Review:  This book was so captivating from the get go.  The story is written in letter form from Beatrice to Tess.  Beatrice tells her sister all about her investigation to find out what happens to Tess but also tells her about what is going on in her life during that time.  She also shares her emotions, most specifically her grief.  We really get to feel what Beatrice is feeling and I have to admit that I did shed some tears.  We also feel the deep love between the sisters not only when they were grown up but also when they were younger, as Beatrice would have flashbacks to their childhood, especially when talking about the medical questions that arise in the book.  I was quite caught off guard by the end.  I did NOT expect it and I also feel like the book wasn't quite over.  I wanted another chapter!  But all in all I really enjoyed reading this book.

Rating: 4 1/2 stars
