By Sydney James
I just finished reading “Rag Doll Girls” by Sydney Jones. I received a free copy of this book from Book Sirens in exchange for an honest review.
This book tells the story of a little girl (Lisa) who is haunted by a tragic event that happened to her when she was a little girl. She has since moved to New York where she self-medicates with food. When her grandmother dies, she is guilted into returning to Sweden for the funeral and with her sister, Astrid, returning to the cabin where the tragic event occured.
What follows is a journey to self-acceptance and more importantly self-forgiveness. Lisa begins the story as not very likeable, but I love reading about her journey. It is real and tragic and sad and honest.
The author did a great job of setting up the story and weaving together the past and the present. It was well written and easy to read follow.
I enjoyed the sub-plots in the story and especially the way her relationship with her niece and nephew grew.
The ending made my heart smile and gave me the sense that all is right with the world. There is a little bit of everything in this story for lovers of psychological thriller, but especially the complex and confusing relationship between the two sisters, which was honestly, for me anyways, the best part of this book. Congratulations to the author.
Happy Reading Everyone!
