About this deal

She shares how their lives changed once living in Israel and included notes in the form of "Afterward" with family members. Sometimes the stars align and, by a zillion-to-one chance, you discover that dreams, every now and then, do come true. Heather Morris can do no wrong in my book and I look forward to reading more of her work in the future. As with most historical fiction set in this time period, it is difficult to read about the horrible treatment that Jews faced and the incredible resiliency of the survivors.

Historical Holocaust- ‘based-on-a- true-story’, novel was written from love, warmth, and compassion…. Cibi and Livi were extremely fortunate to find themselves with two different kapos who were sympathetic to them and got them easier jobs in the camp.Stories of survival in WWII and the Holocaust are heartbreaking and inspiring and Three Sisters is no different. With sections divided by years rather than perspective, each sister’s point-of-view is explored in most chapters, sometimes on the same page, resulting in the “head-hopping” problem. The book is an honest, powerful, at times hard hitting recollection of what the Meller family went through.

Having said all that, I do appreciate what Morris tried to do here, which was to relay the sisters’ courage and resilience in surviving the camps and rising above the tragedies they experienced to ultimately live full and flourishing lives. That said, the content of the books could not be more exceptional, and I’m grateful these stories have been told. These three sisters somehow survive and escape the death camps, moving across Europe, to Slovakia, and to Israel with astounding force and determination. Three Sisters is her third novel, and the final piece in the phenomenon that is the Tattooist of Auschwitz series.

I wish there was a further part to this book, as I feel the story is left without really ending but it is one of those stand alone books and unfortunately, I know there will be no follow up. Martin’s Press and NetGalley for the opportunity to read this powerful book in advance of its October 5, 2021 release date. The day before a dangerous operation, their father asked his three daughters, Cibi, Magda and Livia to make a promise that they will look after each other and stay together no matter what.
