BOOK REVIEW THE SILENT SISTER BY DIANE CHAMBERLAIN

WHAT IF EVERYTHING YOU BELIEVED TURNED OUT TO BE A LIE? Riley MacPherson is returning to her childhood home in North Carolina. A place that holds cherished memories. While clearing out the house she finds a box of old newspaper articles – and a shocking family secret begins to unravel.

Riley has spent her whole life believing that her older sister Lisa died tragically as a teenager. But now she’s starting to uncover the truth: her life has been built on a foundation of lies, told by everyone she loved.

Lisa is alive. Alive and living under a new identity. But why exactly was she on the run all those years ago, and what secrets are being kept now?

As Riley tries to separate reality from fiction, her discoveries call into question everything she thought she knew about her family. Can she find the strength inside herself to decide her future.

 

I was very lucky to win a proof copy of this book on twitter .I hadn’t read any of her books until recently when I gt one from the library and couldn’t put that down so was excited to read this.

This book grabs you straight away and literally gasp a number of times because its one shock and revelation after another .

I was told she has a similar writing style to Jodi Picoults and that is correct but I found this flowed much easier for me .

There are layers to this story that unravel and I just loved it .

I could relate to Riley with all that family drama and secrets .
