I found A Sister’s Promise to be a really gripping novel. It’s not the first I’ve reviewed by Caroline Finnerty, as I enjoyed The Last Days of Us.
I absolutely couldn’t wait to review A Sister’s Promise, and chose it as my book number 2 for the Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon October 2022
I was gripped by Penny and Willow’s life from the start. I’m half Irish, and was fascinated by their life change of moving from Ireland to Australia. I was eager to learn more about Australian life. I liked Laura too. Caroline Finnerty writes about family relationships, lifes ups and downs as well as children so well.
I really liked Willow’s character too, she’s cute, and Penny is a great mum to her. Penny is so strong and a fighter and I noticed that in Willow too, and how united and resilient they are. I just wanted to hug them and Laura, I wanted to be there for them.
Fortunately, Caroline Finnerty’s writing style made me feel as if I was “in” the story with them.
I felt truly emotionally invested throughout the whole novel, and was eager to find out what happened next.
A Sister’s Promise was just as heartbreaking and true-to-life as The Last Days of Us. I am hoping to review more books by Caroline Finnerty in the future.
Thanks to Caroline Finnerty, Boldwood Books and Rachel’s Random Resources for my eARC in exchange for an honest and voluntary review.
