Publisher's Summary

Cassie has spent her married life doing everything right - making sure her children have the perfect lives, being a devoted wife to her husband and a dutiful daughter-in-law to his mother, even when her patience has been tested. Although it has left her so exhausted that 'wine o'clock' comes a little earlier each afternoon. But she wouldn't change a thing, she's certain, until temptation comes her way....
Her sister, Coco, runs a vintage dress shop, and sure, she's shied away from commitment over the years. It's just that Coco believes men complicate things more than necessary, and she's got enough to contend with looking after her business and her staff, who seem to rely on her more and more for relationship advice. But who is she to give advice when her own life is so simple?
Watching over them is grandmother Pearl, tucked away in her little house in Delaney Square with her chickens, busy with her poker club and a secret lover. But something is keeping her awake at night. Was she right to do what she did all those years ago? Surely, if she were right, she wouldn't be thinking about it so often now....
And then there's Elsa, the polished face of daytime TV who's battled demons of her own in the past and come out on top. Now Elsa faces one final battle - but this one will require more bravery than anything that's come before.
Read by Caroline Lennon.

pleasant

I enjoyed it on the whole but found the incessant repeating of certain details very frustrating! Elsas need to pay for what she had been done repeated 7 or 8 times for example . felt a little too much like being spoon fed too often

Devoted Sisters...

What did you like most about Between Sisters?

Between Sisters for me was a brilliant listen as with all the wonderful characters who really mattered to each part of the story. I loved how the author brought them into each part of the storyline.
Coco and Cassie are devoted to each other simply because they had to be as their mother left them both when they were small. Coco was only a baby therefore, she does not really remember her mother she only remembers her father always being sad. Cassie remembers her Mum, and she carries the heartache of her leaving them throughout her life which you will see through the main storyline.
The sisters are the two main characters, there are supporting characters which really mattered to the storyline and each of them had an important part to play.
This book had it all, broken hearts, broken promises, alcohol dependency and so much more.

What other book might you compare Between Sisters to, and why?

I would compare this to all of Cathy Kelly's books as she has a wonderful gift of understanding human emotions and how they can control your past and present.

What does Caroline Lennon bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Caroline Lennon has a gift of giving each of the characters a separate voice, not only that she brought the story alive through a way of not only narrating Cathy Kelly's own writing but acting out the story - in fact she did it so well I knew immediately who she was talking about simply by the tone of her voice!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

YES!!! I was always stealing moments to listen to more of Coco and Cassie's life plus their darling grandmother Pearl.

Any additional comments?

simply I loved it... one of the best books I have received from Audible..

Excellent!

Any additional comments?

I haven't read this author before as I had the impression (probably due to the covers and titles) that her novels would be of the fluffy, with no substance variety of chic lit. However, something about the synopsis of Between Sisters attracted me and I bought it as a 'palette cleanser' between crime fiction tales. In the event, I found it to be a lovely, absorbing story. All of the characters were well written and engaging. A really good read/listen.

I couldn't finish this book

Would you try another book written by Cathy Kelly or narrated by Caroline Lennon?

I would not try another book written by Cathy Kelly. I purchased this book because Caroline Lennon was narrating but even Caroline could not help me on this one.

Has Between Sisters put you off other books in this genre?

No - but I won't be looking for Cathy kelly

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

I find Caroline Lennon generally pretty good. I think it was the subject matter that created the problem.

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

No I couldn't finish it.
