It’s never too late to replenish the sisterly bond or to repair what may have been damaged. Sisterhood is a slippery slope, but once sisters reach adulthood, many of the woes and disagreements are left behind and all that remains is a good, lasting friendship. Well, perhaps it is good and lasting, but there will inevitably still be some hiccups (and disagreements) along the way. For the three Moore sisters, Les, Liz, and Rie, now in their mid-sixties, taking a three-week, three-country vacation together is bound to be challenging, fun, nerve-racking, and a whole lot of laughs after the usual stomp-fest that they're well known for – that being disagreeing, then stomping away from the disagreement. It’s 2019 and the sisters are bound for Ireland, England, and Scotland. The adventure hasn’t even begun and the narrator, middle sister Liz, is already full of anxiety and the what-ifs of what could possibly go wrong.

Elizabeth Moore Kraus's travel memoir, 3 Sisters 3 Weeks 3 Countries (Still Talking), is, as the subtitle suggests, “A Humorous and Heartfelt Memoir.” It’s also part travelogue as readers can sit back and enjoy the sights along with the sisters. The stories are told in a conversational manner, the author speaking right from the heart. There is dialogue, situations recounted before, during, and after the epic adventure, and best of all, lots of photographs of the threesome on their trip of a lifetime. The stories shared are epic in the bonding of friendship through family ties; sisterhood has never seen a stronger example. From sharing a room (something the three hadn’t done since childhood some fifty years earlier) to agreeing on simple things like what to post home to ease the luggage overload, what and where to eat, and what sights to see. Love and laughter, that’s what it’s all about. So, sit back and enjoy a lively and entertaining jaunt to three countries with three sisters.
