Hardcover ´ Sister's Choice Kindle ↠

Sister's Choice I discovered this author earlier this month, and liked her writing I gave the first two of her books 4 stars even though they were sappy in a good way and a little on the predictable side So now this is my third book by her that I ve read and it gets 3 stars I liked this one, I just didn t feel as invested.She creates characters in great detail and strings them along through her stories I like the depth this creates, even when I can t identify with them What I don t like, is the constant I discovered this author earlier this month, and liked her writing I gave the first two

constant repetition of certain character traits And I m never a fan of characters who constantly berate themselves It feels like a cheap trick because it looks an awful lot like info dumping especially when this is overused I want to be shown not told over and over again.The story itself was interesting She can certainly paint a pretty picture It was about a woman who becomes a surrogate for her older sister I also liked that there were subplots I think I liked that the most because I d have to relegate this to the Hallmark Movie bin, if it weren t for that So overall, 3 stars.manipulation Here is my truth, I don t know if I had READ this, rather than listened to it, I would have liked it better The subplot was much better than the main story The most annoying part was that the main character Jamie has 2 little girls who based on the reader totally bugged andthan once had me considering just stopping, rather than finish the story The story is based on 2 sisters One who made a mess of her life early on and to redeem herself, acts as a surrogate for her sister who help Here is my truth, I don t know if I had READ this, rather than listened to it, I would have

raise her and is unable to carry children in her own womb It s a restitution story with very annoying children included Much of it was predictable and other parts were unbelievable but if you re knitting, or scrubbing floors it was tolerable but to be read only when desperate for sappy except of course, for the subplot which was great food for thought Sister s Choice was a great addition to Emilie Richard s Shenandoah Album Series I enjoyed reading the story of Jamie Dunkirk, sister to Kendra Taylor from Lover s Knot It was also great to see the continuation of the story of Kendra and Isaac Taylor This fifth book in the series was a novel of love, acceptance, forgiveness, and difficult choices.After a very difficult adolescence, Jamie Dunkirk, single mother of two daughters, has

difficult issues I enjoyed the characters and the relationships that developed between them I have thoroughly enjoyed the Shenandoah Album series, and this book was one of the best This is the last in a series of 5 books Unfortunately the last I should say I can recommend each and every one of the Shenandoah Album series They are all terrific stories that do not shy away from the normal problems in life, but gives many ways of seeing things and puting it all in proper perspective The author doesn t give easy answers, butchallenges the reader to see all different answersI loved all the characters and loved the location where they lived Although Emilie Richards This is the last in a series of 5 books Unfortunately the last I should say I can recommend each and every one of the Shenandoah Album

ends, I still felt when finishing this last book as if I was moving away and losing all my friends I can t quite pin what it is about that book that prevented me from really enjoying it I liked it, I loved this series, and I m sad that this is how it finished Partly it felt like they just weren t that tied into Toms Brooks Jamie just never really interested me as a character, despite the interesting storyline And it did bother me that labor and snowstorms seem to be an inevitable combination in books Something that has also bothered me throughout this series is a lot of gender stereoty I can t quite pin what it is about that book that prevented me from really enjoying it I liked it, I loved this series, and I m sad that this is how it finished Partly it felt like they just

others hair and boys watching football and men not being good at sharing feelings and Cash always being so surprising in his understanding and romance It was great to see Kendra again, along with Elisa and Sam Would have liked to seeof Helen and Gayle I loved this After reading Lovers Knot I wanted to knowabout Jamie, as her relationship with her sister Kendra was not fully developed in that novel I was so glad there was a sequel, picking up their relationship later on, when Jamie gets to give her sister the gift of motherhood Sisters Choice is a quilting pattern, but also a very

references to the fact that Kendra cannot have children and the book being based around the fact that her sister was a surrogate for her, it was NEVER explained WHY she couldn t have a child of her own I think it was mentioned that she was too light whatever that means I understand this must be part of a series and I haven t read the other books but with the surrogacy being the basis of the entire book I think it s reasonable to expect an explanation as to why the surrogacy is Despite many references to the fact that Kendra cannot have children and the book being based around the fact
