In The Silent Sister, Riley MacPherson has spent her entire life believing that her older sister Lisa committed suicide as a teenager. Now, over twenty years later, her father has passed away and she's in New Bern, North Carolina cleaning out his house when she finds evidence to the contrary. 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 works to uncover the truth, her discoveries will put into question everything she thought she knew about her family. Riley must decide what the past means for her present, and what she will do with her newfound reality.
I really enjoyed this story. Family Lies, Secrets, and Mystery?! Who doesn't enjoy that? I liked right away where the story was going with the mystery surrounding the question - "what really happened to Lisa MacPherson?".
This is one of those books where (if you are anything like me) you start guessing what happened: "X did this to Y and that's why ABC happened" and when the answer is revealed you get that excited "I KNEW IT" feeling! I love that. I also love the times my guesses where wrong and I had that "ahhh" moment.
This was my first Diane Chamberlain read and the fact that I loved it so much I will definitely be picking up more of her books.
I recommend you give this a go.
