My Sister's Bones by Nuala Ellwood
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This was all it said it would be and more.
I received my copy through the post from the authors PA. I was that desperate to continue reading I was frantic on the evening as I was laying in bed. I am used to reading on my Kindle paperwhite, it has a backlight! oh no, what do I do with a paperback and not disturb my husband from sleeping? I delved into my bedside cabinet to find a light I used to have before Kindle days, found it! but will it light up? YES! ureka! I could continue to read this.
If not, I would have taken myself downstairs because this was a book I got my teeth into.
Kate has a sister, but both choose a different path. Or they're life just went that way. Kate has a career, and her sister has the bottle of booze to escape into.
The things that Kate saw and experienced on her travels haunted her, one thing especially. We are are unraveling layers of Kate's journey bit by bit taking each layer off. Its very cleverly done.
Its harrowing, its compelling, its sorrowful, its also a relief sometimes for Kate.
Its not good returning to a hometown and family that you want to keep at a distance but, she had to return when her beloved Mother dies.
There are all sorts of shapes that fit this puzzle, you just need to find the right one.
When Kate starts to experience and 'see' things that others don't believe she is frantic.
Just what did her Mother see that she saw?
This is a really good read, and I am not kidding when I needed to find that light to stay up and read it. Sometimes no matter what, a book comes before sleep, and this was one of them.
Thank you to the PA of the author for contacting me and involving me in this book. I will be looking for this authors books now, another to add to my collection of 'must read his/hers next book'
