Anna | 247 comments Book 29: The Sisters' Song by Louise Allan.

We've passed the halfway point of the year so it's a good time to check in with how I'm going with my challenge goals. I've read 29 books towards my goal of 50, and reviewed 15 towards my goal of 25, so I'm over halfway. As always I'm enjoying the wide range of books by Australian women across many different genres.
