The Silent Sister is a gripping novel from Diane Chamberlain, the bestselling author of The Midwife's Confession.
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?
Incredibly gripping and emotionally powerful, The Silent Sister is perfect for fans of Jodi Picoult and Liane Moriarty.
A companion short story featuring Riley, The Broken String, is available in eBook.

Thoroughly enjoyed. Couldn't put the book down.
As with all of her books, this one kept me gripped through every page. I haven't read one for a year or so, but enjoyed this immensely. The storyline had such twists and emotional attachments to the characters, a real screen swiper 😝
