What if the life you thought you knew was a lie? What would you do? This is what happened to Riley McPherson. She has always been under the impression her older sister Lisa committed suicide when she was a teenager. After the death of her father, Riley travels to New Bern, North Carolina, to clean up her father's house to eventually sell it so she can move on with her life back in Durham, North Carolina. As she does that, she finds evidence that her sister may not have committed suicide, actually ran away and assumed a new identity. What really happened to Lisa McPherson and why?
You must read The Silent Sister to find out what happened to Lisa McPherson. I have loved Diane Chamberlain's work ever since I read The Secret Life of CeCe Wilkes nearly ten years ago. Ten years?! I can't even believe it's been that long. Diane has a way of creating characters that make you feel as if they're right there standing next to you. I cannot believe this is a work of fiction. I was riveted from the very first sentence to the very last. As I met and grew to know Riley, at first I didn't like her but then realized she was a good person, just confused by what life threw at her. There isn't an order of books you have to read, you can start anywhere. If you're not able to get a copy, start with CeCe Wilkes. If you are able to get your hands on a copy, read it stat!
