This book was picked by Jenn from my PT book club and it so well worth reading. This book is about two sisters, twins, and their journey through life. At a very young age their mother leaves them and this is something they struggle with their whole lives. I think in a lot of ways it played a huge part in how their lives unfolded. When they are seventeen, something huge happens to them and their lives are changed forever. Thirteen years later, something big happens once again and ends up being a life changing experience for them. This novel goes back and forth from the past to the present but not in a confusing way. As a reader I became very involved in these girl’s lives, feeling as though I could feel their joys, hurts and disappointments, and struggles. The book keeps you wondering about the truth of the story as it shifts back and forth and really keeps your interest by doing that. I had this book finished in about a day and a half I think-I just wanted to keep picking it up to see what was going to happen next. I was surprised in parts, shocked at some others. Ultimately this book made me cry my eyes out but that’s ok-doesn’t make it a bad story for doing that. This was a really good novel, one I will place on my shelf to be kept, passed on to a friend or maybe re-read someday.
As a note there was one quote I want to keep in my memory-it just sounded beautiful and nice to me: “Everyone you ever love, anyone who ever loves you, lay a light like a canopy on your soul”.
Great pic Jenn!
