-From the back cover-
WOMEN OF FEARLESS DEVOTION
Celeste Talbot is usually such a sensible young woman – until she falls for an English soldier reassigned to the Colonies. Leaving her Huguenot family behind, she sets sail for America, only to realize that her younger sister, Berta, has been kidnapped and forced on board the very same ship. Whom can Celeste trust? The dashing soldier? Or the vigilant carpenter who remains by their side in the perilous New World?
Virginia, present day
Madeline “Maddee” Talbot has her hands full when she agrees to take in her younger sister, Nichole, following a serious car accident. The young women grew apart when Nichole fell into drug addiction, and Maddee prays this will be the start of a better life for her sister. But as they investigate a trauma from their childhood, Maddee must keep a diligent eye on Nichole – and the shadowy figure watching them from afar.
From the Christy Award-winning team of Mindy Starns Clark and Leslie Gould, My Sister's Prayer tells the epic tale of two young women compelled to protect their sister, confront their fears, and navigate the muddy waters of betrayal to find true love.
2 sets of sisters, 300 years apart...
This Book received a 4.5 Bark rating.
As with book 1 in the series, My Sister's Prayer is a split-time story with two different women 300 years apart facing similar situations. Both are strong, both have always been the 'good sister' and tend toward self-righteousness, both have sisters that have made poor decisions, both will go to any lengths to help their sisters, and both must navigate their way through murky to find real love.
At times I became frustrated with Celeste, especially, and wanted to shake some sense into her. Couldn't she see that she was only being used? Didn't she understand who really had her best interests at heart? Can you tell that became emotionally involved with this story?
Mindy Starns Clark & Leslie Gould are wonderful authors and it clearly shows in the seamless rendering of these two stories intertwined in a single novel. Whether you love contemporary or historical novels this book will have you covered. My Sister's Prayer is a wonderful story and a MUST read for Christian fiction fans.
Tell Tale Book Reviews gives My Sister's Prayer by Mindy Starns Clark & Leslie Gould a 4.5 Bark rating.
