Wonderfully written book. This is my second Phyillis A. Perry book and she did not disappoint. Two sisters divided by something that should have brought them even closer. It's a strong statement for the cruel burdens that women sometimes carry in order to be accepted or maintain a "respectable" image. This is a story of love, forgiveness and the power of family. There was a disconnect, some implausibility in the story for me though, I can't believe that someone only one generation removed from h ...more
