    Reading this book was like eating at McDonalds. It’s fast and easy but I feel so unpleasant afterwards.

    Well, I finished it. I did skip parts after about 1/2 way through but I finished. All I can say is ...PLEASE!...I think it had potential to be a great book, I liked the writing style for the most part and it would have been a nice quick read if I wasnt so annoyed. The Joe character was well done I wanted to get to know him - until he met Meg. There was just way too much sap in here for me. There are lines like "as much as I could love anything without you. But yeah". EwwAfter 10 days this woman decides that she is in love and not only that but her 5 year old who has never had a father is suddenly ready to have him as her Daddy and isnt at all worried that he is taking some of her Mama's attention away... PLEASE!Not 1 but 2 sisters after years of being alone fall in love at first site - uh huh that would happen.Then to top it all off Claire has a brain tumor and turns out the ONLY doctor in the entire country who can see that it could indeed be operated on instead of her dying - is Joe. Sorry I have to say it again... PLEASE!The entire book is full of this type of thing.And of course they all live happily ever after.Maybe I am just way too much of a cynic to have found this enjoyable.

    I woke up with a major book hangover the morning after finishing this one. It was a top-notch read like so many of Kristin Hannah’s others. It’s an emotional story of two sisters finding their way back to one another after being sort of estranged. I laughed, I cried, Ifelt.Be warned - tears are inevitable.

    “If love is the answer, could you please rephrase the question?”Another great novel by Kristin Hannah!Between Sisters had a blend of romance, despair, and hope impacting a very dysfunctional family.Two sisters have been estranged for decades. Meghann Dontess and Claire Cavenaugh grew up together until events in their lives separated them. Meghann the oldest, took care of Claire when their mother was more interested in dating and later on acting than taking care of the baby. Meghann did everything for Claire but in the present, they don't even talk much to each other. The occasional phone calls always seem to be forced. Meghann is a successful divorce attorney. Her firm is sought by many. Her plate at work is always full without time for anything else. When she needs company, she just takes a younger man to bed from a bar she frequents and that's that. Meghann realizes she has issues. She has been undergoing therapy for years but she tries never to share things that are too personal with Harriet, her therapist. She prefers to joke about it than to admit she's lonely. Claire Cavenaugh is a single mother. She works hard at her father's resort. She came to live with Sam, her father when she was just a little girl. She has good friends she can trust and she's happy with her life. The one thing missing is the love of a man. Someone to hold her and share her the rest of her life.Shortly, both women will have a chance at happiness and a chance to connect with each other again. “They were always doing that to each other, misinterpreting, imagining the worst. No wonder every conversation bruised one or the other.”It's hard to stop reading a book by Kristin Hannah. Once you start it, the world she creates keeps you trapped. Between Sisters is not an exception. I liked both main characters. Meghann with her blunt and straightforward personality. Claire with her content and happy attitude. From the beginning, I was rooting for them to bury the hatchet and forgive each other. In a way, they reminded me of Kate and Tully from Firefly Lane. As with such book, it's probably a good idea to have some tissues close by.Cliffhanger: No4/5 FangsMrsLeif's Two Fangs About It | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram

    Kristin Hannah hat mich schon so oft mit ihren Geschichten zu Tränen gerührt, daher habe ich mich auf ihr neustes Werk wieder sehr gefreut.Mir fiel der Einstieg jedoch sehr schwer. Die Geschichte wird abwechselnd aus den Sichten der beiden Schwestern Meghann und Claire geschrieben und ab und zu erfährt man auch noch etwas von einem sonderbaren, geheimnisvollen Mann, den man lange so gar nicht zuordnen kann. Aber so ging es mir auch ein wenig mit den beiden Schwestern. Es war alles zu lange zu geheimnisvoll und ich habe nicht verstanden, worum es eigentlich gehen soll.Kristin Hannah hat immer ein tolles Gespür für herzzerreißende Familiengeschichten, doch dieses Mal sind die Augen trocken geblieben. Das mag vor allem daran liegen, dass das Buch erst ziemlich spät spannend und unterhaltsam wird. Sobald man alles verstanden hat, ist die Geschichte aber auch schon fast vorbei und so fällt es schwer eine Verbindung zu den Protagonisten zu bekommen.Gerade weil das Buch aber gegen Ende hin sehr viel rausreißt, gebe ich noch 3 Sterne. Die Geschichte ist unterhaltsam und im Großen und Ganzen lässt sich das Buch auch gut lesen.

