    Reeling from a broken engagement, adopted 19-year-old Menina Walker flees to Spain to bury her misery by writing her overdue college thesis - and soon finds herself on an unexpected journey into the past. The subject of her study is Tristan Mendoza, an obscure 16th-century artist whose signature includes a tiny swallow - the same swallow depicted on a medal that is Menina’s only link to her birth family. Hoping her research will reveal the swallow’s significance and clue her in to her origins, Menina discovers the ancient chronicle of a Spanish convent containing the stories of five orphaned girls hidden from the Spanish Inquisition.

    Story
    Would you listen to The Sisterhood again? Why?

    Yes, I would probably listen to it again. There was enough complexity to the story to make it worth hearing another time. Though I probably wouldn't take the time to retread it, I can see myself listening to it while on my morning walk.


    What does Laura Roppe bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Laura Roppe changed voices with each character. It brought a lot to the experience. Also, if I had only been reading the book, I wouldn't have gotten the Spanish words correct.


    Any additional comments?

    This was my first experience with audio books. I didn't know how I would feel about them. I really enjoyed the format, especially while I was walking. I also enjoyed being able to switch back and forth between reading and listening to the book, two very different experiences.
