Syd Walker, a Cherokee archaeologist for the Bureau of Indian Affairs, returns to Oklahoma when her sister Emma Lou goes missing. The twists and turns and power of family bonds in Vanessa Lillie’s Blood Sisters are exceptional, and her spotlight on the injustices surrounding cases of missing Native women is powerful.
Growing up, Syd knew violence in her surrounding community; her family was specifically touched by it when she and her sister Emma Lou and cousin Luna are attacked in their home and Luna is killed. Years later, as Syd tries to find justice for the missing, the events of that night revisit here when her sister goes missing. Syd returns to Oklahoma after a fifteen-year absence to search for Emma Lou and try to put the pieces back together of what really happened in 1993.
Fans of Taylor Sheridan will love this novel as will anyone interested in the kind of investigative work that goes into finding missing people. But, more than that, Blood Sisters is a book about family bonds and the lengths we will go to protect our own. I absolutely loved this book and have recommended it to everyone I know.