    While this wasn't my favorite Kristin Hannah book, it won't be my last . I picked this book up because I was horribly missing my sister who are really my best friends. What I didn't realize until it was too late was these sisters in the book had a horrible relationship. It was tough to read about at times. I did enjoy their relationship development but I wish there were more happy moments in the book than what we got. I also had little interest of Joe's back story. I felt like his POV could have been left out and it would have made the book more enjoyable . I did love the part he played in the book, but I felt like he didn't need his own chapters .

    First time I read a Kristin Hannah book and was thoroughly impressed by her writing. I couldn't seem to put the book down because I was always wanting to know what was going to happen next. I was a little disappointed in how she wrote about the characters though in the sense I felt like we got to know who Joe was at the end of the book instead of at the beginning of the book. Meghann was a strong character playing a lawyer and a loving sister. I didn't have faith in Claire and Bobby's relationship at the beginning but as the story unfolded Bobby turned out a loving husband.Definitely would read another Hannah book again!!

    I had not read a Kristin Hannah in a while, and thank Marcia for choosing it as my Partner Read. I felt like I was visiting an old friend. She tells a story that is real and this one did not disappoint. Is it contemporary "chick lit"? Yes. But every once in a while this is exactly what I need. (like spending a rainy day curled up in your pi's) Between Sisters hit all my buttons...family, friendship, love, redemption and forgiving. I believe that we can retrieve relationships we have lost....not always the same one but sometimes a better one.A quick and very enjoyable read!

    It's 2 am and I couldn't go to sleep until I finished. I see a long list of Kristin Hannah books in my future reading. These are not my usual mysteries but are excellent people stories. The characters make you feel for them and care what will happen...which is why I ended up reading until 2 am.

    Kristen Hannah is a master at evoking every emotion possible in a single book. She and Nicolas Sparks must trade notes on how to rip out their readers hearts all while weaving such an amazing story that you just can't put the book down!I just finished Between Sisters and let me tell you: I laughed and cried, screamed and groaned through the entire book. I've read several of her other books and I have loved all of them. This book I especially enjoyed because it ended differently than some of her other books.Between Sisters is about...you guessed it: two sisters. But this isn't your typical sister BFF story. It's quite the opposite, in fact. Claire and Meg have let the past, and more specifically their childhood, keep them apart as adults. Sure, they keep in touch with each other, but it's more out of obligation than an affection for each other.Meg is a forty-something hot shot divorce attorney that doesn't believe in love. She has meaningless encounters with younger men to help fill the emptiness in her that she does not even realize is there. She has one true friend and sees a psychiatrist regularly. Meg refuses to truly acknowledge the damage her mother did to her, nor will she face her past. Add in the fact that she tells it like it is, and not in a very nice way, and you can see how she would be difficult to connect with.Claire is a thirty-something single mother that lives on the resort she owns with her father. Never having been married, her entire world revolves around her five year old daughter Ali. Claire used to dream of having a close relationship with Meg, but has accepted that it will never happen. While she longs to be close to her sister, she doesn't put much effort forth either.Their relationship changes when Claire meets Bobby Austin, has a whirlwind romance and calls Meg for her blessing on their upcoming wedding. Because Meg doesn't believe in love and specializes in divorce, she protests this union loudly. But Meg decides to be the supportive big sister and keep her harsh opinions to herself. She also convinces Claire to let her plan the wedding and their relationship grows from there.Add in a colorful cast of supporting characters, including their awful mother Ellie and Claire's loving father Sam, and this entire book is a "can't put down". I don't want to spoil the whole book for you, but I will tell you that the whirlwind wedding is not the biggest obstacle they will overcome together.

