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?

Riley must decide what the past means for her present, and what she will do with her newfound reality"--… (mais)

A person I'd just met recommended this book (and the author in general) to me. I don't usually pick what to read that way, but was intrigued by her description, and am not sorry I went with the hunch. Despite some soap opera-worthy dialogue and plotting towards the end, it was an enjoyable read, and quite gripping. Three and a half stars. ( )

Good, yet sometimes predictable. A few twists but nothing totally unexpected. I did find
It hard to put down, which is why I’m giving 4 stars. ( )

A bit generous on stars but more because of the plot line. Imagine living with a family that can not get beyond the 'death' of their prodigy violinist daughter but finding out later that she faked her death to avoid prison, you are adopted, your sister really is your mother and your birth father is who your sister murdered, your father had a girl friend and another place he stayed at, your father knew all this cause he helped plan it all. Actually began to feel sorry for trailer park people who had to keep such a secret. Wonder if Riley better to know such truths or not? ( )

Layers of family history peel back when Riley MacPherson begins to sort through the detritus of her father's life after his unexpected death. In quick succession she learns several things: she was adopted (?!), her father had a 'girlfriend' Jeannie, (her dead mother's former best friend), her father and his trailer park are beholden to a man named Tom Kile, and the sister, Lisa who died of suicide when Riley was just 2 might actually still be alive. Her only surviving relative is Danny, an older brother, who is a troubled Iraqui war vet with anger issues and lots of bitterness toward everyone in the family except Riley. He too was significantly older than Riley, so his memories of the way the family fell apart in the wake of Lisa's suicide color his attitude and outlook.
All the info is portioned out in small doses, so we discover much of the news as Riley does. There are some big shockers that I didn't see coming, which I appreciate for their novelty. It flows almost like a mystery, though less sinister and more familial. Riley copes pretty well with this major life upending, especially since she is essentially going through it alone and really can't determine who to trust. An intriguing story about secrets and family and the way choices people make impact others. ( )

I chose this book because I loved Chamberlain's Big Lies in a Small Town.
Silent Sister is built upon a layers of lies that have shaped a family over a period of time. It works up to a point because the characters are interesting, but one final lie throws all credibility out the window. ( )
