Twin sisters, Kerry and Eve Barnard are as close as two people can be. They are best friends and do everything together. Despite abandonment by their mother, their father gives them a loving and stable childhood.
Justin Caine is the twins’ childhood neighbor and playmate. Unfortunately, both girls grow to love him, and this love will be their undoing.
At the ages of 17, tragedy strikes Kerry and Eve and nothing is ever the same again. Through loss and betrayal they are torn apart. Years later, when Eve needs Kerry the most, can Kerry find the forgiveness that she needs to release the pain of the past and help her sister in her hour of need?
As told through the eyes of Kerry, Pieces of My Sister’s Life is an intense journey into the lives of two sisters. The story is told simultaneously as the present and the past, so the reader gains pieces of information bits at a time. This makes for a book that is extremely difficult to put down and keeps you wanting more. The characters are rich and the reader is drawn into Kerry’s life through a vast array of emotions. Beautifully written and heart wrenching at times, Pieces of My Sister’s Life is one unforgettable novel.
