For My Sisters
The sins of the past never lay buried forever; they always rise up from the grave and come back to haunt you. This is a story of one such instance—of four young men who mercilessly snuff out the lives of two sisters one fateful night, but not before causing irreparable harm to their bodies and to their souls. The girls find help, but they can’t survive their injuries.
Fifteen years pass, but unfortunately, this incident does nothing to awaken them to consciousness; they continue down this path of malice and brutality, not knowing the fates of those sisters nor caring for them. Instead, the men gloat upon this treachery every chance they got, along with the other sins they rack up over the years—until justice comes knocking.
Why Read It?
Reading For My Sisters serves as an eye-opener for the reader. Mueller goes into excruciating details about the harrowing crimes the men commit toward women, particularly to the two unfortunate sisters. While challenging to read at times, Virginia’s efforts offer a true reflection of what the world is like for all the women with such predators lurking out in the open with them.
The book also sheds light on how, sometimes, justice is never served, and crimes like these go unpunished, which is even more dangerous, giving these predators the bravery to continue committing the atrocities they do against women without fear of ever getting caught. Readers will find themselves re-exploring all the prejudices and realities of rape victims and how it destroys the lives of not just the victims but people close to them.

About the Novel
In the wake of his son Finnigan’s sudden death, Gerard Keller finds himself crumbling under the pressure of the crippling grief left behind. To honor his son, he decides to enlist in the U.S. Army’s research program with the help of General Maverick, a greedy man after name and fame. Gerard endeavors to create an infallible soldier who can live both on land and underwater.
Unable to produce sufficient results, Gerard is forced to resign by the general. Enraged, he vows to create his own soldier and seek vengeance upon all who have wronged him and his son. He comes across a con man named Fred, who is on the run. Finally, Gerard decides to save him and asks him to be his living test subject for the serum, which Fred agrees to.
Why Read It?
The book broaches a vital subject that is not talked about enough—how resentment festers into hatred and fuels the drive for revenge, effectively corrupting the human mind and heart. More often than not, many sensitive people have been lost to the world’s cruelties. It shows how truly fragile humanity is and the consequences of its corruption.
What’s worse, while some people are inherently evil and live to make others miserable, some are actually good people who lash out after reaching their breaking point. They have honest intentions, yet the world corrupts them to the point where they don’t even realize that their path becomes askew and does not align with what they began with.
