Pressestimmen

“Delinsky is a first-rate storyteller who creates believable, sympathetic characters who seem as familiar as your neighbors.” —The Boston Globe

“Delinsky is an engaging writer who knows how to interweave several stories about complex relationships and keeps her books interesting to the end.” —Newark Star-Ledger

“Delinsky treads the same domestic themes as fellow best-seller Jodi Picoult.” —Entertainment Weekly

“Delinsky may be as adept at chronicling contemporary life in New England as any writer this side of John Updike.” —Times Union (Albany)

“Delinsky delves deeper into the human heart and spirit with each new novel.” —Cincinnati Inquirer

“Delinsky uses nuance and detail to draw realistic characters and ensure that emotion is genuine.” —The Providence Journal

“Delinsky is out there with the Anita Shreves and Elizabeth Bergs, perpetually bestselling authors who wrestle with bigger themes.” —Lexington Herald-Ledger

“Fast-paced entertainment… In her new family drama, Delinsky examines the roles people unconsciously play in families and how a mother's single-minded passion to have one child fulfill a dream can create resentment in the other siblings.” —USA Today

"Molly Snow isn't worried when she gets a phone call notifying her that her sister is in the ER. A world-class runner, 32-year-old Robin Snow has had many injuries, and Molly arrives at the hospital expecting nothing worse than an ankle sprain. But Robin has had a massive heart attack while running, and the prognosis is not good. As the devastated Snow family holds a bedside vigil, they learn things about Robin that alternately surprise and distress them. Graced by characters readers will come to care about, this is that rare book that deserves to have the phrase "impossible to put down" attached to it. Delinsky (The Secret Between Us) does a wonderful and realistic job portraying family dynamics; the relationship between Molly and Robin, in particular, is spot-on. This touching and heartbreaking novel is highly recommended for public libraries where women's fiction is popular. Readers of Kristin Hannah and Patricia Gaffney will enjoy it." —Library Journal

"
The Snow family faces a devastating crisis when oldest daughter Robin, a runner training for the Olympics, suffers a catastrophic heart attack. Molly, Robin's younger sister, gets the call from the hospital and is immediately guilt-stricken: she was supposed to accompany Robin on her run. When Molly, her older brother, Chris, and her parents, Kathryn and Charlie, gather at the hospital, they learn that Robin is in a coma and might be brain dead. While Kathryn refuses to believe the worst, Molly reaches out to David, the handsome teacher who found Robin after the heart attack, and tries to determine whether Nick, a charming reporter who once dated Robin briefly, is truly concerned about the family or just pursuing a big story. The Snows try to come to grips with the reality that Robin might never wake up, and Molly, attempting to discern what Robin would want, stumbles across Robin's diaries and learns some startling family secrets... Delinsky's popularity should ensure demand for this engaging exploration of every family's worst nightmare." —Booklist

Kurzbeschreibung

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

Once again New York Times bestselling author Barbara Delinsky brings us a masterful family portrait, filled with thought-provoking insights into how emotions affect the decisions we make and how letting go can be the hardest thing to do and the greatest expression of love all at the same time.

Molly and Robin Snow are sisters in the prime of life. So when Molly receives the news that Robin has suffered a massive heart attack, the news couldn't be more shocking. At the hospital, the Snow family receives a grim prognosis: Robin may never regain consciousness. Feelings of guilt and jealousy flare up as Robin's family struggles to cope. It's up to Molly to make the tough decisions, and she soon makes discoveries that shatter some of her most cherished beliefs about the sister she thought she knew.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Families are tough 6. Januar 2011
Von dcbooklover - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This was a solid book from Barbara Delinsky, focusing on the difficulties of family relationships. The story is framed by a medical emergency involving 30-year-old Robin, who has a massive heart attack while training for a marathon. When her family rallies around her in the hospital, the inevitable issues arise about how families deal with crises, how to ascertain what someone else would want in terms of medical care if they have not left instructions, and the like. But in addition, the book raises issues of whether parents (and children) can ever see each other as anything other than parents (and children) rather than as independent human beings, whether you can ever really know another person even if they are family, and other classic family issues.
5.0 von 5 Sternen While my Sister Sleeps 3. Juli 2014
Von CINDY S OLSON - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I really liked this book. Family is everything and it really showed in this book. Also it goes to shows that you can't assume or presume that what your parents think about there individual children. Parents have a special bond with each child and each child has its own special meaning. While my sister sleeps really shows you how the children each thought there Mother has a different perception. This is a real good book

I like Barbara Delinsky as an author and already own several of her books, but while my sister sleeps was okay it didn't have the same Delinsky feel about it as her other books do. I have read it twice but wont bother reading it again, where as the Summer I dared is something I read frequently.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Tragic family struggle 1. Dezember 2015
Von Mackenzie Barrett - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Makes you realize how important it is to plan for all situations no matter how young or old you are. I read this for a church book club and was surprised at what a lively discussion we had.

This is about how the death of one family member deeply affects the rest of the family, for the better.
