The Real Sisters is a wonderful story written by Michelle Cummings. The author kick starts this novel with Sophie, one of the four sisters who gives out what she thought to be the first rule of fly-fishing, which is to pee before putting the waders on. Sophie also gives reason to why it’s necessary to pee before putting the waders on. In this novel, the author narrates the story and relationships of four sisters, who took fly-fishing as a means of catching fun and relieving themselves from stress.

This novel contains both the principles, and the information needed to be a fly fisher. I became more interested in reading this novel as the author narrates how eager and happy these four sisters are whenever there is a call for fishing. One of the things that amazed me is the style by which these sisters used in fishing, which they tag to be “catch and release”.

To these sisters, catching fish is their own way of catching fun and building their friendship. Having the right mindset and passion for fly-fishing is one of the greatest things we need to make it fun. Michelle tells us what fly-fishing is all about, some of which are: mending your line, cast to a specific spot, read the water, change your flight, and other things that readers will gain in this novel. I love Michelle’s style of narrating a story because he makes it easy for his reader to understand each scene without stress. Also, the way Michelle gives a detailed description of the places used in this novel is so amazing.

One of the funniest parts of this novel is when the four sisters fish Melody out of the river. Melody is a photographer who always took pictures of herself to sell it online. One day, as she was taking pictures of herself beside a river, she mistakenly fell into the water and was fish out by the four sisters. In this novel, I learn the importance and beauty of a genuine friendship. Anytime the four sisters which comprise Rose, Sophie, Amanda, and Veronica go to the cabin which was built by Rose and her husband, each of them will share what they are passing through, and they will give quality advice to each other.

There is nothing I dislike about this novel, it’s so interesting. Also, this novel has passed through adequate editing. The novel contains light erotic content which makes it not suitable for young readers. I rate The Real Sisters 4 out of 4 stars. I recommend this novel to every lover of fly-fishing and also to anyone who wants to know what genuine friendship is all about.

Thanks for giving such an insightful review. I'm intrigued to see how the author was able to weave so much about fly fishing into a story about four sisters and their relationship.

It was interesting that the author was able to veer away from fly fishing but still maintained the core of the tale. I think she is a gifted writer.
