What’d I think? I think this was a superb read! I say this every time I give a book five stars but I really so rarely do. There’s something about a book that makes me block out everything in space and time, forego food and other habits because I just can’t put it down. I NEED to know what happens.
The Silent Sister is vividly written, moderately paced. Parts of this story are told through Lisa’s POV, which was enlightening. Watching the details bob to the surface and the two POV’s dovetail to reveal the huge, devastating mystery was sheer entertainment.
Of all of the characters, I think I felt the most sympathy for Riley’s brother, Danny. Caught between the horrors of war and the tearing apart of his family, his anger and anxiety are palpable, his discomfort jumping off of the page. His deep love for his sister redeems his cold and calculating demeanor and his final act of love toward her was so benevolent, it brought tears to my eyes.
The Silent Sister was an excellent, perfect read. I really enjoyed it.
