Her Sister's Shadow by Katharine Britton

This is a good story. I especially liked the chapters set in 1966 to 1969. It rings true to the time to me. I have a little difficulty with the chapters set in 2009. Bea seems to be older than she is and Lilli seems younger than she is. However, it's not unrealistic that that is really how they are. It's just that the people I know in their 70s seem younger and more alert than Bea and those around 50 seem more mature. Although this annoyed me, within the context of the story, it explains a lot. It's the only thing that makes sense with her reaction to Randall. Considering Lilli's age ind 1969and the short time she knew him, it seems unlikely that she would have continued to feel in 2009 as she did in 1969 unless she were immature.  

Overall, the story is not unpleasant, and despite the little annoyances about Bea's and Lilli's ages I really did enjoy reading this.
