Riley MacPherson has always believed that her older sister, Lisa, committed suicide when she was a teen. Now, twenty years later, after her father dies, Riley, while cleaning out his house finds evidence that Lisa is still alive. She is in hiding and living under an assumed name. Curiosity gets the better of Riley and she begins to research her family’s past.
The Silent Sister by Diane Chamberlain tells the story of two women, separated by two decades, but bound together by a secret that won’t stay buried. The author tells the story from both Riley and Lisa’s point of view, with plenty of clues for the sharp-eyed, but in such a subtle and masterful way, you might, like me, not figure out the astonishing answer until near the end.
A fantastic summertime read that grabbed my interest on the first page, and never let go. I received this book as a gift. I give it five stars.
