Anna Dufresne lives in a factory that eats children. If the brutal machines don't kill Anna, her guardians' neglect and abuse probably will. The only thing this abandoned teen wants is out. But the factory is inside a stone fortress, on an island, where people are sent to be forgotten. It serves as a dumping ground -- both for orphans who are not welcome at finer institutions, and for nuns who have disgraced the Church. The walls of Saint Frances du Chantal's Orphan Asylum hum with secrets and buried scandal. In the catacombs below the factory, something long dead, something almost forgotten, stirs. It offers Anna a key, and promises freedom, if she will seek it out when she escapes. She knows her plan will endanger the other children, but Anna cannot resist the call of freedom. Her escape attempt triggers a chain reaction of chaos, shaking the orphanage to its foundation and laying bare its deadly secrets. As Anna flees into the night, she discovers that the evil nuns were the least of her worries. The swirling mist of the island hides terrors more dangerous than she could ever imagine.

Axel Blackwell grew up in one of those small Indiana towns where the only fun is the kind you make yourself. Many ghost sightings and UFO sightings in the central Indiana area between 1985 and 1990, as well as several small fires, can be attributed to Axel and his brothers attempting to escape boredom. Axel now lives with his wife in the Pacific Northwest. He still enjoys summoning ghosts and fires, but has learned to bind these creations within the pages of a book...most of the time.Review:
Sisters of Sorrow is a real page turner. I started it one day and finished it the next. It was very easy to imagine every scene, (this story would make an awesome movie). Anna is an interesting character...she will have to face not only the evil around her, but also the darkness within herself, and often the reader will wonder whether she'll make the right choice. This book kept me entertained and was quite exciting. While it isn't a full-on horror that makes you sleep with the lights on, I did feel uneasy every now and then. It's just the perfect mix!
