Bittersweet is a story of sisters. The story shows the love, the envy, the jealousy, the admiration, and many more emotions between the girls. This book will have you laughing and crying with the excitement and complications which are the lead up to the planning of a wedding.
Some thoughts while reading….
There are so many factors influencing families and sisters and their relationship. While reading this novel, I reminisced on my own relationship with my sister. There were many times throughout the book that I could actually see similarities between the fictional characters and my own life.
What is it that keeps a family together? What is it that tears them apart? What makes some people check out and vanish from their family’s lives? What happens to keep a family happy?
I think with my siblings, there is a high level of respect and we choose to be kind to each other. When I look generally at my extended family, including my in laws, added to respect and choice – there is a whole lot of prayer and God’s presence. The peace of God is evident. I love my family.
