Shygirl: Reading After Midnight

I will read anything I can get my hands on. Seriously.

 Most books I read are reviewed for Harlequin Junkie, but I'll have an occasional independent or author requested review that I'll post.

Stunningly Poignant and Emotional

When We Were Sisters - Emilie Richards

‘Why had it taken me so long to see clearly that somehow these two sadly broken children had healed each other and, in the healing, given the world something infinitely precious?’

 

What an incredibly intense and touching tale. When We Were Sisters was the type of novel that opens your eyes, makes you think, makes you feel, and fills you with the hope that there is a silver lining for those who so desperately need it.

 

While this wasn’t necessarily an easy read, it was an important and extremely emotional story about two young girls who bonded and became sisters of the heart as they endured the hardships of being in the foster care system. So as you can expect, there are some issues that are dealt with that some readers may be sensitive to such as child neglect, emotional and sexual abuse, and drug and alcohol references. I didn’t think these were done in too graphic a manner, but I would be remiss not to mention it.
