Tämä arvostelu kirjoitettiin LibraryThingin Varhaisia arvostelijoita varten.The island Sisters follows four close friends as they meet in college and proceed through their lives. All of them face struggles and trauma both current and past. I loves the different cultures and perspectives. It was a rather depressing read though. Which is understandable since it tackles sensitive issues like domestic violence, neglect and sexual assault. The bond of these woman was heartwarming and I loved the banging of their bangle bracelets (you'll need to read it to understand). The novel was moving and emotional. ( )
A strong, very enjoyable, well written book.
This is an amazing book! The author took great lengths in developing these characters. You will love the relationships between these women and you will be heartbroken also.
Definitely read this book

Four women from Haiti, St. Thomas, and Guam meet at a college counseling session for first-year students and learn they have a shared history of abuse. Dubbing themselves the "island sisters," their unyielding friendship is their touchstone across oceans, through labyrinths of forced marriages and violent men, motherhood, and their dreams of freedom.Strong-willed and hot-headed Monique, quiet and romantic Cecilia, devout Lanei, and determined Ella are four friends who seem to makeup for what the other lacks. But no matter what is happening in their lives or the struggles they face, they share an unbreakable bond of friendship that serves as their anchor, helping and supporting each other through and through.To succeed, each woman must make choices that will challenge her long-held cultural beliefs, choices that will come with consequences, in the pursuit of her own individual freedom.An empowering narrative told from alternating perspectives of each friend, Micki Berthelot Morency has crafted four remarkable and hard-to-forget women whose fates are bound together by culture, by history, and most importantly, by a deep, irrevocable friendship. Heartfelt and deeply moving, The Island Sisters is an important story about hope and determination.
