Sisters of the Seventh Planet by Teri Hoskins is a work of fiction that also incorporates much of the author's own experiences. The story takes place in 1554 and is about two sisters: elder sister Gwenneth and her younger sister, Shriya (the narrator). The sisters are from a long line of healers but they must hide what they do for fear of death. Women from the village come to them but they must never tell or they would be stoned. The local priest is controlling and evil. Shriya is truly in love with Parkin but marriage to him would not strengthen their blood lines.

Throughout the ages those that were different were feared and persecuted. Author Teri Hoskins reminds us of that fact in her book Sisters of the Seventh Planet. I believe the author has plans to make this into a series, which I suspect will be very successful. Sisters, Shriya and Gwenneth are likable characters. The priest was the epitome of evil. There are many lessons to be learned from this book. We should exam what we believe and why we believe it. Too often we accept things at face value rather than examining it, afraid to question what we’ve been told or what is merely tradition. Teri Hoskins is a talented author and I will be watching for more of her books.
