Review by ColmGuerin
This is a great read into the relationship of the two prolific sisters. Though a little verbose at times, the author gives us a valuable insight into the Stephen's early family life, their contribution to the "Bloomsbury Group" and their respective marriages. One of the joys of this book for me was the explainations it gives throughout on how Virginia's close relationship with Vanessa impacted her own writing.
