Descrizione

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.

    It was a sweet book. I’m glad that I read it.
  • (5/5)
    This was a lovely book. Loved the narration. Lots of flashbacks to the past, which sometimes can he hard to follow. I would recommend.
  • (5/5)
    This book started off slightly slow- but stick with it!!! I really, really loved it. It made me feel
    very present— tuning into my meals, my feelings, the people in my life. I think it’s her beautiful descriptions that got me to tune into life!! It’s a great love story but more importantly a great people story. It illustrates how siblings can grow up in the same home with the same parents and have two completely different upbringings. I highly recommend it.

    It was enjoyable enough. Unbelievable, but it is fiction. Just ok.
