Pages:  352

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 new found reality, in this engrossing mystery from international bestselling author Diane Chamberlain.  (Book Jacket)

My Thoughts:   Chamberlain has created a thought provoking mystery concerning the MacPherson family and how choices, mistakes, and consequences have ruled this family.   In the beginning, Riley enters the novel very innocent of her family history and we learn of MacPherson mysteries along with Riley.  I enjoyed the story.
