Romance Historical | Women's Fiction Historical

Opening in Downe, England in 1943 readers meet eighteen-year-old Suzanne Linfoot.  Her domineering mother has plans for her musically talented daughter, but Suzanne has other plans and she must stay strong in order to establish her independence. She auditions with a troupe that travels to provide entertainment for the troop and is accepted.  Finally, she can do her part to contribute to the war effort.  However, her mother stands in her way and only agrees to give her permission for Suzanne to travel when a shocking secret is revealed.

This story is populated with strong women.  Suzanne's older sister is a pilot and her younger sister is independent and forthright.  Their mother is a complex and difficult woman.  Her daughters wonder why.  The author skillfully describes their bond to each other.  Also well presented is how Suzanne grows from her experiences as her world view increases.  The secondary characters add depth to the story.  Realizing how the war has changed so much, Suzanne takes a chance on love wondering where it will lead.  The novel is well-plotted.  There is a tragedy and the secret that is revealed is difficult to understand.  Will it change their lives?

Told with sensitivity and heart, A SISTER'S SONG is a beautifully written story.  It brings alive both the time and place of its setting.  This book is well worth reading.  Highly recommended.

SUMMARY

Her duty is to keep smiling through…

When World War II breaks out, Suzanne’s dream of attending the Royal Academy of Music crumbles.

Determined to do her bit, she joins a swing band that entertains troops in some of the worst-hit cities of Europe.

Through singing, Suzanne finds a confidence she never knew she had, and she soon wins the admiration of Britain’s brave servicemen.

But her heart already belongs to a Navy officer who is serving out at sea. The question is… will they meet again?

A gripping tale of love, courage and camaraderie, perfect for fans of Glynis Peters and Mandy Robotham.
