I've just finished another great book: Blood Sisters by Barbara and Stephanie Keating. I found it hard to put down, so haven't accomplished much the last few days! It begins in the Kenya Highlands, 1957, with three young girls from very different backgrounds. They become blood sisters and vow that nothing will ever come between them. But as they grow up, love rivalries, broken promises and the tensions and violence of a newly independant Kenya threaten to destroy their bond. Camilla Broughton-Smith becomes a fashion model in 1960's London. Sarah Mackay is sent to university in her native Ireland, an experience which cements her determination to return to her beloved Africa. Hannah van der Beer's family struggles to retain the family farm which has been in the family for several generations. Time after time their strong bond of friendship is almost destroyed. Blood Sisters is the story of painful transition from the ideals and dreams of childhood to the reality of adult life as political unrest, violence and savage murder darken their lives and loves.
I've resolved to not start another book until I get a few quilting projects finished, so check back in a day or two. I'm working on getting borders on a Fall wallhanging - will share photos with you soon...
