In The Silent Sister, Riley MacPherson has spent her entire life believing that her older sister Lisa committed suicide as a teenager. Now, over twenty years later, her father has passed away and she’s in New Bern, North Carolina cleaning out his house when she finds evidence to the contrary. 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 works to uncover the truth, her discoveries will put into question everything she thought she knew about her family. Riley must decide what the past means for her present, and what she will do with her newfound reality, in this engrossing mystery from international bestselling author Diane Chamberlain.


My View:

What would you do for your family? What lengths would you go to, to protect the ones that you love? This narrative is full to twists and turns and surprising reveals…The truth can hurt but keeping that truth comes at enormous costs to all. Ms Chamberlain has written a very complex narrative that seduces the reader with a slow striptease of revelation; secrets and lies are stripped bare one item at a time, each reveal adding a new complexity to the story you thought you knew, adding more substance and alluding that more is to be discovered.

This is a very satisfying easy read that is prefect to curl up with by the fire in winter or to read on the plane or on the beach.

  1. Oh, that can work very well – to have the protagonist slowly learn that everything she assumed was true…isn’t. It sounds solidly-written too. Thanks for sharing this, Carol.

  2. A friend of mine has lent me a couple of Chamberlain’s books but they remain on my bookcase unread because the cover doesn’t appeal! Maybe I’m doing her an injustice then and should pick one up…
