Book Review - True Colors by Kristin Hannah

Sisterhood triumphs over sibling rivalries in this artfully turned Kristin Hannah novel. Winona, Aurora, and Vivi Ann grew up together in a small Washington State suburban town. Bonding together closer after their mother's early death, they develop differently: Winona, overweight and insecure, becomes a resourceful lawyer; Aurora is the middle sister peacemaker; and youthful, attractive Vivi Ann attracts men easily, not always to her advantage. True Colors will strike chords in anybody who is a sister or has a sister; it could be Kristin Hannah's breakthrough novel.

I went and read some other reviews for True Colors and many didn't really like it. Just like I have wrote with many of Kristin Hannah's book I had a hard time getting started but once I was a couple of chapters in I was hooked. Any book that can make me cry is a good book. This one did. I'll give this book 3 1/2 starts out of 5.

I enjoyed that one too. You can really see the evolution of her writing. Wish I could find a chronologic list of her books. Her latest are much better than some of the early ones.

I don't think we have very many Kristin Hannah books left to read. I really like her latest books better then her first ones. She has really developed as a writer.
