The Story Sisters/Alice Hoffman/325 pages/Four December Challenges Met

The Story sisters--Elizabeth, known as Elv, Meg, and Claire--are close in age and almost identical in looks. They are extraordinarily close. Elv has developed a new language for just the three of them and fills the youngest, Claire, with stories of another world where they truly belong. Elv and Meg grow apart and each tries to win Claire over.

This is a very strange and strangely hypnotic story. It's a story of betrayal, tragedy, forgiveness and redemption. I'm not sure I can say I liked it, but I definitely will remember it. 

There are multiple trips to France where much of the story takes place. There is a marriage and wedding. There is a pregnancy and baby born. Elv works with both horses and dogs during her times of incarceration.
