Sisters TornBook - 2001
The tragedy that follows from the misconception that children are chattel, not people, is brought out in this book. It touches on emotions that are common to everyone: fear of rejection, abandonment and loneliness. Finally, and most importantly, it is also a tale of hope. Based on true family history, the story begins in England in the 1920s. It follows the lives of two sisters - Catherine and Simone - from England to Canada, as their family is torn apart and they desperately search to find each other. Against impossible odds involving three countries and 65 years of disappointments, two little girls, connected only by blood and birth, find each other again. As fiction, this story would be worthy of writing. As a true story, it has to be shared.
