All That We Carried by Erin Bartels

Two sisters that have been estranged since the death of their parents go on a hiking trip to reconnect.

It may not have been the best idea.  It was a pretty stressful trip, and both sisters still held grudges.

Melanie and Olivia had some good moments, but most of the trip was bickering.

ALL THAT WE CARRIED wasn't as enjoyable for me as Ms. Bartels' first two books. I actually wasn't anxious to get back to the book.

Those readers who enjoy family drama and hiking will love this book.

The writing is amazing as always, but it was different from her other books and not something for me. 3/5

This book was given to me by the publisher and LibraryThing in exchange for an honest review.


  1. Thanks for sharing. It does sound tempting, but I don't usually like hiking stories. LOL.

  2. Thanks for the review. You win some you lose some!
