Read The Sisters of Glass Ferry Online Free - OKRA PICK, Fall 2017
Spanning several decades and written in an authentic voice both lyrical and wise, The Sisters of Glass Ferry is a haunting novel about small-town Southern secrets, loss and atonement, and the unbreakable bond between siblings.
Glass Ferry, Kentucky, is bourbon country. Whiskey has been a way of life for generations, enabling families to provide and survive even in the darkest times. Flannery Butler's daddy, Beauregard "Honey Bee" Butler, was known for making some of the best whiskey in the state, aged in barrels he'd take by boat up and down the Kentucky River until the rocking waters turned the spirits smooth and golden. Flannery is the only person Honey Bee ever entrusted with his recipes before he passed on, swearing her to secrecy as he did so.
But Flannery is harboring other secrets too, about her twin sister Patsy, older by eight minutes and pretty in a way Flannery knows she'll never be.
Then comes the prom night when Patsy--wearing a yellow chiffon dress and the family pearls--disappears along with her date. Every succeeding year on the twins' birthday, Flannery's mother bakes a strawberry cake, convinced that this is the day Patsy will finally come home. But it will be two tumultuous decades until the muddy river yields a clue about what happened that night, compelling Flannery to confront the truth about her sleepy town, her family's past, and the choices she and those closest to her have made in the name of love and retribution . . .

3.5 What I thought I was getting: I felt like reading a good, old Southern novel, maybe gothic in tone, full of Southern charm and mannerisms. I have pretty much quit reading book summaries as they so often spoil the read, give too much away. So...I saw the blurb, sisters, secrets, family, Kentuc...

The sisters of Glass Ferry by Kim Michele Richardson was a story of rape, domestic abuse and family secrets. The story it told in two different time lines by twin sisters. The story had a few twist and turns and had some surprises. I would like to thank NetGalley and Kensington Books for my e-cop...

I received an advance copy of this wonderful story and am pleased to review it here. From the opening chapter, "Sisters" grabs and does not let go until long after the reader closes the back cover.
Twin sisters, born eight minutes apart, live as might any other two girls competing for their paren...

Thanks to the publisher for this review copy!
If you love dark Southern intrigue, this one may be for you. I enjoyed it for the most part, but it did feel like there were about 5 extraneous story lines and some overdramatic moments that could have been avoided.
