What amazing sisters! (Parmar)

A New York Times Notable Book • An Entertainment Weekly “Must List” Pick • “Prepare to be dazzled.”—Paula McLain • “Quite simply astonishing.”—Sarah Blake
Vanessa and Her Sister: A Novel by [Parmar, Priya]I noticed that this excellent historical novel is currently only $2.99 for the digital edition.  This is the author’s wonderful first novel.  It is about Virginia Woolf and her sister Vanessa Bell.  There are insights into the girls’ early family life and then of course, the reader spends time with Leonard Woolf, Roger Bell, Lytton Strachey, Duncan Grant who are all members of the Bloomsbury group.  This is an easy and absorbing way to learn more about Virginia Woolf, her mental illness and those who cared about and for her. It raises interesting issues about sibling bonds and responsibilities.
