Storm Sisters

Storm Sisters
Afton Rorvik

 Written in a memoir style, the author talks about the women who were there for her and her mother when her mother faces a rapid decline into terminal illness. These sisters of the heart who were with her during her storm were called storm sisters. These are women who helped her through depression and grief.

I was touched by the authenticity and feeling of community that the author portrayed in her story. While it wasn't the book I expected (I was expecting more on how to be a storm sister), I liked the stories and the feeling of family that the author talked about having with her friends. She did give a few tips, but the book was more about dealing with storms as they come instead of how to be a storm sister. It's a book that I would recommend to anyone dealing with storms in their life, particularly the death of a loved one.

I received this book free of charge from Goodreads in exchange for my honest review.
