Sunflower Sisters Will Leave You Gasping....Outloud!

Sunflower Sisters

By: Martha Hall Kelly

My husband leaned over and asked what is wrong? I told him it was the book I was reading! This book!

This book is part of a series. However, each book is a stand-alone and can be read without knowledge of the previous stories. The Sunflower Sisters continues the saga of following a family of historically significant women and more specifically Georgeanna Woolsey. Like her other books, this novel traces the lives of three women, and weaves their storylines together in a captivating and intriguing tale. The setting of this book is during the American Civil War. It follows the storyline of Georgeanna Woolsey a New York woman from a large wealthy family, an enslaved woman from Maryland named Jemma, and Jemma's emotionally flawed owner, Anne-May. The story leads you from the battlefields of the war to the tobacco plantations of Maryland. It involves spies and nurses working on the battlefields and the devastating situations that arose in both these areas. Each breathtaking chapter of the book rotates between these remarkable women. Martha Hall Kelly has created a book, where each chapter leaves you hanging and will have you gasping out loud! I love reading Martha Hall Kelly’s books because they are about remarkable women, they are historical fiction and they are based on real people.

I rate it 4 1/2 stars out of 5.
