Great Read
4 stars By Karen, Feb 05 2013
Angel Sister is an intricately woven novel, which is both well written and captivating.  The storyline demonstrates how circumstances can often trap people in situations they find very difficult to overcome without relying on the power of God.  Angel Sister speaks of devoted and committed love, cruel rejection, forgiveness and healing within the fabric of intertwined family relationships.  It was well-worth a read and I would certainly recommend it.
