Most of the time, I think I know my five sisters inside and out. But every once in a while I am reminded that regardless of how connected we are as a family, and as sisters, there are parts of each other we do not know. In Rosamund Lupton’s novel Sister, Bee stuggles with this idea as she investigates the details of her sister’s life in search of the real story behind her untimely death. A book that combines a murder mystery with the emotional story of the bond between sisters, this book just made its way to the top of my list!
“‘Sister’ is filled equally with heart and that intense adrenaline rush that comes with harrowing twists and turns.” - Nancy Harris, The Boston Globe
“With “Sister,” Lupton, who has a long history as a scriptwriter, enters the highly charged ring where the best psychological detective writers spar, her hands raised in a victory clench. She encircles her story with electrified ropes: new developments continually jolt her readers, which doesn’t stop them from eagerly — and a little sadistically — awaiting the impact of the next blow.” – Liesl Schillinger, The NY Times
“When New York-based designer, Beatrice, gets a call in the middle of Sunday lunch to say that her younger sister, Tess, has gone missing, she boards the first plane back to London. Framed as a letter from Beatrice to Tess, the facts of Tess’s disappearance and the following investigation into her probable murder are drip-fed to the reader, as are details from their difficult childhood.” - Emma Hagestadt, The Independent
