When the younger sister she thought was dead arrives on her doorstep, followed closely by a gun-wielding Russian gangster, a shady New York lawyer, and a desperate Connecticut housewife, Shae-Lynn is forced to grapple with the horrible truth she discovers about her sister's life, and with an ominous question: Will her return result in a monstrous act of greed, or one of sacrifice?
"This is a masterfully unfolded, absolutely engrossing story as smart and sassy as it is wise." (Booklist)

I have never understood why Tawni O'Dell hasn't gotten the praise and recognition she so richly deserves. This is her third book I have listened to, and each one has left me so impressed by her characters, and her wonderful writing style. Her books are always set in the Pennsylvania coal country, and her writing brings real insight into the coal industry and the men who work it. Her books do touch on adult subject matter, but they do not dwell on it. I would highly recommend this book! The reader is dead on for the main character.

If you could sum up Sister Mine in three words, what would they be?
Complex, gripping, poignant
What did you like best about this story?
I liked how the main character never pitied herself. She had every reason to and every reason to cast blame on lots of other people for the things that happened to her but she didn't. She was very interesting and unique.
Which character – as performed by Renee Raudman – was your favorite?
The main character
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Both. The way this book exposes the dynamics between the characters is pretty incisive and amazing.
Any additional comments?
