The Three Sisters

by May Sinclair

Shortly after discovering the work of Sigmund Freud, Sinclair began this study of middle-class women in a repressive society. It teaches the folly and futility of any human being attempting to decide the destinies of others, even of those nearest and dearest. It would be unfair to an admirable and discriminating character study that this is all there is to be found in what is perhaps the strongest book of Miss Sinclair's later period. The different characters of the three sisters who form the central interest, their contrasted views of love and marriage and of life in general taken all together form a sympathetic and probing study of feminine psychology.
