Re Novel: A Sister's Gift

 Sorry guys because i didn't post of novels' reviews recently. So today it is going to be about this book:

This novel is about two sisters-Hollie and Scarlett. Their mom passed away when they were little and they didn't know who their father was. Hollie had been taking care of Scarlett since their mom died and now Scarlett was in Brazil due to her job for almost a year and half.

Hollie and her husband, Richard didn't have a child because of Hollie's infertility. They had tried a lot of initiatives to have a child, but all of those attempt failed. Finally, Hollie found an effective way; having Scarlett as her surrogate. But, Scarlett was away in Brazil and she couldn't get in touch of her because she was in the jungle, looking for her seeds.

Fortunately, something happened and Scarlett was home. Hollie decided to ask Scarlett about her favor in that Christmas. Because of her need of money and her big secret in her life, Scarlett agreed. Was the surrogacy succeeded? What was the secret Scarlett had been keeping all those time?

Q: One issue discussed in the material?

A: Trust. Hollie trusted her little sister a lot, that she was willing to let her sister to sleep with her own husband. But, unfortunately, Scarlett betrayed her trust. This shows that we should not trust someone too much, even though they are our own siblings. Our world nowadays is full of lies and liars. In spite of that, as a human being, we should be honest and don't break someone's trust. Because trust is like a paper. Once it is crumpled, it would never be perfect again.
