As a result, they band together and begin delivering some justice of their own. The Sisterhood doesn’t merely sit back and enjoy the satisfaction of seeing their members receive the recompense they deserve.
Rather, they are an active group, going out and finding other women who have suffered and failed to get their just due against those who brought them so much harm. Essential to the operations of the sisterhood is a wealthy lady called Myra Rutledge who also leads the group alongside Anna de Silver, her childhood friend who is also quite rich.
The books are all about getting revenge. Myra’s daughter died in a car accident and the responsible drunk got away scot-free because he had diplomatic immunity. Myra finds that only the Sisterhood can get to a man that is seemingly beyond the reach of the law.
And that is merely one of the cases the Sisterhood undertakes. Along the way, they take to helping a victim of brutal rape, a woman framed for a crime and a casualty of betrayal.
The Sisterhood series starts out small, with a select few women working to bring justice where it has been lacking. However, each new case builds their ranks and grows their network, giving them access to the sorts of resources they need to make real change on a global scale.
It is worth noting that Fern Michaels is a Pseudonym. The author’s real name is Mary Ruth Kuczkir. Ruth began writing fiction back in the 1970s when her husband told her to go get a job.
This was after her last born joined kindergarten. Ruth took to the challenge with some fervor and decided that she would make a living by writing books. Her first manuscript was rejected but she persevered none the less, and can now boast dozens of bestsellers.
Fern Michaels writes romance, though some of her books are more thriller than romance. She has undergone immense changes since her first book. Her characters are better developed and her plots actually make sense.
She also gives more priority to telling a good story than simply delivering steamy sex scenes, which was once one of her failings. The Sisterhood series of books has a spinoff called the Men of the Sisterhood.
While the Sisterhood series follows a group of women trying to get vengeance in those areas where the law failed them, the Men of the Sisterhood explores the lives of the sisterhood men.
After watching the Sisterhood do so much good, the men decide to finally participate in the vigilante action.
Best Sisterhood Books
The Sisterhood series is popular because it has more elements of thriller than romance, with some of the best books in the sisterhood series including the following:
Vendetta: Myra Rutledge started the sisterhood, giving women all over the country a chance to get revenge on those that hurt them. Now it is time for the Sisterhood to serve her. Myra’s daughter was pregnant when she was hit by a drunk driver. And because he had diplomatic immunity, the playboy escaped justice.
Now, the sisterhood is determined to give Myra the gift she has been craving for so long.
This book makes things a little more personal because the Sisterhood is now working to avenge their own leader’s wrongs. Their code does not allow them to kill but they still find very nasty ways of taking revenge on the man that killed Myra’s daughter.
Sweet Revenge: Rosemary framed Isabelle Flanders for a terrible drunk driving accident. And she did so for the sake of taking Isabelle’s fiancé and firm. However, the Sisterhood cannot stand by and watch one of their own suffer so.
They begin planning swift revenge against Rosemary.
This book follows the formula of every other novel in the Sisterhood series. You have a woman who has been done wrong and must now seek help from the Sisterhood to make things right.
What sets this book apart is the abrupt ending that leaves so many loose ends.
