I was shocked and amazed that any book was able to enchant me the way Between Sisters did from the first moment I opened the book.
While I don't have a sister with which to compare this story to, I had lived through a similar experience with my oldest brother. It pains me that we can't get over our past, but my present and future are much brighter without his shadow to overcast upon it.
Even though the book was somewhat predictable, the way it was told made it even more poignant. Not every piece of the puzzle was formed until the end, and I loved how Hannah wove it together. This was my first read by this author, and it won't be my last.
Very moving. I have to admit, there was a lump in my throat. And that does not happen very often.
An easy summer read. But with enough story-line and engaging characters to keep the pages turning....it's easy to understand the relationship between the sisters--even though they are so different. I have a sister, and it's not often that an author gets the nuances so right in the way two people relate to one another....Hannah does here. These two women are struggling as adults to find the innocence in their relationship that they once had--before it's too late. It made me want to call my sis' right up...
Have tissues ready. Had me laughing and crying a couple of times. I enjoy Kristien Hannah because she weaves a very human story and being human, I can relate.
One of the best reads of all times. This is a story about 2 sisters who lose each other and find their way back to being family. A very touching story about these sisters and others that surround them.
