Publisher's Summary

Molly and Robin Snow are sisters, and like all sisters they share a deep bond that sustains them through good times and bad. Their careers are flourishing: Molly is a horticulturist and Robin is a world-class runner and they are in the prime of their lives. So when Molly receives the news that Robin has suffered a massive heart attack, she couldn't be more shocked. At the hospital, the Snow family receives a grim prognosis: Robin may never regain consciousness.

As Robin's parents and siblings struggle to cope, the complex nature of their relationship is put to the ultimate test. Molly has always lived in Robin's shadow and her feelings for her have run the gamut, from love to resentment and back. The last time they spoke, they argued. But now there is so much more at stake. Molly's parents fold under the devastating circumstances, and her brother retreats into the cool reserve that is shattering his own family. It's up to Molly to make the tough decisions, and she soon makes discoveries that destroy some of her most cherished beliefs about the sister she thought she knew.

Once again New York Times best-selling author Barbara Delinsky brings us a masterful family portrait, filled with thought-provoking ideas about the nature of life itself, 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.

    "It was fine"
    Where does While My Sister Sleeps rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I listen to lots of audiobooks so this book isn't even near the top of the list but probably in the top half.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The family dynamics during a tragedy were interesting. Having lost a child myself, I found the book unrealistic. The reality of what this family was going through would have been much more horrific than is portrayed in this book. It was definitely fiction.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Narration was ok. Not great but not bad.
