Big Little Sister
In 1986 Izzie and Robin meet, and are drawn to the Faerie Tree on the banks of the Hamble. The Faerie Tree is reputed to grant wishes, so amongst the ribbons, necklaces, and letters, Robin and Izzie wish for a life together. Just a few hours later, tragedy sets events in motion and their lives take separate paths.
In the winter of 2006, after Izzie’s husband dies, Izzie and Robin’s paths cross once again. They have each faced their own heartbreaking moments, and the tragedies of those moments have colored their memories of their last days together in different ways.
Izzie’s daughter Claire is the voice of calm in the rising tide of emotional outbursts.
This is a story of family relationships, love, and loss. A powerful telling of the events that shaped the lives of the characters, the story unfolds with sensitivity and warmth.
Author Jane Cable developed believable characters that are flawed and anguished, and yet ultimately strong and determined to get beyond their pasts and accept the love each has for the other.
The Faerie Tree was an enjoyable read from page one to the end. Once I started it, I had a hard time putting it down. I recommend it to all fans of women's contemporary fiction.
Why The Faerie Tree? You’ll have to read to find out.
