The Forgotten Sister Press Reviews

I was so invested in every word of this novel. An unthinkable situation, but highly believable, this story is spellbinding, real, and brilliantly written. I felt for every character. It mines the depth of every possible human emotion. Caroline Bond will go far. * Carol Mason, author of After You Left, on The Second Child * I stayed up long into the night to finish The Second Child... a carefully crafted and utterly compelling tale of lost opportunity and impossible choices. * Amanda Brooke, author of The Bad Mother, on The Second Child * Caroline Bond takes a complex situation and has written a thoughtful, wrenching and, at times, tear-jerking novel. * Elizabeth Buchan, author of The Museum of Broken Promises, on The Second Child * A deftly written novel [and] a moving exploration of love between sisters and the tangled, often complex emotions that exist in families. * Madeleine Reiss, author of Someone to Watch Over Me * Accomplished and deeply affecting, The Forgotten Sister examines how perilous secrets can be in families, and yet how some bonds are almost impossible to break. It really resonated with me. * Carol Mason, author of After You Left * Caroline Bond has a gift for weaving heart-rending tales of impossible decisions and The Forgotten Sister is no exception. A beautifully written story that will stay with me for quite some time. Would I have made the same choices? * Amanda Brooke, author of The Bad Mother *