    Kristin Hannah never fails to write books that grab me and pull me into the storyline, as if I am participating. This is a story of family disconnect, of sisters who lose touch, due to circumstances that are beyond the control of children so young. It is about the ability of families to overcome obstacles, even those involving years of separation, and become what they once were, only better.The characters portrayed are easy to like and associate with. The joy, the pain, the heartache, of life itself , come forth as the story progresses. Claire is strong, and sucessful in her own right, while Meg feels that she is the strong and sucessful sister. As the joys and heartaches that they face reveal themselves, I found that they were equal, that they were handed situations that, regardless of where you are in life, require strength and character to pull through.Of course, there is romance entwined in the story, which always adds that happy touch to Kristin's books!

    darn you, Kristin Hannah! I can't take books like this where I'm sobbing through the second half but still unable to put it down! I already went through that with your other book, Firefly Lane, lol. I did enjoy the book, but felt like it was very over the top fairytale. Who of us doesn't wish for everything to work out perfectly, incurable illnesses to be miraculously healed, true love winning out despite all odds. Sometimes its nice to read a book like that where everything works out just as we would want and its all wrapped up beautifully in the epilogue. But sometimes its hard to read a book like that too, because its just not how real life works.

    En sevdiğim yazarlardan biridir Kristin Hannah ... Hikayeleri, karakterleri hep sıcacık, samimi gelir bana. Kitaplarında karakterlerini tekrar ediyor görünse de seviyorum bu kadının kitaplarını."Sevgi, birbirimizin hatalarını kabullenmekten geçer."Kristin Hannah demiş ki , kitabın sonunda " Ben yaşlandıkça diğer kadınlara ne kadar ihtiyacım olduğunu anlıyorum. Kadın ilişkilerini yazıp durmamın sebebi de bu sanırım. Annelerimiz, kızkardeşlerimiz ve arkadaşlarımız olmasa ne yapardık? Umarım bu kitabı bitirdiğinizde gider kızkardeşiniz arasınız.."Bu kitap da çok güzeldi , sadece birazcık , kardeşleri bağlayan o olay gecikti, ama beklediğime değdi.

    É o 2° livro que leio dela. Embora me tenha custado mais entrar na história deste, no final a sensação de ter lido algo maravilhoso é igual ao anterior. Com uma escrita extremamente simples, Kristin Hannah conta uma história super simples, que pode acontecer na vida de qualquer um de nós, mas que me agarra com uma intensidade que já poucos livros conseguem.Adorei as manas, a complexidade da relação delas.Faz-nos pensar nas nossas relações familiares.Adorei e recomendo.

    Am Anfang hat es sich echt gezogen und ich war schon kurz davor, es abzubrechen. Aber jetzt bin ich wahnsinnig froh, weitergelesen zu haben. Mal wieder konnte mich Kristin Hannah extrem tief berühren und ich hatte so oft Tränen in den Augen. Ich habe gebangt und gehofft. Eine tolle Story über zwei Schwestern und die Liebe!

