The Second Sister by Claire Kendal is a real riveting page turner that had me hooked and guessing from the start. It is a contemporary psychological thriller that had my heart racing and my mind turning. Written in the first person, I became totally immersed in the action.
The novel is about grief and loss. Ten years have passed but the raw grief remains. Bonds formed over a lifetime cannot be broken. “Even without you here, my closeness to you hasn’t stopped.” Love links the two sisters. Conversations still occur. The adage that time heals is a myth. Loss is still loss no matter how many years have passed.
Loss brings regrets. The past has gone. Regrets have only the power we give them to rob us of our present and future.
