Book Description:

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.

Adele’s Review:

I thoroughly enjoyed reading The Good Sister. Once I got immersed in the story and accustomed to the voices of fraternal twin sisters Fern and Rose, I couldn’t stop reading. (And Wally! Loved his character.) The tender, heartwarming relationship and fledgling romance between Fern and Wally, two people on the Spectrum, became the perfect balance to the thriller elements of the book. I never saw the plot twists coming. One of the best books I’ve read this year. A terrific read. Don’t miss this one!

Many thanks to St, Martin’s Press, who consistently publish many of my favorite books, and NetGalley for the opportunity to read and review an ARC of this novel.
