Another Wonderful Novel by Maureen Lee!
on 18 August 2006
Having read ALL Maureen Lee's novels, I eagerly awaited the release of Kitty & Her Sisters with great excitement! I can honestly say that I was totally gripped from start to finish and didn't want the book to end! The story is written with such warmth, love and attention to detail, and the characters are so believable, I found myself totally caught up in their lives and the experiences they had. Unlike Maureen's other books, this is written in the first person, which worried me a little initially - but I am happy to say that it only served to make the book even more interesting and gripping. Kitty, Claire, Norah and even Aileen involve the complexities and differing personalities that can be found in many families, but they all have their redeeming features and I grew to really like them all. Kitty faces many traumas and much heartache throughout her life, but ultimately she emerges as the sort of heroine I can totally relate to and admire. I would not hesitate to recommend this book to anyone. I only hope it won't be too long before there is another new release from Maureen Lee - she is a wonderful talent and a brilliant storyteller. Long may she continue - she's the best!
