The Canterbury Sisters

Cover: 'The Canterbury Sisters'

Staff Review: "The Canterbury Sisters" by Kim Wright


After the death of her mother, Che receives a letter from her longtime boyfriend saying he's leaving her for another woman. In the same batch of mail, Che is notified of her mother's last wishes including the request that Che complete their unfulfilled plans of hiking the Canterbury trail in England. Not wanting to confront the breakup and exhausted from work, Che jumps on a plane to achieve her mother's last request. During the hike Che is taken in by a group of women doing the same hike and they all exchange stories, wisdom, and lessons of healing. A great novel of discovery, healing, and bonding, this was a wonderful read.
