Today is my stop on the My Sister’s Bones blog tour and I am here today with a review, which will hopefully be more than just READ THIS BOOK, but we’ll see. First, here’s some information about the book!
About the Book
Kate Rafter is a high-flying war reporter. She’s the strong one. The one who escaped their father. Her younger sister Sally didn’t. Instead, she drinks.
But when their mother dies, Kate is forced to return home. And on her first night she is woken by a terrifying scream.
At first Kate tells herself it’s just a nightmare. But then she hears it again. And this time she knows she’s not imagining it.
What secret is lurking in the old family home?
And is she strong enough to uncover it…and make it out alive?
When I first heard about this book, I was instantly intrigued. A fish hook had landed and I was curious to see where it was going to take me. Now that I have finished the book, I am struggling to find the words to explain just how immaculate, powerful and intense this book was. From the very first sentence to the very last, I was absorbed by the words on the page. It took me on an exceptional journey that I may never forget.
In The Light
The problem about reviewing is that I don’t want to gush too much and put you off or put too much pressure on you to read this book but it also the worry that you will give too much away. And in the case of this book, I do not want to give anything away. A large part of what made this book so gripping and thrilling was not knowing what would happen or where the book was leading me. Thus all I want to say here is that this book was intense, thrilling and an emotional rollercoaster that leaves you breathless.
How Do You
What really captured my attention was how intricate and detailed all of the characters were. I was pulled into the story by Kate whose story tugged at my heartstrings. And I swayed along with Sally as life plodded along. All the characters were dark, deep and full of life. You could see where things fitted and fell apart, could understand the feelings and thoughts from all sides and it just made the book that much more intense and powerful.
Know The Truth
In case you missed it, I have fallen head over heels in love with this book. I devoured it from beginning to end and really struggled to put it down. It was an emotional book that struck my heart when I least expected it. With an absorbing narrative, this book is sure to pull you out of this world and into an entirely new one where things aren’t quite what they seem…
