Racine by Alison Clarke (The Sisterhood, #2)

Racine: The Sisterhood StoriesA young girl discovers the magic and freedom of finding who she is and how important she is to the worlds around her, both seen and unseen. Racine finds solace and escape in the Library of Congress, proof that no matter who badly life treated her or how sad she felt, it was through the doors of a vast library where she learned the power of words, of stories and how those stories would tell her of her own personal strengths and goodness.

As Racine enters into a world of dragons, angels, magic, her understanding of the part she plays in life and the power of good over evil when hearts are opened and we learn to embrace the differences we all have as part of the Story of Life. Watch Racine grow, learn and gain inner strength and peace as Alison Clarke takes us all on a dream-like journey in RACINE.

Fall into this uniquely drawn tale and float alongside Racine as she encounters different times and places, each a rich piece of the puzzle that is the goodness of life. NOT an action-packed read if you are looking for great battles, but more of an almost ethereal read where the action comes through knowledge and learning. Beautiful storytelling, almost dreamlike, for a young girl in need of an identity, pride in her heritage and a little kindness.

I received an ARC edition from Alison Clarke in exchange for my honest review.
