SHORTLISTED FOR THE DAVITT AWARDS ADULT FICTION 2021

There's only been one time that Rose couldn't stop me from doing the wrong thing and that was a mistake that will haunt me for the rest of my life.


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.


PRAISE FOR THE GOOD SISTER

'Compelling story, plenty of twists and a satisfying ending. Sally is an exceptional observer of people and their relationships.' Graeme Simsion, author of The Rosie Result

'No one writes domestic suspense like Sally Hepworth. The Good Sister is the perfect blend of suspense and heart - a book that's sure to get everyone talking!' Kelly Rimmer, author of Truths I Never Told You

'One of the most well-crafted and psychologically convincing commercial novels I have seen outside of crime fiction, although this too is a crime novel of sorts. This novel is excellent on a number of fronts: characterisation, setting, structure and pacing are all done with care and skill.' Sydney Morning Herald and Age

'A great read. It's laugh out loud funny. It's as unpredictable as it is heartwarming. If you enjoyed Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine, you will find it hard to put down. Endearing. Funny. Heartwarming.' Herald Sun
