While My Sister Sleeps Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Molly and Robin Snow are sisters, and like all sisters they share a deep bond that sustains them through good times and bad. Their careers are flourishing-Molly is a horticulturist and Robin is a world-class runner-and they are in the prime of their lives. So when Molly receives the news that Robin has suffered a massive heart attack, she couldnt be more shocked. At the hospital, the Snow family receives a grim prognosis: Robin may never regain consciousness.

As Robins parents and siblings struggle to cope, the complex nature of their relationship is put to the ultimate test. Molly has always lived in Robins shadow, and her feelings for her have run the gamut, from love to resentment and back. The last time they spoke, they argued. But now there is so much more at stake. Mollys parents fold under the devastating circumstances, and her brother retreats into the cool reserve that is shattering his own family. Its up to Molly to make the tough decisions, and she soon makes discoveries that destroy some of her most cherished beliefs about the sister she thought she knew.

From the Compact Disc edition.
