Product Description

Sara Louise Bradshaw knows that she should be proud of her beautiful twin Caroline. But how can she? Ever since they were born, Caroline has done nothing but take from Louise: their parents' love, Louise's hopes for an education, even her best--and only--friend. For once in her life, Louise wants to experience the kind of happiness that has always come so easily to Caroline. But in order to do that, she must first figure out who she is. And then she must make a place for herself outside her sister's shadow. Recommended for ages 9 and up. The 1981 Newbery Medal winner.

Publisher's Description

I was proud of my sister, but that year, something began to rankle beneath the pride.

Louise has had enough of her twin sister. Caroline is beautiful. Caroline is talented. Caroline is better. Growing up on the small island of Rass in Chesapeake Bay, Caroline seems to do nothing but take from Louise: their parents' love, Louise's chances for an education, her dreams for the future. They have spent their lives entwined -- sleeping in the same room, eating at the same table, learning in the same classroom -- and yet somehow nothing can bring them together. Louise's only hope lies in seeking a place for herself beyond the stretch of Rass's shores and her sister's shadow. What will it take for her to break free?

The remarkable Newbery-winning classic about a painful sibling rivalry, and one sister’s struggle to make her own way.

    This review was written for Jacob Have I Loved.
    This book was a disappointment to me. The description on the back of the book seemed a valuable one. One that would teach you to be confident in your own abilities, than always comparing yourself to others. That was exactly what, the main character, Sara Louise, did. She constantly compared and degraded herself to her beautiful and seemingly talented sister, Caroline. The self-pity drove a dark cloud throughout the book. Her grandmother played favorites between the sisters, completely insulting Sara Louise by saying, "Jacob have I loved and Esau have I hated." Her best friend deserts her and marries her sister. And finally, she is forced (by her own will) to leave the island on which she lives. Sara Louise ventures to the mountains and becomes a nurse. While there it is summarized in plain words for a few pages that Sara Louise married a farmer with a handful of children. A man she hardly knows. It isn't explained in the book very well if she truly loved the man. Sara continues to live in the mountains and that's the end of the book. But Sara never seems to get over her depressing comparison with her sister. This story has no emotional conclusion to reconciliation, forgiveness, and self-confidence whatsoever. It left the impression that you just have to live with the grief you got.
