Book Review: Between Sister's

Between Sister’s by Kristin Hannah

Thoughts: My first Kristin Hannah book was a book that I very much enjoyed – so I decided to go back and try out one that is a few years older. I found this one to be very much in the same style or vein. It delves into relationships between two sisters. They had a hard past that wasn’t either of their faults. But when you are forced to be both a mother and a sister things happen. You make hard choices that can affect both of you for the rest of your lives.

And you can either live with that pain – or let it go and let yourselves be part of each other’s lives. And in this case a wedding brings the two sisters together – and just in time. I think this is a great example of don’t let communication come between a relationship that you really cherish. Whether it is a sister/sister, friend/friend, husband/wife, daughter/father etc. They are all relationships that if they really are worth it should be fought for. And if you don’t fight for it now there may not be time to do it later.

I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who likes reading about relationships. It shows that everyone can get past the feelings that made them hurt – if they let themselves and that is something that can help them have a more fulfilling life.

What genre would you consider this?
Family Dynamics

I enjoy Kristin Hannah. If I want a good deep family drama, I know I can count on her. My first by her was Firefly Lane. Quite a tear jerker. I have read two others and am currently reading Winter Garden. This again, is a wonderful drama with a historical twist.
