Sisters face a test none of them ever imagined.
An unforgettable story of three women who learn that being true to themselves means being true to each other.

‘McInerney is a dab hand at getting her characters exactly right. They are utterly believable, often loveable and familiar.’ – West Australian
