She’s-she’s in her room. She- Doesn’t she got the baby yet? asked Berta impatiently. No. No-not yet. Soon. The doctor says soon-now. The answer was not what Berta wished to hear.

There were moments when she wished she were an only child, that her mother had never blessed her with a baby sister. Not a sister-like Glenna.

"She's lovely! Look at those curls. Those blue eyes. She's just beautiful!"

Berta was used to those comments. Whenever ladies came to the house or met her mother on the streets, everyone was always exclaiming over her little sister Glenna.

Somewhere along the way, Berta gradually came to the conclusion that whatever Glenna was, she would not be. Whatever Glenna did, she would not do. Whatever Glenna liked, she would not like. She would be the opposite.

And as the two girls grow up, that determination shapes their relationship. Glenna is sparkling, vivacious, outgoing, and adored. Berta is serious, dependable, prim, and always feels plain and ordinary especially when she compares herself to her sister.

But the day will come when Berta must look into her heart and discover what truly makes the distance between them.


Nothing personal
The book drag along at first. But by the end you see what the author was getting at. Life can drag if you continue on that path. Sometimes when you look for the bad that is what you will only see. Thankfully God reaches out to help us see the blinders we ware. His love is there. We need to put away childish selfish thinking and open our eyes before it is too late like miss Phillips in the book. Love is around us. Life is full of hurt and disappointments but it is our choice to see half full cup or half empty cup of life. God loves you.

I read this book many years ago and wanted to read it again. This book reminded me how we can suffer low self-esteem while comparing ourselves with someone who seems to have it together. Not knowing that the person who seems to have it all together is wearing a mask and have issues, also. God is the One who we can turn to with our feelings of not being good enough. He will tell us how He loves us.

Berta is a negative person. I do not like negative people, don't want to read about them. Was not hopeful that she would get it and change her ways, because she had many opportunities and did not.SO MUCH FOR MY REVIEW and MY RETURN OF THE BOOK.It was still on my i-pad last night, my usual reading time. THREE PAGES INTO IT, the book took the turn I was anticipating. WONDERFUL now! God is celebrated in the book by the once- sour-puss main character! Glad that my return of the book failed!

I enjoy Janette Oke's books. I like her writing style and the truth about hope in the midst of pain- in this case just because we see things one way as a child doesn't mean that it's reality. We can have new understanding as adults and be able to live a freedom from our past pain.

Most everyone carries some baggage from childhood; after all, even the best of parents make mistakes, miss opportunities to reaffirm their child's worth. It's easy to misinterpret the words and actions of others and form our self-image around those opinions. It's story a lot of us can relate to. Well done!

This is a very good story and the characters are easy to relate too. The message throughout is God guiding and directing our paths and His great love to us personally. Great author I recommend her and this book. Thank you for keeping your novels Christ centered and free from sexual content.

Sorry to Jeanette for a bad review. I have loved all of her books and tried very hard to love this one. This one had some good concepts but went on and on with the depressing ones. I would not recommend it to anyone. So hard to get through. The last 3 or 4 pages were good.
I really enjoyed this book. If I had to put it down, I wanted to hurry and return to reading it. I appreciated the ending when there is a clear meaning of the title. I'd recommend this book to my friends.
