About this title


The Book Sisters is a character-centered family saga which has been compared to the best films of Wes Andersen (The Royal Tannenbaums). Told in vignettes, The Book Sisters chronicles the lives of the six Book sisters - Victoria, Veronica, Violet, Vera, Virginia, and Viveca. After their father's horrific experiences during World  War II, Vern Book wants nothing more than the peace and quiet joy that come from raising corn and a family on a farm in Iowa.  Unfortunately, life ambushes them. As the world around them is torn apart by war and civil strife, as assassinations and riots erupt, as Nature ravages his fields and Valley breaks his heart, Vern watches his six daughters throw his dreams away. His solution is to drink himself to death, which he does, taking Valley with him. Once their parents are gone, the sisters are free to explore their own lives, to determine who they will become.
