Book Description

April 2 2010

Like a princess in a fairytale, Grace Hamilton has been showered with blessings: professional success, a happy marriage, and she even lives in a beautiful castle. But the only thing she really wants - her heart’s desire - is the one thing she can never have.

Her sister, the beautiful Susannah, has made a mess of her life. Like a reverse Midas, everything she touches turns to shit. But the Fate puts Grace’s future in Susannah’s hands, changing the balance of power between the sisters forever.

Product Description

Review

“[A] brilliantly enjoyable novel about rival sisters and surrogate parenting—quite unlike anything we’ve read in ages. Put it on your bedside table right now!”—Heat (U.K.)

“With twists that will put your jaw in the dropped position, [this is] edgy, funny, unpredictable . . . for women who like it real .”—Daily Record (U.K.)

"Stimson weaves a suspenseful tale of unusual emotional complexity and honesty...The novel's bittersweet ending and its suggestion that all that ends well will not necessarily remain well further complements this intense and heartfelt tale of love and hatred between siblings."--Booklist
--This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

4.0 out of 5 stars interesting look at two sisters July 1 2011
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Thanks to her sister Susannah's destructive behavior, Grace feared pregnancy. However, in her thirties, she suddenly hears her biological clock ticking away. She and her husband Tom decide to have a child. Fourteen months later and a cost of a ton of pounds, Dr. Janus informs Grace she can never conceive. Because of Tom's heart defect, adoption is also out. Strategic thinker Grace plots her next child campaign even as she almost abducts a baby.

In America, Homeland Security informs Susannah that she will be sent back to Great Britain. Between ex husbands, alcohol, drugs, and sex with anyone even when she was married, Susannah knows arguing is futile. When their mother Catherine suffers a debilitating stroke that leaves her comatose, Grace demands Susannah come home, which she does. In Oxfordshire, Susannah becomes a surrogate mother for her sister, but though pregnant she still drinks and sleeps with everyone. As she tries clean up, Grace and Tom head to divorce court with custody becoming an issue.

This is an interesting look at two sisters whose lifestyles are dramatically different yet in many ways the same as each tends towards obsessiveness bordering on destructive compulsion. Numerous medical crises become a gimmicky conflict resolution technique that severely detracts from the family drama as does a bit of whimsy involving their mom. Still fans will wonder how much is too much sharing between sisters.

I truly enjoyed reading the book: "What's Yours is Mine: A novel about Sisters Who Share Just a little
too Much."
The book was an easy to read, fun and distracting book. It was a rather powerful book in my opinion w/
many emotions and twists and turns.
