“Sisterhood had me hooked from the very beginning. Moore entwines a complex mix of interesting characters and stories into historical and mythical ideas of witchcraft and magic, adding an underlining pinch of feminism! Each sub story takes you on a journey, where the characters and dialogue are relatable and engaging.
Each character has a story that touches on serious issues of abuse, misogyny and persecution. This is not presented in a pitiful way, with the usual weak maiden led on a journey of disaster. Instead Moore presents strong, modern day females uniting to challenge the oppression inflicted on them. This is a story of female empowerment. It's empathetic and challenges ideals of female expectation.
Ultimately, this is a story of solidarity – a sisterhood that stretches through many generations with a climax that is both satisfying and creative.”
“A mystical tale of myth and misogyny, comeuppance and revenge. Thought-provoking and eye-opening. A 'must read' for both men and women.
I'm not a 'burn your bra' feminist, however, Ms. Moore caught my attention within the first few pages and I found it difficult to put down.
Definitely a life lesson for all, but also a gripping and fascinating read.”
“A black, bag in a second-hand shop, pulsating with anticipation.
An old Italian Woman, Aella, who came from Aquileia in Italy.
Six young women are drawn to each other through Aella, with no prior knowledge of each other.
What is the common bond they have?
A strong sense of synchronicity wafts through the relationships that are carefully crafted by Carol Ann Moore, in Sisterhood. She has gifted us with rich character portrayals of each woman, Irin, Caro, Lillian, Evie and identical twins Juno and Lana. Each has a deeply disturbing story in their own right.
Carol has woven a mystery through the plot that brings them together and makes this book hard to put down. It will leave you begging for the end and then wanting more. Well researched,
Sisterhood begs for a prequel!”
