KINDLE ´ The Orphan Sisters Ü Shirley Dickson

M – confused and heartbroken to be deserted by her when they need her the most 1940 Etty and Dorothy are finally released from the confines of Blakely Hall – but their freedom comes when the country is in the grip of World War Two and its terrors Amidst a devastating backdrop of screaming air raid sirens and cold nights huddled in shelters the sisters are desperate to put their broken childhoods behind them But trouble lies ahead Dorothy I have read some great books this year that are set in and around the world war and this is another one to add to the list What appeals most in this story is the relationship between Etty and Dorothy I am sure most of us with siblings when we were younger argued and fought like cat and dogs Etty and Dorothy though are very close Having been sent to an orphanage they only have each other The bond that grows between the two was so endearing and lovely to readAs the girls leave the orphanage we get to see what life was like for both of the young women especially within the war itself We see all the highs and lows and the turmoils that both sisters have to face I have to say it makes for a page turner of a read as I was so engrossed in what was going on The Orphan Sisters is a compelling and emotional story that will tug on the readers heart strings You really get a sense of the era that the story is set in with all the concerns and worries that the people had back then I loved though with all that going on the strength especially that characters like Etty have to just keep on going and make the most of what life deals you A superb readMy thanks to Bookouture and NetGalley for an advanced readers copy of this book All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway
