Sarah Broadhurst's view...

A wonderful author whom I always look forward to so I picked this up with great alacrity and found it absorbing but not one of her best. It is the story of four sisters beginning before World War I and following their lives, loves, marriages, heartaches and disasters over several decades. Full of period detail and bags of plot, it should have hit the mark but although a lovely read, the author has written better so try her earlier books too.

Comparison: Michelle Paver, Penny Vincenzi, Santa Montefiore.
Similar this month: Sara MacDonald, Annabel Dilke.

If you like Judith Lennox you might also like to read books by Penny Vincenzi, Santa Montefiore and Lesley Lokko.

Synopsis

All My Sisters by Judith Lennox

Another wonderfully compelling novel from the highly praised author of MIDDLEMERE In the tumultuous years before the First World War, sisters Iris, Marianne, Eva and Clemency, born and raised in industrial Sheffield, seek to follow their dreams. When twenty-year-old Marianne meets handsome, sophisticated Arthur Leighton at a local provincial ball, she knows that she has found the love of her life. Years pass, and Iris, her ambition of a grand marriage dashed, becomes a nurse in a London hospital, surprising herself, and her family, at her ability to deal with the injuries and needs of her patients. When Eva falls in love with the Bohemian, Gabriel Bellamy, her hopes of becoming an artist falter, for though he admires her work, he expects attention in return for his tutelage. Caring for her invalid mother, Clemency remains tied to the family home, stifling her dreams of a life elsewhere. And Marianne's desire for happiness turns to nightmare when she finds herself trapped in an isolated outpost of the Empire with a cruel and dangerous man. Only her love for her son and her memory of her sisters, thousands of miles away in England, give her the strength to survive.
