to Maddy, an initiate in the order who is having difficulty calling the elements and as such has been receiving tutelage from one of the most powerful mages in the order, Lillian By the time the story

Salbine Sisters is a religious order of magi who reside together in a monestary We are introduced to Maddy, an initiate in the order who is having difficulty calling the elements and as such has been receiving tutelage from one of the most powerful mages in the order, Lillian By the time the story starts, the two have also formed a relationship beyond that of Mistress and student.The problems start, not because of the lesbian relationship nor the age difference although that does concern Lillian nor the difference in rank but the fact that despite receiving a calling to serve the order it transpires that Maddy is what the Sisters term malflowed which is an inability to wield elements or perform magic Whilst those around Maddy attempt to convince her that performing magic is not the only thing there is to being a sister in the service of Salbine it s not long before Maddy sets out on a journey to another monestary to research the journals of another who suffered from the same problem.Unfortunately, she never arrives and it turns out that the general populace also shares the view that wielding magic is part and parcel of being a sister and Maddy is viewed a fraud and sent to prison It is there where she meets Emmey and suffers hardship and learns what it is to be in the service of Salbine.I can t express how wonderful, sweet and romantic this love story is All three of the main characters, Maddy, Lillian and Emmey go through a personal journey and by the end of the book are where they need to be Maddy s journey is especially harrowing and heart rending As I ve stated, this is very much a character story so there is little to no world building to detract from the story For example, we don t know where the order came from, the name of the world or country it is set in, why those called have markings appear on their hands And you know what It doesn t need it either.Another review of mine slated authors who ended their books in a cliff hanger and I admonished that a good story is sufficient to make a reader want further books by the author The Salbine Sisters is a self contained novel where every major thread is resolved but is such a great story that I would love to see a sequel set perhaps five years in the characters future I m racking my brains but I would also have to say that this is the first lesbian romance that I ve read and I wonder if there are similar ilk of such a high standard Gosh, I loved this read I ve seen this book around for awhile but always passed it up and now I wish I hadn t.The book mainly centers around the character of Maddy, a sister in a monastery, that worships a female goddess that is known for giving the gift of drawing on the elements of water, air, fire, and earth to her chosen ones Maddy s been chosen but when it comes to her gifts they re not what she expected nor what anyone in recent memory has ever seen.I read a lot of lesfic and lament abou Gosh, I loved this read I ve seen this book

memory has ever seen.I read a lot of lesfic and lament about the overdone tropes a couple that doesn t communicate, a couple that fights with each other instead of joining forces to overcome obstacles, too much angst, forced drama, predictability, and so on I m happy to say this book didn t have any of those, making it a fresh read.The book takes place in a medieval type world with paranormal aspects Though it has a fantasy world vibe which often implies action and adventure, this book isn t about that The journey is about Maddy s internal struggles and finding her way after she doubts her purpose She s a great character and I really loved following her path.What s also refreshing is that the book starts off with Maddy already in a relationship and we get to see it grow stronger as she and her girlfriend become closer And who is she in a relationship with An older woman that is described as plump and pleasing looking but not pretty Unfortunately, we don t get details on Maddy or Lillian outside of that but we definitely don t get the perfect and unrealistic supermodels we so often see And, where other authors take pleasure in inserting angst and dragging it out to increase the drama, that also didn t happen There were so many instances in this book where a problem was dropped into the story and instead of us having to agonize chapter upon chapter to get a resolution, Ettritch got straight to the point I would hug this author alone for that if I could.I found the entire narrative to be engaging and I was completely transported to another world There was also something about the read I can only describe as warm This one really got to the heart of me and, in a rare feat, it actually got me teary but in a good way.This is another indie author that managed to give us a high quality read in both editing and story line I m lucky to have found a plethora of Sarah Ettritch books on Scribd and I ll be reading every one of them.I definitely recommend

and all she knew to become a Sister of Salbine, who is sure in the knowledge that she s where she s meant to be Her relationship with the outwardly irascible, yet inwardly shy Lillian, an older Mistress of the order, is bringing her joy Especially when, after a few stumbles, they work out that they both wantfrom the other than just a bed partner All this changes however, when she suffers a crisis of faith after she discovers she can t draw on the elements, which sets her apart from all other Sisters This prompts her to travel to another monastery to research her condition and hopefully gain an understanding of her place in the world Little does she know how life changing the journey will be Maddy and Lillian are wonderfully written, their budding romance is wonderful, as is the way Maddy can see right past Lillian s gruff exterior Sarah has given us a wonderful cast of supporting characters and a story that engrosses you from the start I really like the way Sarah writes, she doesn t bombard you with huge passages of facts and data in setting up this new world, but masterfully weaves snippets of important history and information throughout the story The Salbine Sisters has everything you would want, at heart a romance but liberally laced with adventure, humour and character growth that has you cheering them on It s a complete story with no threads left hanging, yet there are some intriguing elements of the story that call out for another book, I d love to readin the story of Maddy and Lillian and the Salbine Sisters
