A Sister’s Promise by Caroline Finnerty

I’m so pleased to be part of the tour today for this beautiful book. Thanks so much to Rachel’s Random Resources and Boldwood Books for the copy of the book and invitation to be part of the tour.

Sisters Laura and Penny were once close, bonded together after the early death of their mother. Laura always had her younger sister’s back until one day everything changed and Penny disappeared.

Twenty years later Laura finds herself alone and at a crossroad in her life; questioning her marriage and her future.

Meanwhile Penny has spent her whole life running away from her problems until one day she is forced to stop and face the shocking truth.

When Penny turns up on Laura’s doorstep late one stormy night, holding the hand of a shivering little girl, Laura is immediately suspicious of her sister’s motives. Just what does Penny want and who is this little girl?

Penny carries a devastating secret that will test their bond as sisters and is forced to make an impossible choice.

Can the sisters find it within their hearts to forgive and unite before it’s too late?

My Review

I am a huge fan of this author and I was delighted to read and review this gorgeous book.

As always, the author combines a completely compelling family drama with completely relatable characters and it makes for a book that is so hard to put down.

The story is told from both of the sisters’ points of view and it’s so sad to see how they fell out in the past, when they used to be so close as children.

I liked both of them as characters and I was particularly fond of little Willow, Penny’s daughter.

This is a totally engrossing read and found myself completely drawn into the story. The themes of family and of love are very strong in this book and the story flows beautifully.

I can’t say too much about why Penny comes home, or what follows this but, like real life, it’s heart-breaking and also has many beautiful and uplifting moments.

This is a book that held me captivated and engrossed but that also broke my heart. It’s really moving and poignant, but it’s all so sensitively written.

An absolutely gorgeous and emotional read, I can’t recommend it enough, just be prepared to shed some tears.
