The Driscoll sisters couldn’t have been any different from each other. Nessa is the oldest. She’s married to a wonderful man and has a beautiful daughter. Her life seems almost like a story book tale. As she cooks dinner for her family every night, she can’t help but feel a little superior to her sisters.

Cate has always been career driven. Getting to the top of her field is the most important thing. She’s living with her boyfriend; Finn, whom she loves. Cate doesn’t see the point in marrying him though. Their relationship is perfect the way it is.

Bree is the youngest sister. Care-free and fun loving, she has been moving about the world, trying to find a point to stop and live a while. She’s come home to Dublin and works at a garage. She’s having a bit of a problem finding a good man though. It seems they all want to be her friends instead of dating her.

Like all sisters, they have had their fights. They’ve always known they’ve loved each other, but sometimes they didn’t like each other very much. Now as their lives slowly start to unravel, the sisters are finding out that separately; they might be strong, but together, they are invincible. As each faces a life changing choice, they will look to each other and the love they have, to help them through it.

The cadence of the story flows like good Irish whiskey down your throat. It’s smooth with a little bit of a bite to it. All three of the sisters’ characters make the transformation from shallowness to having a depth of emotion that only maturity can bring. You’ll feel the anger and the joy in each decision that the sisters make.

He’s Got To Go is a story for every woman who has to decide for herself whether or not she’s strong enough to be honest with herself and her sisters.
