by Sandie Jones
I just finished reading “The Half Sister”, by Sandie Jones, who is quickly becoming one of my go-to authors. I would consider this book a domestic thriller and it is quite a read.
The story centers around a family of two girls and a mother (the father is recently deceased), and follows their reaction when a mysterious young woman appears on the mom’s doorstep claiming to be their half-sister, fathered obviously by the dead father who can’t provide any clarity.
There are some sub-plots like the one sister’s (Kate) difficulty with getting pregnant, and the other sister’s (Lauren) difficulty with her loser husband.
The story is told from the perspective of the two sisters, one who is accepting, the other who isn’t. In the middle is the mother, who I couldn’t quite decide whether I liked or not.
There is alot of action and revelation which drives the story and makes it interesting to read. I definately wanted to find out the truth…and in the end I did.
The story was concluded in a way that left me satisfied and happy. I really liked the sisters, but there were a few unanswered questions that left me wondering…
All in all, a good book and a worthy read.
