"I haven't time to sort out your domestic squabbles." ~ 29%
Beth ran away from home when she was a teenager leaving behind her sister, Sara, and a terrible secret they share. Like most secrets and cliché fiction, Beth and Sara have to face their past and confront it head-on. Meanwhile, Eva has to learn more about her past to continue her future. With a marriage in shambles and her own birth a mystery in itself, Eva traces her roots.
Sleep Sisters was influenced by hidden stories that are locked away in the memories of women, per the author's letter at end of the book. I have to agree. A lot of people carry secrets to their grave. But sometimes secrets go public. Laura Elliot had a good premise with this fictional story but it fell flat. Perhaps it was the emphasis on corruption or maybe it was too many characters thrown in the mix. I found it very difficult to keep up and really get into the story.
Sleep Sister will be published tomorrow, March 31, 2016.
