My Sister’s Secret by Diane Saxon

Not A Book To Miss

My Sister’s Secret by Diane Saxon is a marvelous contemporary psychological suspense that gripped me from the start.

Four sisters bonded closely by a childhood secret. They live very different lives but are always there for each other. A day in the past unites them, but about which they do not talk. If ever they did, then the floodgates would open.

Terrible childhood events haunt a character – one day aged nine years old would remain forever. She kept quiet and he got away with it. Every day since, the guilt and the fear have eaten her up. Never again must an innocent life suffer if she can help it.

All the characters were well drawn, likable and realistic. The reader is horrified by the amount of suffering the four lead characters have faced. The past never leaves them.

We see the fierce protection of a mother’s love. There are no lengths to which she will not go in order to protect her children – no matter how old they are.

The novel is written in alternating time periods and from alternating points of view in both the first and the third person. We become intimately acquainted with the characters whom we applaud for becoming over-comers. We hear a first person voice throughout. It is up to us to work out who is doing the talking.

My Sister’s Secret is absolutely heart-breaking as we witness innocent lives being ripped apart. Those who should protect, abuse their positions of power.

Diane Saxon has written a compelling tale and one that will haunt me forever. This is such a powerful book and one you do not want to miss.

I received a free copy from Rachel’s Random Resources for a blog tour. A favourable review was not required. All opinions are my own.


My Sister’s Secret

Four sisters, four secrets. Who has the deadliest of them all?

Something happened to me when I was nine.

My childhood memories before that fateful day are gone. Extinguished.

The aftermath has become a living nightmare with a guilt that runs so deep that I’m not sure I can ever tell anyone. I fear I’ve left it too late…

The burden of my secret and the hurt and pain that silence cost each and every member of my family is too overwhelming.

But you can’t avoid fate and now I have the opportunity to right the wrongs inflicted on us.

There was no justice. Not then. Not now. But I can change that.

The big question is, how far am I willing to go?
