The Sisters Mortland was a very interesting book that vividly painted the lives of three sisters in an old castle in the 1960s. There was so much tragedy in this book, and so much mystery- you see half the book through the eyes of Maisie, a young autistic child, and then there is a tragic near-death of her character. You revisit all the characters years later and find out what really happened to lead her to jump- or fall- to her now vegetable-like existence. I enjoyed the twisting, turning plot- but in the end there were no answers or tying up of loose ends, so it left me feeling depressed and anxious to move on to the next book. Still, Beaumann is a skilled writer and it was a thought-provoking story.
