The Silent Sister by Diane Chamberlain


Riley MacPherson is returning to her childhood home in North Carolina. a place that holds cherished memories. While clearing out the house she finds a box of old newspaper articles – and a shocking family secret begins to unravel.

Riley has spent her whole life believing that her older sister Lisa died tragically as a teenager. But now she’s starting to uncover the truth: her life has been built on a foundation of lies, told by everyone she loved. 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 tries to separate reality from fiction, her discoveries call into question everything she thought she knew about her family. Can she find the strength inside herself to decide her future?


Our group enjoyed this book.  A great read; with well-development characters and a story that kept us turning the pages.  Each chapter revealed another piece of the puzzle, so to speak.  This story kept us guessing up until the end, with an ending that surprised us all!  This book would make a great holiday read.
