This is another book I got to enjoy early, The Wilderwomen is a contemporary, supernatural mystery about sisterhood, family, love, letting go and never giving up. It releases November 15 and honestly, it feels like a November book. I am not sure what that means but read it and get back to me. It just makes sense.
This is the story of 2 sisters, Zadie and Finn who reunite after a couple of years of distance to go on a beach trip together. However, they actually end up on a cross country search for their mother, Nora, who wandered out of their home years earlier and never returned. Oh... and they have special abilities. Zadie can see the future and Finn can feel and experience people's memories.
The magical touches throughout the book really made the story that much more inviting. I love a good story about the bonds of sisterhood but you add magic to it and I am over the moon. Both of these girls were incredibly lovable and the way they interacted with each other felt so honest and real. I had to see their story through to the end and I recommend you do too!
