Fern Castle works in her local library. She has dinner with her twin sister Rose three nights a week. And she avoids crowds, bright lights and loud noises as much as possible. Fern has a carefully structured life and disrupting her routine can be ... dangerous.
When Rose discovers that she cannot fall pregnant, Fern sees her chance to pay her sister back for everything Rose has done for her. Fern can have a baby for Rose. She just needs to find a father. Simple.
Fern's mission will shake the foundations of the life she has carefully built for herself and stir up dark secrets from the past, in this quirky, rich and shocking story of unexpected love.

I loved the characters so much that I couldn't put the book down, they intrigued me, I couldn't stop, I had to go on.
Knowing this, the author really should offer meal solutions along with her book.
I also liked the storyline and the twists. Css as it wait for your next book.

I was torn between both sisters not quite knowing which one to feel sad for the most.
I despised the mother and then I saw another side to her.
This is the first Sally Hepworth book I have ever read but it definitely won't be the last.
What a great book.
There were definite 'Gone Girl' vibes about this one, with half of the novel narrated directly by Fern and the other half via Rose's diary. Everything you think you know in the first half begins to unravel in the second, at the perfect pace - slow enough that it feels insidious, but never so slow that it gets boring.
I found The Good Sister to be insightful, clever, dark and delicious. It's very easy to read and I flew through it much faster than I expected. I've only awarded four stars because it didn't make me fly back to Amazon to buy another Sally Hepworth book, simply because of personal taste - but it was very good.
To the author - and presumably the editor too - there is *no similarity* between narcissism and borderline personality disorder. Do you actually know what borderline personality disorder is? I was genuinely appalled that you could have a character describe another as narcissistic or having BPD, as if BPD is somehow worse that narcissism. If I hadn't been so close to the end of the book that would have put me off reading any further.
It was well written and moved on at a great pace. It is the only book, that I have read recently that resulted me shouting at the book! I don't even shout at the TV, but I was saying, "No!" to the book. Absolutely worth the read.
