THE ORPHAN SISTER
Genre: Mainstream, General Mainstream Fiction
This book is a bit repetitive, but the author does a good job of merging past and present events. Readers may be expecting a happier ending but a not-so-perfect ending is reflective of real life and that may have been the author’s intention all along.
Being one of a set of triplets can have its advantages and disadvantages, as Clementine discovers. It doesn’t help that her sisters are identical while she is the fraternal sister. She has always felt like an outsider and this is further emphasized when her father disappears. Clementine, with her sisters Olivia and Odette, start dissecting their past and discover secrets that threaten to tear the family apart. (GALLERY, Jul., 304 pp., $15.00)
