Editorial Reviews

Review

“[A] brilliantly enjoyable novel about rival sisters and surrogate parenting—quite unlike anything we’ve read in ages. Put it on your bedside table right now!”—Heat (U.K.)

“With twists that will put your jaw in the dropped position, [this is] edgy, funny, unpredictable . . . for women who like it real .”—Daily Record (U.K.)

"Stimson weaves a suspenseful tale of unusual emotional complexity and honesty...The novel's bittersweet ending and its suggestion that all that ends well will not necessarily remain well further complements this intense and heartfelt tale of love and hatred between siblings."--Booklist

More About the Author

Tess Stimson was born and brought up in Sussex, England. As a child, she lived for several years in Greece and Africa, before winning a scholarship to Notre Dame School, Lingfield. She subsequently read English at St. Hilda's College, Oxford, where she received the Eleanor Rooke Award (for English Literature), the Dorothy Whitelock Award (for Anglo-Saxon), and was made an Exhibitioner.

After graduating, Tess joined ITN (Independent Television News), where she reported and produced regional and world stories, travelling to hotspots and war-zones all over the globe.

In 1991, she left ITN to write her first book, YOURS TILL THE END, the biography of Beirut hostage Jackie Mann, and moved to Cyprus with her then-husband, CNN correspondent Brent Sadler, with whom she has two sons, Henry and Matthew.

Her first novel, HARD NEWS, set in the world of television news, was published in 1993 to immediate acclaim and became an instant bestseller. Later that year, she moved to Rome, Italy, where she wrote SOFT FOCUS(1995), and POLE POSITION(1996). Both were commercial and critical successes. All three novels were translated into several languages.

In 1997, Tess moved to Beirut, Lebanon, from whence she juggled reporting on the Middle-East for CNN, BBC and NTV (Lebanese television) with raising a family. She also freelanced for UK-based TV stations Sky, Channel Five and other cable channels, and wrote for the Daily Mail, Mail on Sunday, Daily Express, You and Glamour Magazine and The Times.

In 2000, following her divorce, Tess moved back to London with her children. Two years later, she was appointed Professor of Creative Writing at the University of South Florida, and moved permanently to the US in 2002.

She left USF in 2004 to return to full-time writing and journalism, becoming a regular feature columnist for the Daily Mail newspaper. Her novel, THE ADULTERY CLUB, went straight into the Top Ten Bestseller List on publication in the UK, and was translated into 15 languages. ONE GOOD AFFAIR (previously published as THE INFIDELITY CHAIN in the UK) was released in the US in 2009, WHO LOVES YOU MOST (previously published as THE CRADLE SNATCHER in the UK), in 2010, and WHAT'S YOURS IS MINE in 2012. THE WIFE WHO RAN AWAY and THE LYING GAME are available from amazon.co.uk, as is her non-fiction book, BEAT THE BITCH! HOW TO STOP THE OTHER WOMAN STEALING YOUR MAN.

Tess is married to Erik Oliver, with whom she has a daughter, Lily. She lives in Vermont with her husband and three children and is working on her next book, AN OPEN MARRIAGE.

Format: Paperback
Thanks to her sister Susannah's destructive behavior, Grace feared pregnancy. However, in her thirties, she suddenly hears her biological clock ticking away. She and her husband Tom decide to have a child. Fourteen months later and a cost of a ton of pounds, Dr. Janus informs Grace she can never conceive. Because of Tom's heart defect, adoption is also out. Strategic thinker Grace plots her next child campaign even as she almost abducts a baby.

In America, Homeland Security informs Susannah that she will be sent back to Great Britain. Between ex husbands, alcohol, drugs, and sex with anyone even when she was married, Susannah knows arguing is futile. When their mother Catherine suffers a debilitating stroke that leaves her comatose, Grace demands Susannah come home, which she does. In Oxfordshire, Susannah becomes a surrogate mother for her sister, but though pregnant she still drinks and sleeps with everyone. As she tries clean up, Grace and Tom head to divorce court with custody becoming an issue.

This is an interesting look at two sisters whose lifestyles are dramatically different yet in many ways the same as each tends towards obsessiveness bordering on destructive compulsion. Numerous medical crises become a gimmicky conflict resolution technique that severely detracts from the family drama as does a bit of whimsy involving their mom. Still fans will wonder how much is too much sharing between sisters.

Format: Paperback
Written in the first person by four different narrators, this interesting and complex story about sisters doesn't get started until the third chapter. Don't give up on it. Although one narration requires quite a suspension of disbelief, it makes for pleasurable reading in the style of a Bridget Jones-type account. Grace is the accomplished and happily married big sister who is burdened by a careless much married, free-spirited sister named Susannah. The author manages to get the sister annoyance factor and love, which the main characters share, just right. Anyone familiar with //King Lear// knows that sisters can sometimes be worst enemies.

While some of the many sex scenes have a slight cringe factor, the stories move along well with just enough twists and turns to properly depict the sibling rivalries and entitlements that sisters share. The heart of the book is family relationships and how far we push each other. How did these sisters become polar opposites? And, is a reconcilement possible? It takes an almost divine intervention to make this unlikely event happen. Grace needs a baby and Susannah has three. Susannah needs a kidney and Grace has two. In //What's Yours is Mine//, ownership is hotly contested.

I finished this book in two days. I won't re-hash the plot as it's in the summary and in other reviews. The characters had a lot of depth and I found both sisters to have endearing qualities. I didn't find the plot line necessarily very believable, but it definitely held my interest.

I loved loved this book. Tess is such an awesome writer. I loved the bond between the two sisters. I couldn't put it down. I was so sad that it had to end.
