Book Review

LUST FOR LIFE
by Adele Parks

Genre: Mainstream, Chick lit

RT Rating

When Eliza decides
to break up with her boyfriend it's only natural that she turn to her older, happily mar-ried sister, Martha, for support and
comfort food. It's more than a little
surprising when she finds that Martha
is also suddenly single--having been
left by her husband.

As both sisters struggle to start over, they discover surprising things about themselves. Martha falls in love again, despite the challenges of being a single parent, while Eliza has a harder time than expected forgetting Greg. As the sisters navigate these murky waters, they learn that they can depend on themselves and each other.

While there are a lot of books about sisters, this is no common story. Eliza and Martha are so beautifully drawn
that the reader can't help but identify with them and root for them. Their interactions with each other and their loves are so funny and full of heart
and pathos that the reader wishes
their story didn't have to end. This
book is a joy to read. (Nov., 396
