Overview

"That afternoon Mr. Jones read to them from Tom Sawyer, and when he reached the part about blood brothers, Judith knew just what she and Jasmine should do. Hidden behind an oak tree, the little girls jabbed their forefingers with a thumbtack and mixed their blood to become honest-to-goodness blood sisters. In their childish hearts they vowed to be best friends forever and ever." A mysterious envelope... A shocking obituary... A tumultuous trip to the past... Judith Blackwell returns to Cedar Crest trying to understand the sudden death of her dearest childhood friend, Jasmine Morrison. But her questions seem only to raise more questions. What is the dark secret of the sleepy little town she once called home? Why hadn't Jasmine been in contact with her? And where is God in all this? In her quest for the truth in matters of the heart and faith, Judith turns to a dedicated police detective. Together they form a plan that could either save Cedar Crest or send them tumbling down the same desperate road Jasmine found herself on.

This was a painful book to read. The focus on racial prejudices and intense bigotry was hard to digest. The story, though, was well written. The characters were well developed and dug themselves deeply into your heart. You suffer along with the "blood sisters" and find yourself feeling extreme sadness for all they endure. The atrocities of racism and prejudices is astounding. But I am aware that these ideals still exist today and it is hard to know that there are people who believe this way. It breaks my heart to think a person is judged based on the color of his/her skin or their religious beliefs or their sexual preferences. While the subject matter was difficult to endure, the fact that there are individuals who believe that we are all God's children and are willing to take a stand against such horrible beliefs is uplifting. It was difficult to suffer through the viewpoints espoused by some of the characters. But knowing that others were working behind the scenes to change the climate in Cedar Crest kept you hoping and praying! And prayers were a big theme throughout this book. Small and simple...or childlike...the prayers lifted were an important part of traveling through this difficult environment. I am so pleased that this book was chosen as our book club book this month.

I usually enjoy a good mystery, but this one was a disappointment. I had a hard time believing some of the plot. For example, the Morrisons welcomed Judith into their circle much too quickly. And the suspense was only mild. Much of the plot seemed like fluff to me. The storyline was intriguing, but the development could be improved.

I had a hard time getting my hands on a copy of BLOOD SISTERS--it was always checked out at my local library! This book contains lots of detail and has well-developed characters, a believable storyline & dialogue, and a suspenseful plot. I will highly recommend this book.
