"This story of two sisters, each broken in her own way, is as unflinching as it is compassionate. I was pulled in from the first page."
--Marisa de los Santos, New York Times bestselling author of Falling Together

For her previous novels (Things We Didn't Say, The Life You've Imagined, Real Life & Liars), author Kristina Riggle has garnered fabulous reviews and established herself as a rapidly rising star of contemporary women's fiction. In Keepsake, she explores that most complicated of relationships, as two sisters raised by a hoarder deal with old hurts and resentments, and the very different paths their lives have taken. As always, Riggle approaches important topics poignantly and honestly--including hoarding and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) in her remarkable Keepsake--while writing with real emotional power and compassion about families and their baggage. For readers of Katrina Kittle and Elin Hildenbrand, Kristina Riggle's Keepsake is a treasure.

This is a quick read but the author researched hoarding and the emotional behaviors associated with it well. She was especially successful with the emotions around the keeping of stuff, things, papers, clothes, mail,.........definitely had me thinking and reflecting.
