Book # 45 - The Sisters Antipodes

The Sisters Antipodes

Jane Alison

277 pages

Dysfunctional family x 2.

Two families meet in  Australia.  The fathers are diplomats.  The mothers are both young and beautiful. The children, two sets of sisters, are practically alike.  Within a year, the parents swap partners, and each family gets reconfigured.

Major consequences for the girls who never felt loved by their fathers.

Painful and poignant memoir. Written with honesty. Soul searching without psychobabble. Every little girl needs her daddy, and when this basic need is not fulfilled, the ramifications into adulthood may prove tragic.
