THE STARFISH SISTERS
Lake Union Publishing
September 1, 2023
This is the story of Phoebe and Suze. Two friends. The story takes them from adolescence through to adulthood, a time span of 40ish years.
Though they are friends, but, more so, they are like sisters. Their relationship is complete with love, jealousy, secrets and much more. They are close and they are distant, a relationship of love and antagonism for each other. Their lives take them in different directions but they always gravitate back to each other.
I like the writing style. The story is told alternately as Then and Current, another way of saying Past and Present. As is bound to happen, past events explain the present. It is very cohesive.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was well written, very realistic and a compelling read.
Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for the Advance Readers Copy.