    Between Sisters by Kristin Hannah, is another heartwarming story told by this truly phenomenal author! I have read most of Hannah's books, and I really enjoy her storytelling ability. Hannah truly draws readers in and never lets them go until the novel is over – IT’S GREAT! I loved this book and highly recommend it! You will not be disappointed! 5 stars for sure!Author Hannah starts us on the journey of an intriguing dilemma in which two sisters venture out in completely different directions in life but then they come together again at a crucial point in their lives. Will the sisters reconcile? Or is the past just to difficult to rehash in order to reconcile? That's the question that keeps the pages turning. Sisterly love is one of the strongest bonds I have personally experienced! I would be absolutely lost without my sister! So I was immediately drawn to this story just because of the title. First we meet big sister Meaghan, a hotshot divorce lawyer, being challenged by her highly-paid therapist to actually deal with these past sisterly issues but Meaghan just isn’t having it. She's almost a complete stereotype: wealthy and successful with an unsatisfying, empty personal life. On the flipside we meet the baby sister, Claire, a single mom with a simple happy life, and as luck would have it Claire has just become engaged to a hunky, country singer who is trying to make it BIG. Hannah begins by emphasizing the completely contrasting lifestyles between the sisters by describing Claire as a party-girl who dropped out of college, versus studious Meaghan who got a law degree. Claire who is just a simple girl who lives in the country, good with fixing things and is truly happy just being a mom versus Meaghan who is completely sophisticated as a work-alcoholic in the big city. So when Claire calls with her BIG NEWS…naturally Meaghan's first thought is not to congratulate her, but instead Meaghan offers to help Claire with a pre-nuptial agreement. Meaghan feels guilty about losing touch with Claire all those years ago. As children, they were left alone by a self-centered mother who stumbled into a starring television role. Meaghan had to then step in and take over as Mom to Claire. Meaghan actually did a good deed and saved Claire from a foster home with Social Services because she called Sam, Claire’s biological father, who swooped in and saved the day (for Claire at least). It was then Meaghan who ended up homeless, who put herself through college and law school.Following a traumatic episode with a ‘soon to be ex-husband’ of a client, Meaghan finds herself with all kinds of free time on her hands. Meaghan decides to visit Claire and actually volunteers to help with the wedding. If I have any complaints it would be that after this point the book becomes a little bit predictable but it is still a fantastic read none the less! I truly love Hannah's books, as they are so wonderfully narrated and they are always full of hope and love. Hannah portrays that so well with her latest book showing the true bond of two sisters, broken apart by life, yet love pulls them and those around them closer together. Love heals, as Hannah so clearly shows. LOVED THIS BOOK!! In my opinion, five stars truly doesn’t do this book justice! Ps ladies get your hankies because you will need them! As always, Happy reading my friends 

    Four stars seems like such a standard rating for me. I think my standard may have to become three stars...maybe it's that a I took a big break from reading so anything I pick up right now that holds my attention is "super-fun" to me! Anyway - between sisters was another great Kristin Hannah book. I'm in - I will now be reading all of her books! I've yet to dislike one. Though I find them all a little heavy in that I'm waiting for the tears to flow once I reach the 3/4 mark of the book, I love her style of writing and how she really draws you into the characters. There don't seem to be any villans or heroines in her books - just ordinary people with ordinary lives who are trying to make it in this world. This book is an exaggerated version of a dysfunctional family, which is something I feel everyone can relate to. The only thing I wish she had done differently was spent more time on the secondary relationship between the older sister and her man (I've already forgotten their names, my memory isn't the best...). I liked that storyline and wished she had better developed it, seeing as though we got so much time as to why the sister was in therapy, etc. Overall - would highly recommend. Bring the tissues (though not as many as you needed for Firefly Lane)!

