Maria and Emma are half sisters separated by six years. They have never been close, in fact, they’ve only been together several times during their adult lives. When they meet at their mother’s funeral, it is a surprise to both of them when Maria invites Emma to visit her at her rental home on the Spanish Coast. Two years pass before Emma takes her up on the offer. During the six days that they are together, the sisters reminisce, confess and analyze themselves and other members of their family.
A Sister in My House is the kind of book I enjoy reading, but six months later I won’t remember very much about it. It is well written and interesting, but just doesn’t have enough depth to it to really grab me.
