While My Sister Sleeps

While My Sister Sleeps While My Sister Sleeps by Barbara Delinsky

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


This book was essentially about love.  A love for your family, a love for who who we are destined to become, and a love for what we are.  The storyline of the book is about a motivated and driven woman named Robin who suffers from a massive heart attack while running and falls into a deep coma.  All the while, it leaves her family to discover who Robin really is and what she kept from the rest of her family.  The book focuses around Robin's sister Molly who has always lived in her sister's shadow.  Throughout this horrific ordeal, Molly learns who her sister really is and discovers who she is destined to become.  We grow up being who our parents mold us to be.  At what point do we break away from what they want into what we want?  Will they still love us?  Will they let us be "us?"  This is a book about family, love, being our true self, and fate.
