Syndetics book coverThe Moon Sisters
It was the delightful cover that drew me to this one, however the story is anything but pretty and light.  It’s about the relationship bewteen two sisters whose lives are thrown into turmoil after the suicide of their mother.  Both sisters are very different from one another, with different approaches to life and struggle, and that’s where the trouble begins.  The free-spirited sister Jazz decides to travel to an unknown town to lay her mother’s remains to rest.  Her logical and sensible sister Olivia thinks this is a foolish quest, wanting to just get on with her life.  This is a complex and atmospheric emotional drama – looks good!
