What I'm reading
The True and Outstanding Adventures of the Hunt Sisters Elisabeth Robinson
It's now 1:50AM and instead of sleeping I just finished this book.
The writing style took me a while to adapt to as the book is written as a series of letters from one person. This is another book about sisters - a topic that I mentioned is of interest to me as I have 3 of them. I also have 2 brothers but I have to admit my more *interesting* relationships are with my sisters.
In the novel (which is based on events in the author's life), one of the sisters is diagnosed with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia. I've had a sister survive cancer and I lost my father-in-law 9 months ago to complications of Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia so this book hit me on a couple levels.
