Fairly predictable "chick lit." ( )
  Stacie-C | May 8, 2021 |
'Between Sisters' is my second Kristin Hannah book, and I love her writing. Kristin Hannah knows to write different genres; she also knows how to write sisterhood relationship biological and friendship.
'Between Sisters,' as the author wrote in her note for the readers, "is a novel about women in conflict and crisis learning to face modern hardships by relying on themselves, their friends, and their families."
It’s an emotional story of two sisters finding their way back to one another after being estranged. I laughed, I cried, I felt.
I listened to while reading my physical copy; the narrator, Laural Merlington, is doing beautiful work with the voices for the male and the female character and the accents accordingly.
The settings are so simple and inviting; the characters are flawed in such ways that make them feel real to the reader. The characters have flaws, but the flaws are created to make you feel sympathy for or appreciation of the character, not in a way that would make you hate the character for being so incredibly obnoxious.
I know that I will continue reading Kristin Hannah's book backlist and new. ( )

Between Sisters by Kristin Hannah
Love this author's works and although longer than others they contain so much.
This story starts out with acknowledges then the story begins.
Family camp that the dad still runs with help from his daughter, Claire.
Story follows Joe is a worker that picks fruit at the vineyards along with immigrants where he becomes gets hot and wants to move on, nightmares still scare him. He was once married to Diane and he just wants to move on, low profile.
Love the location of WA, so many of the destinations mentioned we have visited.
Like hearing of the other locations, new places to me, so well described.
Claire and her daughter Allison are working at the camp and she plans to go with high school friends for their annual vacation. She only sees herself as a failure when she talks to her sister.
Her sister from a different father, Meg is very accomplished lawyer and can't be bothered with the camp. She has many sexual partners to fill the void along with a lot of pills from her doctor to help get through the night.
Chapters go back in time to events that occurred so you can understand why things are done they way they are 10 years later.
After Claire gets married it's determined she has a brain tumor and she wants to keep it away from her spouse who's off recording songs in TN.
Meg is there for her whenever she needs her, researching the cures. Joe has some knowledge but it's in his past and it could be he can't go there....
I received this book from National Library Service for my BARD (Braille Audio Reading Device). ( )

I should know better than to read a Kristin Hannah book at work. I was a crying mess as I was sitting in the office at lunch! Another amazing read from this author. This did have a slower start for me than her other books, but once it picked up it never let go. Expect an emotional rode with this one and get the tissues ready. ( )

Meghann Dontess und Claire Cavenaugh sind Schwester. Aber sie sind so unterschiedlich und haben so unterschiedliche Vorstellungen von ihrem Leben, dass sie eigentlich nichts miteinander verbindet. Bei den seltenen telefonischen Kontakten reden sie am liebsten über das Wetter, das ist unverfänglich. Meghann ist eine erfolgreiche Scheidungsanwältin. Das hat ihre alle Illusionen über die Liebe und glückliche Ehen geraubt. Sie selbst lebt als Single und behauptet, dass es ihr so gefällt. Die jüngere Schwester Claire lebt bei ihrem leiblichen Vater und betreibt mit ihm das River’s Edge Resort. Sie ist alleinerziehende Mutter einer kleinen Tochter. Eigentlich leiden beide unter der Entfremdung und bei den unpersönlichen Gesprächen kommt es immer wieder zu Missverständnissen und neuen Verletzungen. Als Claire dann heiraten will und Meg zur Hochzeit einlädt, will Meg ihre kleine Schwester vor einer Enttäuschung, wie sie es selbst zu oft erlebt hat, bewahren.
Ich liebe den Schreibstil von Kristin Hannah. Das Buch „Die Nachtigall“ hat mich total begeistert, daher war ich sehr gespannt auf „Die andere Schwester“.
Die Schwestern haben sich als Kinder gut verstanden, doch das änderte sich dann und so kam es, dass sie kaum noch Kontakt hatten. Ich war begierig zu erfahren, was dazu geführt hat, dass sie kaum noch miteinander reden.
Als Meg bei Claire ankommt und ihr die Hochzeit ausreden will, muss sie feststellen, dass Claire mit ihrem bescheidenen Leben zufrieden ist. Sie hat eine Reihe von Freundinnen und liebt ihre kleine Tochter Ali, ihren Vater Sam und natürlich Bobby. Sie weiß einfach, dass er der Richtige für sie ist. Meg erkennt, wie leer ihr Leben doch ist, obwohl sie alles hat. Bei ihrer Schwester beginnt eine Veränderung und plötzlich ist da sogar jemand, der vielleicht auch einen Platz in ihrem Leben haben könnte. Als Claire krank wird, wirkt die organisierte und autoritäre Meg ziemlich überfordert. Aber sie tut alles, um ihrer Schwester zu helfen.
Die Charaktere in dieser Geschichte sind sehr menschlich dargestellt. Während mir Claire von Anfang an sehr sympathisch war, hat es bei Meghann gedauert, bis ich mich mit ihr anfreunden konnte. Doch dann kam die Mutter der beiden Frauen ins Spiel. Eliana Sullivan ist eine kalte und egoistische Frau, die sich in der Öffentlichkeit ständig in Szene setzt. Ihre Kinder waren ihr nur lästig und nun hat sie nicht einmal Mitgefühl für ihre kranke Tochter. Jetzt sind die Verletzungen, die in der Vergangenheit entstanden sind, nachvollziehbar.
Erst so peu à peu erfahren wir, was das Schicksal Maghann und Claire im Leben beschert hat. Auch wenn das Ende der Geschichte vorhersehbar ist, so hat mir das Buch dennoch sehr gefallen. ( )
