Aussie sisters with a love for Christian romance fiction

Book ReviewsThe BRS STory

The Book Review Sisters began in May 2011 when sisters and mums-to-toddlers, Jessica and Helen Wakefield decided to start reviewing books.

The blog grew over the next 4 years, and in addition to book reviews, the sisters wrote a variety of articles including author interviews and general writing discussion.

In 2015, Helen and Jessica moved their attentions to their individual pursuits.

Now, in 2020, the sisters have revived the blog, at least temporarily, in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
