by Sally Hepworth
I just finished reading “The Good Sister” by Sally Hepworth. All I can say is BRAVO!!. What a great book. The main character (Fern) is absolutely delightful. She has a twin sister named Rose who always takes care of and protects her…or does she?
Rose and Fern are twins and have a shared secret about a past event that occured in their childhood. The story is told through Fern’s perspective (she is a librarian with sensory issues who relies on her sister alot) and Rose’s diary which explains her perspective on her past and present. Fern wants to make Rose happy by having a baby for her, but slowly begins to realize that perhaps Rose isn’t who she seems to be. In the meantime, Fern meets “Wally”…let the fun begin. I won’t tell you who the good sister is, you need to read the book to find out.
I devoured this book in two days, and I was so caught up in it I even forgot to eat lunch. The mystery in this book slowly unravels itself and the author perfectly sums it all up at the end..leaving no stone unturned or questions unanswered.
I love books that have great characters and Fern was just that. So well written that I couldn’t help but love her and want the best for her. There weren’t alot of unnecessary characters or events in the story and I felt like every chapter was important to understanding the relationship between the two sisters and how it developed over time.
I loved the ending and felt satisfied that all characters got what they deserved. I can’t recommend this book enough. Definately a must read for all lovers of this genre (psychological thriller). I am so happy I read this book. Sally Hepworth, the author, never disappoints and I will definately read more from her!
