A prequel novella that comes before the book I will be reviewing later today.  The reader is introduced to two sisters - Birdie and Tess as children before a major life event occurs that will send their childhoods into a tail spin.  Both girls are affected by this event and will react in different ways. I enjoyed the introduction to the girls knowing that I would have a whole book to follow with a story, so it was nice to start in their childhood.  I would have loved to learn a little more about their mother, but it was obvious that her absence was a part of the story.  I just wanted more! The narration was interesting and continued to the full novel, so I will talk more about that later today. As a concept I like prequel novellas, but I definitely like to read them before I dive into the book and/or series.

The Undertaking of Tess is a poignant novella. This powerful little book gives the background of Tess, telling the story of her childhood. The story of Tess continues in the beautiful novel, The Resurrection of Tess Blessing. I recommend all of Lesley Kagen’s novels. She never disappoints.

I finished this novella in one day!  I couldn't stop turning the pages. What great characters.
