'Once Upon a Story' is a weekly feature in which we go back in time and focus on a specific novel that was released in the same month we're in right now (in this case May), but a few years back! It can be a women's fiction classic from the 1990's or perhaps a great chick lit read from 2011. I thought it would be nice to not just focus on recent releases, but also take the chance to jump back in time once a week and look back at wonderful reads that have been released over the years!
Julie used to be the easy-going one. But now she is a mother of four boys under five, her marriage is under strain and she is struggling to keep sane. She needs support, but her sisters don’t understand. After all, their lives are perfect.
Lawyer Louise has always been top of her game, with little time for family and even less for romance. But with a drunken mistake threatening everything she’s worked for, she may have to accept that she needs help to keep going.
Gorgeous Sophie got everything she ever wanted: a loving husband, a beautiful, well-behaved daughter and a designer lifestyle. Her sisters consider her spoiled and shallow but she doesn’t care – that’s until her life is turned upside down and she realizes they may be right. Not taht she’s going to let them know the trouble she’s in.
The Devlin sisters think they have little in common. They might just be in for some big surprises.
Since I started book blogging I've been lucky enough to have been introduced to some incredible authors, including Sinead Moriarty. I read her novel 'This Child of Mine' last year and really loved it. I look forward to checking out some of Sinead's other novels, which is why I decided to jump back to August 2011 this week to focus on one of her earlier releases, 'Me and my Sisters'. The book tells the story of the Devlin sisters: Julie, Louise and Sophie. I think the blurb promises a great read, but what is also exciting is the fact that Sinead actually wrote a sequel to this particular book which was released on the 31st of July 2014 and is titled 'The Secrets Sisters Keep.' I can't wait to pick up both books and definitely recommend Sinead's work to anyone who is looking for a good women's fiction read!
