My Five Sisters: A Psychological Thriller Based on a True Story of Multiple Personalities
Pam Franklin, author
My Five Sisters is a psychological thriller written by a sibling who was tortured mentally and physically from the age of six until she was thirteen by her older sister who had five distinct personalities. How long can a child be tortured mentally and physically by a sibling and still not suffer permanent psychological damage? Patra will tell you an entire childhood. By the age of six, Patra realized there was something drastically wrong with her sister, Angela. Angela, not knowingly, could switch from one personality to another in a matter of seconds. Not only was there a mental change, but there was also a physical change. Each of the five personalities had their own voice and facial expressions. They dressed differently and reacted to Patra differently. Two of the loved her, Kind and Hero, two of them tolerated her, Normal and Sad, and one of them hated her and wanted her dead, Angry. Through the tumultuous journey through Patra’s childhood there is an intriguing story of love, laughter, sorrow and pain. It shows the great strength one can maintain throughout a young life seemingly without any hope. You will find Patra’s determination to live is remarkable and her faith in her ability to survive quite astounding.
Reviews
Robin Klamfoth, Film Journal International

"A sad, tragic tale of growing up in the South during the 50s, a childhood of abuse, fear and insecurity as seen through the eyes of the child and the strength to not only survive but ultimately achieve great success and happiness in life. A compelling message of hope for lives that have been touched by mental illness."  

Viga Boland for Readers' Favorite

My Five Sisters by Pam Franklin is one of the most riveting reads I’ve ever had. Categorized by the author as a “psychological thriller” based on a true story about multiple personalities, Pam Franklin had me tightly gripping My Five Sisters from the moment I read the chilling opening lines. From that point on, I was turning pages as fast as I could go as I read about a little girl, Patra, being terrorized by her sibling, Angela, until Patra was finally old enough to stand up for herself and Angela…well…I’m not going to spoil the ending for you by telling you now what happened to her. .” 

Anthony D. Flores, Author of Lazarus Rising

My Five Sisters is captivating.  A must read for anyone who’s life has been touched by mental illness or abuse.  An intimate portrayal of a little girl that survived the unimaginable.  Pam Franklin has written a truly remarkable book.  Bottom line, I couldn’t put it down.”

Charles McDaniel, MD, Assistant Clinical Professor, Department of Psychiatry and

"Pam Franklin's book, My Five Sisters, is written from the point of view of a young girl in a family tortured by abuse and untreated mental illness. Each of these circumstances, individually, can destroy a person and a family. Together, they are devastating. The significance of Ms. Franklin's touching story shows that traumas can bleed across generations. In her search for treatment and resolution, her story serves not only as a depiction of life inside a family's chaos (a kind of chaos that too many families must live through), but also as an example of how one person can survive, seek help, and stop the cycle of intergenerational trauma."
