My Review: Firstly any book that I read in a day and keeps me up past my bedtime is obviously one I would recommend. My Sister’s Bones is so much more than your average psychological thriller. The main character Kate, a wartime journalist who has just returned from Aleppo and is battling her own demons and her sister Sally an alcoholic with major issues are brought together after years apart to deal with the sale of their mother’s home after her death. There is so much more to this story and you need to read it to find out what! I found this debut novel gripping and heartbreaking in equal measures.
About The Author: Nuala Ellwood is the daughter of an award-winning journalist.
