I just know that I expected a lot more from this particular author. I mean, "Winter Garden" and "True Colors" are two of my favorite books! This definitely won't deter me from reading more of her work, I am just going to chalk this up to... maybe the one time Kristin Hannah didn't give it her all? Maybe she had a deadline to meet? I dunno. My advice would be to skip right over this one and read something else of her's. The two aforementioned titles are total winners! Let's just pretend "Between Sisters" never happened eh? ;)
Misunderstandings led to their estrangement when Meg was 16 and Claire was 9. They kept in contact by phone, but their closeness and friendship disappeared. Meg goes through a challenging time with her successful career in law, and she takes time off and goes to the small town where Claire lives to help with her wedding.
There is more romance than some of Hannah’s other books. I had tears in my eyes for the last thirty pages. This would make a great movie. If not for the Hollywood big screen, it would make a great tear jerker made-for-TV movie.
I think reading Nightingale ( AMAZING READ) had me expecting
More than Between Sisters had to offer. I hope Kristin Hannah’s other books are less trashy vocabulary and more focus on characters & story. It did have a well written happy ending.
Top international reviews
Meghann, elder sister and sometime mother figure to much younger Claire, has become a highly successful and driven divorce attorney, who immerses herself in her career (and one-night stands) to avoid emotional entanglement. Single mum, Claire, runs a holiday park with her dad. Let down by her daughter’s father, she is a love cynic like her sister. The women’s relationship is fraught with tensions and deep-seated grievances that neither can voice. It is only when life-changing events and two unlikely men join forces to break down the self-imposed barriers both inside and between the sisters that healing finally becomes possible.
A great read, with well-drawn, likeable characters and a cliffhanger of an ending!
Thanks for reading my review. I hope you found it helpful. You can find more candid book reviews on my Amazon profile page.
. I look forward to reading more of her work.
