TUESDAY EXCERPTS: “THE GOOD SISTER”

Welcome to another Tuesday celebrating bookish events: First Chapter/Intros, now hosted by  Socrates Book Reviews; and Teaser Tuesdays hosted by The Purple Booker.

Today’s feature is a NetGalley ARC that will be released on 4/13/21:  The Good Sister, by Sally Hepworth.

***

Intro: (Journal of Rose Ingrid Castle)

It’s been three months since Owen left.  Left, or left me-–like so many things in the adult world, it’s all a bit gray. He took a job in London; a work opportunity, ostensibly.  It’s not that I wasn’t invited, but it was clear to both of us that I couldn’t go.  That’s another thing about the adult world:  responsibilities.  In my case, one particular responsibility.  Fern.

Teaser: 

It wasn’t easy leaving Owen.  In fact, it was probably the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do.  But if there was even a chance that Fern was in danger, it was worth it.

Synopsis:  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.
