Description

From the author of The Art of Inheriting Secrets comes an emotional new tale of two sisters, an ocean of lies, and a search for the truth.

Her sister has been dead for fifteen years when she sees her on the TV news…

Josie Bianci was killed years ago on a train during a terrorist attack. Gone forever. It's what her sister, Kit, an ER doctor in Santa Cruz, has always believed. Yet all it takes is a few heart-wrenching seconds to upend Kit's world. Live coverage of a club fire in Auckland has captured the image of a woman stumbling through the smoke and debris. Her resemblance to Josie is unbelievable. And unmistakable. With it comes a flood of emotions—grief, loss, and anger—that Kit finally has a chance to put to rest: by finding the sister who's been living a lie.

After arriving in New Zealand, Kit begins her journey with the memories of the past: of days spent on the beach with Josie. Of a lost teenage boy who'd become part of their family. And of a trauma that has haunted Kit and Josie their entire lives.

Now, if two sisters are to reunite, it can only be by unearthing long-buried secrets and facing a devastating truth that has kept them apart far too long. To regain their relationship, they may have to lose everything.

    Excellent. A story about healing that includes mystery, suspense and heartbreak... wrapping up to be very heartwarming.

  • (5/5)
    Heartfelt and full of honest emotion. You must have been a young woman of that general age to fully appreciate the changes in society and expectations between then and now, but the the story should ring true for readers who are younger. Love comes and lives in many variations but the essence that is always necessary can be found in the guts of this story. Enjoy.

    This was a lovely book. Loved the narration. Lots of flashbacks to the past, which sometimes can he hard to follow. I would recommend.
