Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0743255860, Paperback)Georgia "Peachy" Archer always thought she was happy with her choices in life: quitting college, marrying young, raising two boys in the same small town where she grew up. But just as Peachy's life is beginning to settle into a careful routine, her sister's life begins to dangerously unravel.
Beth Archer chose a different life: fancy apartment in Manhattan, fancy friends, making lots of money. She's been on her own since she was a teenager, and she's still on her own, outgrowing dress styles and boyfriends faster than Peachy can inherit them. But on a visit home one weekend, Beth upends everything Peachy thought she knew about being happy.
In the tradition of Jennifer Weiner and Melissa Bank, The Almost Archer Sisters is a refreshingly honest portrait of sisterhood, motherhood, and female mayhem in its many states of grievance, grace, and forgiveness.

There were never such devoted sisters, or ones so hilariously and heartbreakingly conflicted about loyalty. Thoughtful, married-mom Georgie "Peachy" Archer and big-city-sister Beth, grow up on a Canadian farm with their hairdressing, Vietnam draft-dodging dad, Lou, and share the pain of their mom's suicide. But that's where the similarities end. They have always supported each other---until Peachy's husband Beau cheats on her with her sister. That's when Peachy leaves Beth to cope on the farm and goes to live Beth's life on the fast track in NYC for a weekend.
