Thicker than Blood is a story of two sisters, Christy and May Williams, who have drifted apart after the tragic death of their parents. Two young women, two very different choices of lifestyles.
Both young women are heartbroken over the loss of their relationship for different reasons. May, more so, when she finds out their lawyer, Harvey Kurtz, knows Christy’s whereabouts but won’t disclose it to her.
After the funeral of their Aunt Edna, and subsequent life-changing (lost her job), life-threatening (being stalked) circumstances, Christy finds herself in a difficult situation, and determines to go see May. Through heart-wrenching events (lost in a blizzard), they find what they’ve both been looking for. A book of hope for torn apart families.
The ending definitely leaves room for a sequel. Hopefully so!

I received this book free from Ms. Darlington through Tyndale for my honest review of her book. My thanks for this opportunity to share a good Christian book for you to consider reading.
