Review: Swimming at Night by Lucy Clarke

buy the book from The Book Depository, free delivery

Conservative Katie receives news that her free-spirited sister Mia was found dead in Bali. The police say it was a suicide. Refusing to accept this, Katie takes Mia's travel journal and retraces the around-the-world trip that lead her sister to Bali and the bottom of a cliff to find out what really happened.

I can't say enough good things about this book. Lucy Clarke captures the bond and tension of sisters perfectly, writing their love and disagreements with a deft hand. She at once made me long for a sister and thankful that I have a brother instead. Descriptive, heart-wrenching and touching, Swimming at Night is a must-read for anyone fascinated with human emotion, family bonds and the complex nature of relationships.
