I Wish We Weren’t Related
It is slow to get started, but boy, does it pick up steam. Many sisters harbor resentment against each other. This is a story about a family with three grown women, a famous mother, and a long-dead dad — or is he? There is a family secret that no one is willing to tell. The main character is an attorney who works with her best friend, who soon will ascend to partnership in the firm. The main character, Reeva, has a solid income, a new boyfriend, and a beloved cat. What more could anyone ask for? Reeva’s perfectly coordinated life is about to become unhinged as she must reunite with her younger sisters to properly mourn their father’s death. There are religious ceremonies which none of them know and many friends and relations who had been lost to them.
Worst of all, Reeva must face her youngest and most beautiful sister who is about to marry Reeva’s ex-boyfriend, captured in a most sordid affair.
Can Reeva cope with all this? Can she endure the presence of the family who have hurt her the most? If the reader can identify with any of this, it is a most delightful read.
