"A Soft Place to Land is a beautiful story of the complicated love between two sisters. It's smart, funny, moving and wise. I simply did not want to put it down. If you have a sister, you're going to miss her, and if you don't have one, you'll wish that you did. Book clubs: This is your next pick. I loved this book. Susan Rebecca White is a wonderful writer." (Kathryn Stockett author of The Help)
"Susan Rebecca White is a true original. She whacks through stereotypes with a machete, ultimately rejecting them all, and finding instead deep compassion for the flaws that make us human. This journey of two sisters' loss and longing is sure to win your heart." (Todd Johnson author of The Sweet By and By)

Read the reviews; some liked this book; some said after 50 pages story became uninteresting; only you can decide how the story and characters work for you.
At times I felt too much detail, to much dragging of the story line, other times it was well what happened here, why was it left hanging. Example the step mother to Julia, after much being said about her, she vanished from the story line. Nonexistent.
Read the story, form your opinion. Read the book discussion, think about the questions for discussion. Would I recommend to my friends yes.
I love the complicated natures she gives to the sisters, and can so clearly hear each of the girls' voices. Their communication via letters and the way Susan portrays what each is thinking and more importantly feeling - especially when it contradicts what the other one is feeling or thinks her sister is experiencing - is brilliantly done.
I read the whole thing in about three hours, as I just couldn't put it down!
