it was amazing
Read in August, 2010

What a fabulous portrayal of family loyalty and guilt (and all its sticky trappings). This tale of two sisters rings true as they navigate their lives after severe trauma in childhood, and come to grips with their damaging pasts later in life.

The essential truth of this story is that family bonds, motivations and obligations run oh-so-deep, even when they can be detrimental. And in the case of Aunt Cilla, that family can so easily be dismissed. Don’t we see this kind of tug o-war every day?

I was engaged from the start and enjoyed the story of these sisters’ lives – spanning childhood to adulthood. The novel tackles the tough topic of abuse and its long-lasting effects, as well as the “fight” instinct of humans to persevere. Emotionally on target and recommended for readers who enjoy drama and wish to understand more about the inner workings of family relationships. This novel hits all the key themes that make for great drama; it’s a tale of acceptance, finding one’s place, forgiveness, strength and character.
