Fans of Alexandra Fuller should add this gorgeously written memoir about the bond of sisterhood and bad decisions to your to-be-read pile. While stunning in its simplicity, you will feel the crush of grief after her sister dies in a car accident and hope that her sister lives on in Kohler's writing.
