Summary

THE INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

"A stunningly clever thriller made doubly suspenseful by not one, but two unreliable narrators." -- People

Sally Hepworth, the author of The Mother-In-Law delivers a knock-out of a novel about the lies that bind two sisters in The Good Sister .

There's only been one time that Rose couldn't stop me from doing the wrong thing and that was a mistake that will haunt me for the rest of my life.

Fern Castle works in her local library. She has dinner with her twin sister Rose three nights a week. And she avoids crowds, bright lights and loud noises as much as possible. Fern has a carefully structured life and disrupting her routine can be...dangerous.

When Rose discovers that she cannot get pregnant, Fern sees her chance to pay her sister back for everything Rose has done for her. Fern can have a baby for Rose. She just needs to find a father. Simple.

Fern's mission will shake the foundations of the life she has carefully built for herself and stir up dark secrets from the past, in this quirky, rich and shocking story of what families keep hidden.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Hepworth's latest (after The Mother-in-Law, 2019) further solidifies her place among the top domestic suspense authors. Twins Fern and Rose have protected one another all their lives, including from a mother who seems to do nothing but belittle them. They've never told their childhood secret, each safeguarding the other from the consequences. Now grown, Fern struggles with sensory issues but enjoys her life as a librarian. Rose longs to have a baby but has been unable to do so. Fern sees a perfect opportunity to support Rose by becoming pregnant herself and giving Rose the baby. But secrets have a way of coming to light and exposing those who are not what they seem to be. Narration alternates between Rose's adolescent diary and Fern in the present day, successfully revealing just enough insight into each character's motivations. Fern is drawn as smart, capable, and probably on the spectrum, and she is multilayered and relatable to readers, illustrating Hepworth's talent for page-turners with depth. Give to fans of Shari Lapena, Paula Hawkins, or fellow Australians Liane Moriarty and Kelly Rimmer."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Rose Castle and her twin sister, Fern, who share narrative duties in this addictive psychological thriller from Hepworth (The Mother-in-Law), live in Victoria, Australia. Rose is a married interior designer, and Fern is a librarian who suffers from a sensory processing disorder. When Fern discovers that Rose desperately wants to become a mother, but has been unable to conceive, she considers everything Rose has done for her, including protecting Fern from their abusive mother during their childhood, and decides to act as a surrogate. To that end, she seduces a library patron in order to get pregnant. Fearful of Fern's emotional fragility, Rose moves in with her sister to ensure the pregnancy runs smoothly. Excerpts from Rose's journal heighten the suspense by gradually revealing the abuse the girls suffered as children. Meanwhile, Fern expresses her growing discomfort with her sister's arrangements while giving insights into living with her disorder. Punchy prose helps propel the twisty plot to a creepy but satisfying conclusion. For fans of domestic dramas, this is a treat. (Apr.)"
