From the Editor

My sisters and I are terribly close, but we have complicated relationships to say the least. We’re fiercely devoted yet perpetually insecure. We’re forever questioning ourselves, wondering if we did the right thing, gave the right advice, helped each other out as much as we could. We agonize over not just the big stuff, but also the trivial. Does Kristen think I cheaped out because I brought chips and salsa to her fancy dinner party? Did Shelly misread sarcasm in that text about letting my son watch an R-rated movie at her house? My husband thinks we’re ridiculously oversensitive. I disagree. I think the three of us realize on a very deep level that a relationship between sisters is unlike any other.

In This Bright Beauty, the connection between identical twins Franci and Lottie is even closer and more complicated. They lost their mother at a young age, and Lottie has long battled mental illness. After their mother’s death, Franci stepped in as caretaker, repeatedly rescuing Lottie. Each time she pulls Lottie from the depths, she questions whether she’s done enough to help. It’s not until Franci is completely exhausted and ready to give up that she’s faced with the most painful question yet—after their mother died, who was really protecting who? And who ultimately paid the price?

While This Bright Beauty is infused with hope, there are no easy answers here. And that’s what I especially love about the book. Emily Cavanagh shines a light on the joys and difficulties inherent in the sister bond and affirms what I’ve always suspected—because we share the same parents, history and DNA, no matter how complex and exasperating things can get, I will never have relationships like the ones I have with my sisters.

- Jodi Warshaw, Editor
