The Good Sister

  ~ I received no compensation and opinions are 100% my own or my family. ~

Synopsis (from Amazon):  Sally Hepworth, the author of The Mother-In-Law delivers a knock-out of a novel about the lies that bind two sisters in The Good Sister.

There's only been one time that Rose couldn't stop me from doing the wrong thing and that was a mistake that will haunt me for the rest of my life.

Fern Castle works in her local library. She has dinner with her twin sister Rose three nights a week. And she avoids crowds, bright lights and loud noises as much as possible. Fern has a carefully structured life and disrupting her routine can be...dangerous.

When Rose discovers that she cannot get pregnant, Fern sees her chance to pay her sister back for everything Rose has done for her. Fern can have a baby for Rose. She just needs to find a father. Simple.

Fern's mission will shake the foundations of the life she has carefully built for herself and stir up dark secrets from the past, in this quirky, rich and shocking story of what families keep hidden.

One (or more) Sentence Summary: What a great book that will have you on the edge of your seat. The Good Sister is told by alternating chapters between Rose and Fern (twins) in a diary type of format. Some entries reflect back on their childhood, which help set the stage for the story. Filled with lots of family dynamics and twist and turns you won't be able to put this book down.  

Really enjoyed Sally Hepworth's other novels The Family Next Door, The Mother's Promise and The Mother-in-Law.

Sally Hepworth has lived around the world, spending extended periods in Singapore, the United Kingdom and Canada. She is the author of The Secrets of MidwivesThe Things We KeepThe Mother's PromiseThe Family Next Door and The Mother-in-Law. Sally now lives in Melbourne with her husband, three children, and one adorable dog.
