Review: My Sister’s Secret by Tracy Buchanan

Everything you’ve built your life on is a lie

Willow’s memories of her parents are sun-drenched and full of smiles, love and laughter. But a mysterious invitation to a photographic exhibition exposes a secret that’s been buried since a tragic accident years ago.

Willow is forced to question everything she knew about Charity, her late mother, and Hope, the aunt she’s lived with since she was a child.

How was the enigmatic photographer connected to Willow’s parents? Why will Hope not break her silence?

Willow cannot move forward in her life without answers. But who can she really trust? Because no one has been telling the truth for a very long time.

ADDICTIVE, GRIPPING and EMOTIONALLY POWERFUL, this is the perfect read for your summer holiday escape.

My Thoughts:

A really good read. Tempting and teasing the story unfolds gradually in segments switching between the present and the past. With so many secrets the whole book is a puzzle, which sister and which secret?

The search for the truth takes Willow on journey often in the footsteps of Charity, her mother. At the same time a parallel story unfolds set in the past, the story of 3 sisters.

I liked the teasing nature of this book and the way it kept me as a reader guessing. There are a lot of twists and turns with many surprises. The characters are diverse and interesting.

I loved the link and constant references to the submerged forests which sets the story apart from other books I've read before.

Recommend holiday reading.
