A reunion Of Ghosts | Judith Claire Mitchell

What is the collective noun for ghosts? Apparently, a reunion!
This is a great story, well told. We are told at the start that three sisters are intent on committing suicide all together, as their family has a 'curse' whereby one or more people of each generation dies by their own hand. Interwoven with the story of their last year is the history of the family as the sisters try to grapple with the curse.
The family arrived from Europe after the war, seeking refuge from the killing of the Jews. They are a bright and successful scientific family in Europe, but their dark secrets come to light and it's an intriguing look at how history forms and in-forms families.

I really liked reading this book as it had great characters I cared about. Well worth reading.
