Sisters of the Heart and Snow

Sisters of the Heart and Snow

by Margaret Dilloway

Overview:Rachel and Drew Snow might be sisters, but their lives have followed completely different paths. Rachel is happily married but hasn’t returned to her childhood home since her strict father kicked her out after an act of careless teenage rebellion. Drew, her younger sister, pursued a passion for music but longs for the stability that has always eluded her.

But when their deferential Japanese mother, Hikari, is diagnosed with dementia, the sisters come together to locate a particular book she asks for in a rare moment of lucidity. The book—an epic saga of female samurai in twelfth-century Japan—reveals truths about Drew and Rachel’s relationship that ends up connecting them in ways that turn their differences into assets.

Faith Bowers (08/02/19): This is another two stories and two separate times format of novel. This historical story is Samurai woman warrior legend in the late 12th century. It was well researched. I did not find the antagonists, (parents) in the modern story believable but the sisters, (daughters) do go through personal growth during their reading of the Samurai story. Their challenges are believable. I enjoyed the novel and recommend it as good historical fiction with some chick lit thrown in.
