The True and Outstanding Adventures of the Hunt Sisters


9780316735025Olivia Hunt was ready to leave her world and all of her failures behind.  In the middle of constructing her fourth and artfully crafted suicide note, she received a call from her father that had taken a turn in her miserable existence.  Olivia’s sister has cancer.

In this beautifully and eloquently written novel, Elisabeth Robinson gives us a glimpse into the lives of the Hunt sisters.  Reading the letters that Olivia writes to her family, friends, and business associates is so private, yet compelling.  We discover that Olivia fights to produce her first successful film, reminisces about her failed romance, and endures through her sister’s chemotherapy.  She takes us to a world where others dream of and then to a reality many face today.

The True and Outstanding Adventures of the Hunt Sisters made one feel the character’s emotions as it jumps right off of the page.  It is a must read and should be shared with family and friends.
