Format: Paperback
This is a very moving story about how far you would go in order to attain your heart's desire. The reader can empathise with both the heroines - Hollie who yearns for a child to the point of obsession and her selfish but impulsive sister Scarlett who has her own agenda - but you know from the start that they're on a collision course. They both risk everything in their desperate attempts to reach their goals, but along the way they learn things about themselves that eventually make them stronger. The novel packs an emotional punch that hits you right in the gut. A roller-coaster ride of love, dreams, desperation, betrayal and ultimately possible redemption, it kept me enthralled from the very first page. I stayed up until the early hours of the morning to find out how it would end and when it did, the characters remained in my mind for a long time afterwards and I didn't want to let them go.

A sisters gift is the first book I have read by this author but I will now be reading her others I loved it.
It was an easy book to get in to although the subject matter was very sad. It is a book full of regrets and forgiveness and it works together beautifully. The characters felt very real they all had there faults but I could see all points of view. I loved the relationship between the two sisters eventhough they did'nt always get on. If you are wanting an easy read with lots of emotion then you should read this book. It is full of big decidions from the 3 main characters if I was in there shoes I don't know what I would have done. Excellent book.

Format: Paperback
Hollie Hudson is happily married to husband Richard but craves one thing desperately: a baby. It's all she's ever dreamed about since she was a little girl and the fact she's incapable of having a baby is driving her to distraction. After happening upon a leaflet for a surrogate Hollie comes up with the answer to all of her problems: she'll ask her sister Scarlett to be her surrogate. Scarlett, however, is nothing like homebody Hollie and has spent a couple of years in the Amazon rainforest desperate to come up with a solution to stop the rainforest being destroyed. Once PlanetLove, the organisation Scarlett works for, is taken over by a new group, Scarlett finds herself back in England to renew her visa and to try and raise money before heading back to Brazil. After Hollie asks Scarlett to be her surrogate, Scarlett realises she could raise the money she needs sooner than she thinks... Just how far will the two sisters go to realise their dreams?

The real let down of what was, up until then, a fantastic book came about half way through and it really put me off. Hollie comes up with a crazy idea about how to conceive her dream baby and forces Richard to go along with it. The entire scene was completely off-putting and although it wasn't essentially wrong, it all felt completely wrong and forced. I did wonder if I would manage to carry on with the book but after getting past the entire ugliness of it all I did find myself getting sucked back into the book. The main theme of the book seems to be the idea of what the word charity means. For me though, instead of feeling as everything that happens is charitable I thought it was more pure selfishness.

Oh wow. Where do I start with this review? It's hard to write one without giving away too much but I'll do my best.
This book is awful. I'm still trying to work out why I finished it but perhaps it's because it actually started with some promise....
....before quickly spiralling into the biggest pile of crap I've read this year.

Want the biggest Martyr since the days of the Bible? Look no further than Hollie - who proclaims to love "her" Lettie before tearing strips off her at every opportunity - but only in her own private thoughts so she can still look saintly on the outside.

Want a bitch that might even surpass those you see in shows like Dallas and Dynasty? Scarlett - who only does anything as a means to her own end and seems to wonder why people can't just forgive every selfish action of hers.

Want Mr Two Dimensional Cookie Cutter Husband? That's Richard, who agrees to the most appalling request made of him by Martyr Hollie and still manages to make me want to reach for my sick bucket every time he's on the same page as Hollie.

As for the whole PlanetLove operation...well, spare me. This is just the Esperanza project from Little Miracles regurgitated.

The narrative from the point of view of Red Balloon takes the cake. Some pointless characters are introduced and then done away with, there's never any resolution with Duncan, things get revealed at the end of the book that could have done with some exploring instead of dying in the wind and at one stage, the changing narrative becomes confusing even for the author who starts a Hollie chapter with Scarlett. As for the ending (if you can call it that) this book does exactly what her other book Little Miracles (which was yet more crap) did and trails off into nothingness.
