More About the Author

Helen Bryan was born in Virginia, grew up in Tennessee, graduated from Barnard College and since 1971 has lived in London where she qualified as a barrister and is a member of the Inner Temple.She has written a layman's guide to the English planning system "Planning Applications and Appeals" and a biography "Martha Washington First Lady of Liberty" which was awarded a Citation of Merit by the Colonial Dames of America. She has written a novel, a World War II romantic saga " War Brides" inspired by the stories and reminiscences of the wartime generation, especially those of women who joined Churchill's Special Operations Executive, and family holidays in a small East Sussex village where, according to local legend, an old smugglers' tunnel led from beneath a grave in the churchyard to the seacoast, obviously waiting for a story to be built around it.

Her next novel is another romantic saga, set in sixteenth century Spain and Spanish America

This book can best be described as an epic historical mystery spanning from the 16th century to the present day. As the product description says, it tells the story of five girls who are taken in by the nuns in Spain and hidden from the Spanish Inquisition. They are then sent to the New World, entrusted with the Order's most treasured possessions to ensure their safety.

I particularly enjoyed the parts of the story in Spain and South America. I was totally lost in the tale, which is rich in detail about the way of life in the convents. In Spain we see them carrying on with their work with the ever present fear of the Inquisition. In South America we see them landing in a strange country, settling down amongst the native Incas and forging a place for themselves and their faith alongside the Inca priests.

I also enjoyed the individual stories of the girls - their backgrounds and how they came to arrive at the convent and what happened to them. Not all of them took Orders and some indeed went on to marry and have families of their own. There are a number of these background stories about the girls, which are all really good, fascinating reads but it could get a bit confusing at times trying to remember what had happened to each girl.

I was not quite so taken with the part of the story set in the present day and Menina. I just didn't quite warm to her, mainly because she just seemed to be "too good to be true". She was supposedly extremely intelligent, but even though the connections between her and the nuns in the story were staring her in the face, she seemed to take an age to start putting two and two together.

An engaging historical mystery/adventure beginning in the 16th century and reaching all the way through to the present day. Plenty of movement as Helen Bryan spins out her plot to encompass events in both Spain and South America as five young girls attempt to escape a dreadful fate at the hands of the Spanish Inquisition. Their rescuers are a group of Spanish nuns who do everything in their power to deliver the girls safely to a new life in the New World. Helen Bryan sets the scene well and her depiction of life in a 16th century convent was particularly good. Throughout the novel the girls are given plenty of time to develop and we learn a great deal about them. They're solidly written and believable characters and I had no problem bonding with them. By far the better parts of the novel are the historical elements. Once the plot reaches modern times and the solving of 'the mystery' I felt let down. There are too many long reaches, coincidences, and the character of Menina isn't robust enough to carry events forward. For an intelligent woman she really isn't too bright. Helen Bryan provides Menina with such massive clues as to her link with the nuns even I'd worked it out before she did. The big 'reveal' when all the questions are finally answered and the mystery solved is quite interesting but falls a little flat as it's not difficult to work out in advance. To summarise I'd say; The Sisterhood is an uplifting, engaging novel with much to say about the power of women and their ability to survive and endure. Well worth a read if you're a fan of historical fiction.

I got this through the kindle daily deal and I am so glad I did. It is reminiscent of the Da Vinci code.
The lead characters are all women who have been badly treated and are running for their lives. We also learn the secret of the Sisterhood which is amazing. Well worth reading this and will look out for anything else by Helen Bryan. .

This book wsas interesting because it was 'something different'. The journey through the ages and the sometimes unexpected links holds the attention and it has a satisfactory ending.
