    When we look back at our ancestors, we often look at their belongings but do we really consider their thoughts, wishes and emotions. Theresa Kishkan has those of us who read her book doing that in Sisters of Grass.my complete review

    Canadian author, local interest. Parallel stories of two women...set in the Nicola Valley ranchland in late 1800's. A little draggy, but overall a good story.
