A Gift from My Sister
By: Ann Perelman
Reviewed by: Dawn Skyy
I reviewed this book in manuscript form as a member of the Crimson Flower Review Team.
First let me say that I loved this book. At first I thought this book was going to be a story about one family. Troy, Sky and their daughter Rachael. After all they are introduced from the very beginning.
However, Ann Perelman has a surprise for us, there are other characters waiting in the wings to be introduced. Unfortunately, it takes tragic circumstances in order to bring every one out into the light.
Like a flower that buds, and then slowly opens to reveal its full beauty, so does this story. Each chapter opens and introduces either different member of the family or someone(s) closely affiliated with it. At first you may be a tad confused and wonder: “Where do they fit in?” But, I encourage you to read on, valiant reader.
Yes there are tears, suffering, pain, unforgiving people, jealousy, etc. Not excluding some very difficult decisions which must be made. In the end some very unlikely alliances and made, forgiveness is given, sacrifices made in order that this group becomes a family in the end. It’s not all happiness and light but, it can be done.
I really loved the unique way in which this book was written. I also enjoyed the character interaction and descriptions of different locations, which were vivid and made me feel as if I were right there. I give this book five stars.
