Review: My Sister's Prayer by:Clark/Gould
About the Book:
Women of Fearless Devotion Virginia, 1705 Celeste Talbot is usually such a sensible young woman--until she falls for an English soldier reassigned to the Colonies. Leaving her Huguenot family behind, she sets sail for America, only to learn that her younger sister Berta has been kidnapped and forced on board the very same ship. Whom can Celeste trust? The dashing soldier? Or the vigilant carpenter who remains by their side in the perilous New World? Virginia, present day Madeline "Maddee" Talbot has her hands full when she agrees to take in her younger sister Nicole following a serious car accident.
The young women grew apart when Nicole fell into drug addiction, and Maddee prays this will be the start of a better life for her sister. But as they investigate a trauma from their childhood, Maddee must keep a diligent eye on Nicole--and the shadowy figure watching them from afar. From the Christy Award-winning team of Mindy Starns Clark and Leslie Gould, My Sister's Prayer tells the epic tale of two women compelled to protect their sisters, confront their fears, and navigate the muddy waters of betrayal to find true love.
This story is a unique one, it is written from two different points of view as well as two different points in time. It is a little too hard to follow at first but once I caught on it was easier to understand and the stories of the two sets of sisters and the troubles and battles that they have faced. It was a compelling story and it was hard to put the book down.
The authors have made a masterpiece and I can see where it took the two of them to write such an interesting story because it involves so many characters and how they are intertwined. A great story told in a fascinating way makes the story more interesting and fun. A really good book that was indeed hard to put down.
