I was inspired to read the novel because of the title, “Two Sisters”.I was somewhat like Muriel in that I was a middle child. I have had a lot of life experiences. I was a tomboy for my dad,
because there were no sons for Dad - just girls.I also came from a dysfunctional family that didn’t have the ability to fulfill purposes accepted as beneficial or normal.I also liked Pia who announced that Jesus Christ was her personal savior and said the Bible taught her everything
she needed to know. My mother constantly nagged me and my other sisters (Good Lord rest her soul).I liked excursions with my mom, but that was a long time ago.Somewhere in time, everything went awry.Wouldn’t it be nice, if real life could be worked out in a good way like a good novel?Truthfully, what family doesn’t have some kind of secret?Life is too short to hold grudges. I am of the opinion (be it so humble) that Mary Hogan’s well-written novel can help readers with real life, and working out some of the kinks that tend to hold us back from enjoying life.It is always better to forgive... forgetting is the hard part.I believe each of us can learn something new, and even take away something good from this novel.

    A family of 5 that didn't start on the best foundation and from the parents to the children they all had issues.  The book unfolds in the present with flashbacks into the past when the parents of the family met and "fell" in love.  As a reader, I definitely had to pay attention as it switched in the middle of the chapter to the past and then back to the present story.

    As a product of a fantastic family and childhood, it is hard to read about characters who have it rough from the moment they are born and well into adulthood.  It was easy to care for Muriel as she is the outside and you just want her to find an independence and depart from the dramas of her family.  I definitely talked straight to the characters in this book, they irritated me a few times!

    A good read.

    Being a middle child myself, I could relate to 'Muriel'. Overall it was an
    enjoyable book.
