Not very goodauthor was all over the place with various story lines which seemed really unrealistic This book has the most preposterous story line ever I can t believe I wasted my time reading this book When the big climax comes it last all of about 5 pages with the most ridiculous explanation Save our self the time and energy and read something else This book started off strong with a interesting premise twin sisters separated at birth seemingly because one is hearing and the other is Deaf As 20 somethings they learn of each other s existence and the story is off and running and then it s meandering and then it s wandering aimlessly for a whileIt felt like this author wanted to do too many things and just couldn t keep it together She wanted a mystery story she wanted to share Deaf culture she wanted to write a uasi romance strong female character chick lit story There were too many times when we lost the storyline and the character development because there was a pages long rant about face theft or a totally out of place sex fantasy I don t know about The Watchmakers Lady you but when I am griev A good premise with an astonishingly bad follow through I m usually able to suspend disbelief for a good story but this tortured tale was just ridiculous What doou do when Instinct for Freedom Finding Liberation Through Living you discoverour whole life was a lie Mary Carter has placed the reader right at the heart of an intense cleverly crafted moving and emotional storyline replete with plenty of twists and turnsShe has created believable well developed inspiring characters who absorb ou into their lives with th. A proudly deaf artist in Philadelphia Lacey Gears is in a relationship with a wonderful man and rarely thinks about her childhood in a home for disabled orphans That is until Lacey receives a letter that begins 'You have a sister
Er Monica is not satisfied being Lacey s sister and friend she wants to BE Lacey There are some psychological issues hereThe ending had a lot of surprises that I didn t see coming I thought it was too pit pat considering the seriousness of the situation and the lies that were told but I enjoyed the book enough not to take away a star LOVED LOVED LOVED the part when Lacey goes to church to be healed Laughed my butt off Highly recommend this one a very interesting book well written and an insight into some of the issues important to Deaf people This book started out strong I liked the characters I was fascinated by the glimpse into the deaf world But then the story just got strained and down right weird Many of the interesting mysteries in the story were explained away with unsatisfactory and unbelievable answers I m disappointed because I like Carter s writing style and the title of the book is brilliant I keep wishing that this was the rough draft and Carter could re write the ending I wanted very much to like this book It had the potential to be a very moving story about family and personal identity However it read like an early draft than a polished final product While I learned a lot of interesting facts about Deaf Culture I feel Carter did this too often through exposition instead of letting the reader learn from the actions and dialogue of the characters The flow of the story was constantly interrupted while the author took the time to explain why or how the characters communicated in the ways that they did These explanations were usua. Mple And for every one of Lacey's uestions that's answered others are raised baffling and profound My Sister's Voice is a beautifully written novel about sisterhood love and the stories we cling to until real life comes crashing in.

Twin to be exact' Learning that her identical hearing twin Monica experienced the normal childhood she was denied resurrects all of Lacey's grief and she angrily sets out to find Monica and her parents But the truth is far from si.