    Die Autorin hatte mich mit ihrem letzten Buch sehr begeistert. "Die Nachtigall" war für mich ein historisches Lesehighlight in 2016 und ich habe seitdem sehnsüchtig nach einem weiteren Buch von Kristin Hannah Ausschau gehalten. In der Verlagsvorschau des Aufbau Verlags entdeckte ich dann den Titel "Die andere Schwester" und war begeistert. Ich wollte wissen, ob Kristin Hannah ihr letzten Buch toppen oder ob sie mindestens das von ihr gesestzte Level halten kann. Leider habe ich im Vorfeld nicht entdeckt, dass es dieses Buch schon gibt. In 2006 veröffentlichte der Ullstein Verlag das Buch unter dem Titel "Wer zu lieben wagt". Und damit ist schon fast alles gesagt. Die Autorin hat meine hoch gesteckten Erwartungen nicht erfüllt. Konnte sie auch nicht, da das vorliegende Buch Jahre vor ihrem Bestseller geschrieben wurde. Leider."Die andere Schwester" ist ein Gegenwartsroman, der eigentlich in die von mir sehr, sehr selten gelesene Sparte der Chick-Lit-Bücher einsortiert werden kann. Die Geschichte war für mich von Anfang bis zum Ende absolut vorhersehbar. Es gab, bis auf eine, keine wirklichen Überraschungen. Die jüngere Schwester Claire glaubt an die große Liebe, die sie endlich mit Mitte 30 gefunden hat, Meghann, die einige Jahre ältere, kann sich nach einer schweren Enttäuschung nicht mehr auf die Liebe einlassen. Grund dafür ist die Mutter. Eine schrecklich oberflächliche Person, die keine echten Muttergefühle aufweist, egoistisch ihre Karriere verfolgt, ihre kleinen Kinder viel allein gelassen hat und im schönsten und schlimmsten Moment im Leben ihrer Tochter zeigt, dass sie es nicht verdient hat "Mutter" genannt zu werden. Lange Zeit gibt es ein Geplänkel zwischen den Schwestern. Ein Hin und Her ohne Substanz. Die eine traut sich der anderen nicht zu sagen, was endlich mal gesagt werden müsste. Dafür bezahlt Meghann viel Geld an ihre Therapeutin, die ihr zwar helfen soll, sie sich aber permanent den Vorschlägen verweigert. Somit stapft sie seit Jahren immer auf der gleichen Stelle und ergießt sich in Selbstmittleid und Härte gegenüber anderen.Ich wurde einzig von dem misteriösen Joe angetrieben, das Buch weiterzulesen. Ihn hat ein schweres Schicksal getroffen, welches, das wird erst zum Schluss verraten. Doch bis Joe so langsam ins Rampenlicht rückt, musste ich im eBook bis ca. 60% warten! Das ist über die Hälfte des Buches!Leider konnte mich das Buch auch danach nicht abholen. Flache Dialoge, eine vor sich hin plätschernde Geschichte, unsympathische Charaktere und Hollywood pur. Ich suchte vergeblich nach der Kristin Hannah aus "Die Nachtigall", die damals Atmosphäre schaffen konnte und sprachlich einen grandiosen Roman vorgelegt hat. "Die andere Schwester" ist weit davon entfernt. Die meiste Zeit langweilte ich mich beim Lesen und wartete darauf dass das eintraf, was ich mir vorgestellt hatte. Immerhin waren das kleine Erfolgserlebnisse. Ich bin sehr traurig und enttäuscht, da die Werbung des Verlags mir hin ein falsches Buch suggeriert hat. Mit dem Buch hätte es vielleicht was werden können, wäre es heute geschrieben worden. So jedenfalls war es leider nichts für mich.Fazit:"Die andere Schwester" ist ein Buch, das ich absolut falsch eingeschätzt habe. Es ist eine Liebesgeschichte auf mehreren Ebenen: Liebe von Eltern zu Kindern, die Liebe zwischen Geschwistern und die Suche nach der einen ganz großen Liebe und was diese ausmacht. Das alles jedoch ohne großen Anspruch und Tiefgang. Ein Buch, das sich sicherlich eine große Fangemeinde erobern könnte, würde man es richtig bewerben.

    As one of Kristin Hannah’s first time readers this book blew me away. Between Sisters is a great book for a person who enjoys reading about romance, and likes a little suspense from time to time. While reading this book I could never put it down, I would always want to know what happened next. It was like watching a soap opera where at the end of the episode you would be dying to know what happens next. The way Kristin Hannah wrote the book with drama, love, and sorrow makes it different than every other romance novel. Even though at times you could predict what was going to happen you would still be interested in reading about it. The way she writes takes complete hold of the reader. “Meg immediately wished she hadn’t said that. It always hurt to remember their past together . For a lot of years, Claire had been more of a daughter to Meghann than a sister. Certainly, Meg had been more of a mother to Claire than Mama ever had.”The book focuses around two sisters named Meghann Dontess and Claire Cavenaugh who are trying to rekindle their bond after having little contact for the past 2 decades. Since Meghann left her sister Meghann has had trouble understanding that her happiness relies around her family, and most importantly her sister. Claire has always believed that her sister was more like a mother to her, and the occasion is reuniting the two and having them learn things about each other that they wouldn’t expect. “None of them could mention the future with out thinking, with out thinking, Will there be a christmas together? A Thanksgiving? A next summer?From time to time Kristin Hannah gives you a reminder to ponder on the possibilities of what could be instore for these characters. She builds suspense by leaving in the middle of a chapter and then wonders off to a new situation of a different character. This I believed was successful for Hannah. At times I would get upset about it but then I would realize that this gave me more of a reason to never put the book down. This was a great book by Kristin Hanna and I shall be buying myself more of her books.

