Review: The Winter Sister

The Winter Sister The Winter Sister by Megan Collins
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Sylvie lives with her regrets that holds her hostage in her own life. She lives a life devoid of color and happiness and punishes herself daily for the part she played in the night her sister, Persephone, didn't come home. Sixteen years pass before her aunt calls her home to care for her mother who is undergoing cancer treatment.

As Sylvie lives with her mother once again, takes her to her appointments, and finds unusual allies, more details fall into place. There were many secrets during her childhood that slowly come to light. The story is well paced and the characters are complex. The heart of this book is figuring out who killed Persephone but, in order to reveal the killer, the motive also has to be established which unfolds throughout the story.

I liked the book a lot. It was a shocking conclusion but it also left me a little unsatisfied without full closure. My preference would have been to have the story continue a year or two after the big reveal. I grew to care about the characters and wanted to know what they did next.
