Journal Entry 1 by jeniwren from Greigs Flat, New South Wales Australia on Thursday, November 20, 2014
Sisters of Mercy by Caroline Overington is the haunting story of two sisters - one has vanished, the other is behind bars...

Snow Delaney was born a generation and a world away from her sister, Agnes.

Until recently, neither even knew of the other's existence. They came together only for the reading of their father's will - when Snow discovered, to her horror, that she was not the sole beneficiary of his large estate.

Now Snow is in prison and Agnes is missing, disappeared in the eerie red dust that blanketed Sydney from dawn on September 23, 2009.

With no other family left, Snow turns to crime journalist Jack Fawcett, protesting her innocence in a series of defiant letters from prison. Has she been unfairly judged? Or will Jack's own research reveal a story even more shocking than the one Snow wants to tell?

With Sisters of Mercy Caroline Overington once again proves she is one of the most exciting new novelists of recent years.

This is the first book by this author that I have read and it was a compelling read.

I enjoyed the little details in the book that accurately described locations and events in Sydney and Melbourne really brought the story to life and made it seem like a real unsolved Australian mystery rather than a work of fiction.

I'm not sure what to say about this book. I found the beginning exceedingly slow, then the pace picked up about halfway through. The treatment of the disabled children came as no surprise and the ending was rather disappointing, so although the story was ok, I don't think it was one of this author's best books.

Reminded me of my stay in Sydney when I visited my daughter who worked as a trainee in a tower on Saint Martin Street and was living in Manly. What a dream it was!
I completely fell for Snow who for me is an ingenue and a real victim.
Sadly the system works the same way everywhere in the modern world. A lot of good wishes facing the reality of money and administration.
I don't like open endings so I'm disappointed.
