The Good Sister by Sally Hepworth ~ My Thoughts #TheGoodSister #NetGalley

The Good Sister by Sally Hepworth
Sisters Fiction, Domestic Thrillers, 320 pages
Published April 13th 2021 by St. Martin's Press

From the outside, everyone might think Fern and Rose are as close as twin sisters can be: Rose is the responsible one and Fern is the quirky one. But the sisters are devoted to one another and Rose has always been Fern's protector from the time they were small.

Fern needed protecting because their mother was a true sociopath who hid her true nature from the world, and only Rose could see it. Fern always saw the good in everyone. Years ago, Fern did something very, very bad. And Rose has never told a soul. When Fern decides to help her sister achieve her heart's desire of having a baby, Rose realizes with growing horror that Fern might make choices that can only have a terrible outcome. What Rose doesn't realize is that Fern is growing more and more aware of the secrets Rose, herself, is keeping. And that their mother might have the last word after all.

My thoughts about The Good Sister~~

(I love to note the first lines of the books I'm reading. First lines can really grab a reader's attention and I love seeing where the author takes the reader after their first line.)

First line—"It's been three months since Owen left. Left, or left me—like so many things in the adult world, it's all a bit gray."

This story enticed me from the very first chapter and I was hooked. The title alone made me question everything I learned about both of the sisters. Which one was the good one? And what made the other one 'bad'? 

I definitely preferred one sister over the other but I'm not going to say anything more and will let you come to your own conclusions. The writing was easy to read and the author really got into the heads of the characters and gave me, the reader, a clear look at the world's of the two sisters. The way the story twisted out in the end was so satisfying. And left me pondering the true end result. 

Sally Hepworth is a new author to me and I honestly loved everything about The Good Sister, her newest book. Although I have previously seen her books being talked about, this is the first one of hers I've read. I look forward to reading more!

I received a copy of The Good Sister via NetGalley and this is my honest opinion.
