The Silent Sister by Diane Chamberlain

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, in this engrossing New York Times bestselling mystery from Diane Chamberlain.

Family secrets, every family has them, don’t they?  Secrets taken to the grave and often, should not be.  I’m one who believes in honesty in family.

First novel I’ve read by this author.  Surprises and twists, a couple of unexpected turns.  Sometimes the characters drove me nuts with their weaknesses and thoughtlessness, but as a friend on GoodReads told me. that’s good writing and it’s what makes them more real.

The story itself dragged on at times, like a 2 and half hour movie that could have been shorter. That being said, it was an easy read and one I enjoyed reading and would recommend.
