Review: My Sister’s Voice

my sister's voice, cover

What do you do when you discover your whole life was a lie? In Mary Carter’s unforgettable new novel, one woman is about to find out…

At twenty-eight, Lacey Gears is exactly where she wants to be. An up-and-coming, proudly Deaf artist in Philadelphia, she’s in a relationship with a wonderful man and rarely thinks about her difficult childhood in a home for disabled orphans. That is, until Lacey receives a letter that begins, “You have a sister. A 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 biological parents. But the truth about Monica’s life, their  brief shared past, and the reason for the twins’ separation is far from simple. And for every one of Lacey’s questions that’s answered, others are raised, more baffling and profound.

Complex, moving, and beautifully told, My Sister’s Voice is a novel about sisterhood, love of every shape, and the stories we cling to until real life comes crashing in…

Every love leaves and echo…

I couldn’t be more happier with book! I loved everything about it. The bond that the sister’s had even after all the years of being separated was amazing. It was like nothing had ever happened or changed since they weren’t together. It had some great family secrets that don’t get revealed till the end of the story. It had a great plot and character development. It’s clear the author did her research on how Deaf people feel and what they go through in a hearing world. Very well written and easy to read. I gave it 4 out of 5 stars.