    Differences between siblings couldn't be more extreme than they are in this overwrought feel-good novel by Hannah (Distant Shores), a tale about two estranged sisters. Meghann Dontess is a hotshot, well-to-do Seattle divorce lawyer in her 30s, entirely focused on her career. Her younger sister, Claire Cavenaugh, a single mom living in a backwater town in the Pacific Northwest, takes care of her five-year-old daughter and helps her father run his low-key lakeside resort. The half-sisters were raised by a neglectful mother, who finally abandoned them for Hollywood when she won a starring role in a science fiction series. Meghann was 16 and Claire was nine; Meghann had already essentially raised Claire herself, and after their mother left, she tracked down Claire's biological father. Sam Cavenaugh was thrilled to be reunited with Claire, but Meghann suddenly found herself motherless and sisterless all at once, and numbed the pain by pouring herself into school, college and career. Now she's horrified because Claire has recklessly fallen in love with a country singer whom she's about to marry. Their absentee mom suddenly steps in to get him a recording contract, but before there can be a happy mother-daughter reunion, Claire is diagnosed with a brain tumor. Only Meghann, with her worldly connections, can come to the rescue.I liked the book however I found it a bit predictable. I enjoyed the simple read and interesting characters.

    Fast read. Really enjoyed the 1st half of the book. After a while though the story line reminded me of the movie 'Beaches'. I liked that movie. The plot just got too unbelievable in the book though. When Claire had a brain tumor and her estranged, top lawyer sister ended up falling in love with a homeless looking man named Joe who turned out to be a top Seattle surgeon, who then realized that her brain tumor could be operated on, it was a bit corny. The surgery is successful and Claire lives and continues her happy life as a newlywed to an aspiring, hot country singer with her cute daughter Ali. Just a bit too much.I loved that the setting of the book was in Seattle, but the landmarks didn't correspond accurately to how they are in real life. That was a bit distracting and disappointing. The author is from the NW, so there's no excuse.

    I offered that book to her friend for her birthday, because I was drawn by the cover and thought she might relate to the characters. This cover is a beautiful cover. And my friend has two sisters and they are all very close. I thought she might like this book as it was about relationships sisters.I'm not sure what she thought about the book as I haven't seen her yet. But now after reading it I'm not sure it was a book for her.I have a sister myself, a step sister to be exact. A little bit like Meghann although I haven't been a mother for her, thank god, but I have been a big sister. I thought we were pretty close until the passing of our dad, but then we lost sight of each other. She drifted away. So in a way, I could relate to Meghann's character more than to Claire's one. And even if their story is a lot different than mine, I liked Meghann and could relate to her character. All the same, I think it was a good story, perhaps not what I was expecting in the first place, but still a good book. Not quite what I'm used to or what I usually like (romance and fantasy), but it was well written novel and I thought that all the characters were well developed, or sufficiently for their roles anyway. I loved Joe and Meghann in particular.I'm not sure I will read other books by that author as she is clearly not writing the kind of books I usually enjoy but I hope this will not stop anyone from trying her out, as she is a pretty good author in my opinion.

    I wasn't sure about this one to start with. But I am a Kristin Hannah fan, so I pushed on. Two sisters, so different! Meghann is definitely the B.. word. High powered divorce lawyer, herself a divorcee and a "cougar" in the worst sense of the word. Baby sister, Claire is the sweet one. Though a single never-been-married mother to 5 year old Alison Katherine ( Ali Kat), she lives in the same town she mostly grew up in out side of Seattle. She and her father run a resort. Her high school friends are all still around and close. Well, except one, Diana. The story has the mother nobody wants to claim, sisters who are estranged and struggling to find a common ground, a hometown boy turned disenfranchised loner. Add to the mix, a bunch of crazy girlfriends, a long lost Dad who took over raising a nine year old daughter, and a town full of people who loved them and some who definitely did not understand them.I ended up loving this story and giving it 5 stars. I finished with a hanky in one hand and the Kindle in the other. Maybe because I have only 1 sister and we both have endured some difficult times, but I was touched by this story of love and responsibility and what true friendship really means.
