    Everyone has scars, Maddie They just hide them in different ways Beautifully written and with a vague hint of lore and mystery, The Orchid Sister was simply magical In the wake of a challenging upbringing, two sisters prove that their bond is greater than the bad things that come their way This suspenseful women s fiction novel is a beautiful story, and one with many layers.About the BookThe girl with the scars The girl with many masks Maddie has many names, and many ways she is described by others It is hard for people to see past the scars that Maddie wears, marks from the plane crash that killed her parents Marks of a survivor, though they don t always feel that way When Maddie met Jack, handsome and adventurous, she fell for him quickly Jack was one of the first men that didn t recoil from her scars He sees Maddie as the beautiful person she is, inside and out Her scars are just on display.Maddie is fascinated with masks, and she also creates her own masks Perhaps this is part...

    The Orchid Sister was an alright book, but one I know I ll essentially not remember reading in a year or two However, I guess I can say it simply didn t quite speak to me, but it might speak to you At first, I wasn t too invested, but after reading about a third I decided that I ll stick with it to the end because I just want to find out what happens to the characters You could say this is one of those steady books where everything is written quite simply and it progresses smoothly, there are no slumps in the storytelling or anything like that But at the same time, there are no real tense moments either For me, it lacked a spark It s both a story of sisterly love, as well as a story of moving on Perhaps it was just that there were too many things it was trying to talk about Anyway, I find that I have nothing to say in the review, and I guess that tells a story on its own.Triggers include PTSD, missing persons, plane crashes, fire and seve...

    I haven t picked up anything by this author, Anne D LeClaire before I chose to read her latest novel THE ORCHID SISTER I selected this to read because I liked the interesting premise and I was attracted by the beautiful cover design I can t resist a novel which is about sisters, although don t ask me why After her parents were killed in a plane crash, Maddie decided that she no longer wanted to be close to anyone again except her sister, Kat Growing up, the two girls had always been there for one another Now, Maddie has decided to risk her heart by forming a relationship with Jack, a pilot, but another plane crash devastates her all over again She needs Kat, but her sister, a journalist followed a story to the Yucatan and is now missing Maddie must confront her greatest fear and board a plane, perhaps to find that the one person she had left has gone forever The intriguing story line totally captured my attention from the start as I found myself transported to a different world, planting me firmly into the life of Maddie With perfect pacing, I was totally absorbed all the way through, until the fulfilling conclusion The author s writing style was very appealing, brilliantly encapsulating the core of the scenes that I was visualising whilst reading Anne D LeClaire s special way with the narrative made this complex and enthralling novel quite distinct Overall, THE ORCHID SISTER is a very worthwhil...

    The bond between the two sisters, Madison and Kat, was a powerful one Since the death of their parents years before in a plane crash, they were the only family that remained Given this attachment, it made sense that Madison would become alarmed at her sister s extended absence Unfortunately, there were other things about the book that just didn t make sense to me Also, I felt like I was being told things throughout the book instead of seeing them happen or feeling them through the character s perspective Because of this, I had a difficult time connecting with the characters I should point out that this is my personal opinion thou...

    TWITTER TUMBLR INSTAGRAM Warning the entirety of this review contains spoilers Writing a book about pregnant brown women pregnant brown teens being forced to abort their babies so the fetuses might be used to rejuvenate white women is never a good idea It s most certainly not a story a white woman should write.Let s go by parts The book is told from multiple perspectives, with the main ones being Maddie s and Kat s The supporting cast consists of multiple Mexican characters, and I swear I wanted to pull out my hair every time I started reading one of their chapters The Spanglish in which it s narrated was incredibly irritating and distracting, it severely ruined the prose in my opinion, because it was pointless and added nothing to the characters saying calle or saying street is the same, saying padre and saying father is the same, saying cerveza and saying beer is the same, et cetera Adding the words doesn t make the characters any Latino than they already are and neither does their exotification and their obsession with mysticism As a matter of fact, that only adds to the pile of already there offensive stereotypes cheating men, temptress women, magical old ladies, and characters with visions to the past in which the protagonists are being sacrificed to the gods Nothing I, as a Latina woman, appreciate I don...

    I feel like I didn t really connect with this book as much as others had The plot sounded interesting, but when I started the book, I was immediately bothered by how frequently the author used pronouns and how similar every sentence sounded It didn t flow well to me, and that very much affected how I saw the rest of the book Every sentence w...

    The build up was incredible in this book but when you finally get to the climax it was over within pages which seemed a shame a bit of an anti climax I thought
