Pieces of My Sister's Life

A novel by

Two sisters who shared everything. One unforgivable moment. And a second chance...

Once, Kerry and Eve Barnard did everything together: sailing the Block Island harbor with their father, listening to their neighbor Justin's magical fairytales, and all the while longing for their absent mother. They were twin girls arm in arm, secrets entwined between two hearts. Until the summer of their seventeenth birthday, when their extraordinary bond was shattered. And thirteen years later, it will take all the courage they can summon to put the pieces back together--at a time when it matters most...

Kerry hadn't heard from Justin in years--and his news takes her breath away: her sister is ill. And so Kerry must return home to confront Eve, to heal their old wounds, and to build a relationship with Eve's young daughter, who sees in Kerry the mother she once had. But most of all, Kerry must try to forgive her sister for her crimes...and both must forgive themselves for the one tragic night that changed everything...

Beautiful, heartbreaking and insightful, this captivating debut novel explores the unbreakable bonds of sisterhood in a story that will resonate with readers of Judy Blume's Summer Sister, Jodi Picoult's My Sister's Keeper and Elisabeth Robinson's The True and Outstanding Adventures of the Hunt Sisters. In PIECES OF MY SISTER'S LIFE, Elizabeth Joy Arnold paints a wise and sensitive portrait of the passions that shape our lives, the pain of dealing with a loved one's illness, and the incredible gift it is to be a sister.

Genre: Mystery
