This one was waiting for me when I got home from work tonight. I will read and get it moving as quickly as I can, though I do have three in the pipeline, so may be a little longer than usual.

Wow, what a terrific tale - ups, downs, relationships in all shapes and sizes, joy, love, tears...... I just loved it, so thank you, thank you for introducing me to this author. I half guessed the payoff, but that did not in any way spoil the story, which became more compelling with every chapter. What would you like me to do with it next? Is it coming back to CITIBELLE?

Being posted to Okyrhoe today - happy reading. (This missing list of names was discovered stuck between two pages at the end of the book!)

Arrived today in my p.o. box. Thanks CITIBELLE for including me in the bookring, and Midlifecrisis for posting the book to me!

Not counting the ones I've organized, this is the 98th ring/ray I am participating in! When I joined BC I never imagined I'd get this hooked ;-o

Initially I thought Sister of my Heart was going to turn out a disappointment; the first chapter reminded me of everything I disliked in The Mistress of Spices - the fairy tale references & the saccharine magical realism.
What saved it for me is the construct of alternating the chapters between Sudha's & Anju's narratives. Interwoven in the linear account of the story, there develops the silent subplot of what each girl desires to tell the other but is unable to vocalize. This unspoken narrative made the story more immediate and authentic, with the dramatic tension centered on the fluctuating relationship between the two girls, rather than on their individual struggles with social expectations & destiny.

Book has arrived safe and sound, thank you Okyrhoe for the lovely postcard, bookmarks and the beautiful stamps too. Looking forward to starting this one, I do have one more to finish but will be as quick as possible.

I am a little worried about this book, I have posted it, about a month ago but cannot contact kiri as I have not heard whether the book has arrived. I enjoyed this book so much.

TBR. It is here! Thank you!

29 March 2009 -- This took me a little longer to get into but when I did I enjoyed it just as much as the others. This is truly a wonderful story and I liked the resolution!

I will be sending this back with Arranged Marriage and Mistress of the Spices to Citibelle thus finishing both rings unless otherwise directed.

by the way Citibelle - I think the Bookring Cards you put in each book are wonderful! =)

Ok to wild release per Citibelle.
