About this deal

It’s here in their new home as survivors of the holocaust although emotionally wounded they find peace.

Having read Heather Morris' previous two books, I could not wait to read Three Sisters and it really did not disappoint. For the most of it, I found I was slumped over my kindle, looking forward to reaching the conclusion.The Kennedy sisters, Molly, Alex and Sam have a Christmas tradition - a night out, just the three of them, sisters together. The end was filled with some events, but it was predictable enough and the readers can feel that something was not told but could be guessed. Owen Mullins, an author I have never heard of before, has completely blown me away with this novel and I cannot recommend it highly enough, it’s more than a 5 star read and people who take their chances on this will not be disappointed. And later in Israel, where survivors worked to rebuild their lives with the mental and visible scars serving as constant reminders of all that they had experienced and those they had lost.

The theme of the sisters was to ‘always protect’ each other - a ‘promise’ they made to their father.I felt so invested in the lives of the three sisters, and as a reader you become so connected to them, especially as this book spans more than just their lives in Auschwitz, looking at both before and after, meaning they become the three-dimensional people they deserve to be.

The book includes themes of rape, death, divorce, and sexual harassment allegations however the execution is poor on all fronts. Between the three Holocaust books by this author “The Tattooist of Auschwitz” and “Cilka's Journey” this one is the weakest. I couldn’t take their conversations seriously as their immaturity and babyish behaviour and dialogue took away from the harrowing storyline, the true grit and the heaviness of the times. This third book definitely has a more hopeful and uplifting tone than the previous two, which I also appreciated. Magda, only 17, stays with her mother and grandfather, hiding out in a neighbour’s attic or in the forest when the Nazi militia come to round up friends, neighbours and family.Thank you to NetGalley and Macmillan Audio for an arc of this novel in exchange for my honest review. Aš labai džiaugiuosi, kad išgyvenę žmonės pasakoja savo istorijas, kad jos keliauja iš lūpų į lūpas ir pasiekia mūsų visu širdis. Heather Morris can do no wrong in my book and I look forward to reading more of her work in the future.
