My first book by Laura McNeill was totally amazing! (Center of Gravity, August 7, 2015 post) The story was carefully crafted and written so well, I flew through it! The same thing can be said for Sister Dear. The multiple storylines are interlaced in such a way, you could do nothing but continually read till the end. There are all forms of betrayal, but when it comes from family...
Sister Dear is an emotional tale of Allie Marshall; a woman convicted of a murder she claims she didn't commit. Ten years lost, a daughter estranged and so many loose ends. All Allie wanted was a clean slate, a relationship with Caroline and to find out who really killed Coach Thomas. But there are several folks who don't want Allie sniffing about, possibly finding the truth.
As I stated before, I loved this book. My only issue with the story was: do people really react to some situations like this? I know I'm no professional, but none of my children have yelled at me! None of them disrespected me like Caroline did her mother and Aunt. And when I'm suspicious about someone, there's no way in heck I'd keep things bottled within me the way they all did... Ugh! I was going crazy throughout this book!
What I loved most about Sister Dear was Allie's endurance, her inner-strength that kept her searching for the truth. Most of all, I appreciated her patience with her daughter. Teenagers are so difficult to understand, even though we've all been there, no situation is ever the same growing up. I honestly cared for the characters and I became hungry for the flashbacks that were perfectly woven throughout the book, without confusion or annoyance. I was like Baby Bear of Goldilocks and the Three Bears- this book was 'just right!'
Grab Sister Dear from any book-seller; you'll find yourself caught up too! I'm on to a YA adventure next. Cheers!📚
