The Good Sister by Sally Hepworth Review


Fern and Rose are twins. Will you be able to guess which one is the good sister? It seems like they have always looked out for each other, or Rose looks out for Fern. Rose is married and wants a baby, while Fern is happy to be a librarian. When Fern finds out that Rose is struggling to conceive, she decides she will have a baby for her twin sister. When Fern gets pregnant, things get interesting.


The story is told from Rose and Fern’s POV, as well as journal entries. They’ve always been there for each other, always looked out for each other. They are good sisters, but where do the boundaries lay?


Although this was a slow burn, I still enjoyed the story and wanted to know what would happen next. There were plot twists along the way to keep the reader interested and entertained. As we get to know the sisters, although twins, we learn that they have very different characters. This is a highly engaging family drama story that will keep you turning page after page until the very last twist.


Thank you to NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press for my digital copy in exchange for a review. As always, my reviews are my own and unbiased opinions.


Rating: 4 stars



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 get 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 what families keep hidden.

Happy Reading!
