My review of Sleep Sister by Laura Elliot

Two childhoods destroyed.
One story they will never tell.
Until now.

Beth ran away from her family when she was a teenager. She left behind a terrible evil that took her innocence. She also left behind her sister, Sara. When Beth returns home, she is shocked to discover her terrible secret is not just hers alone…she shares it with Sara. Under the shadow of a remote headland, the sisters make an oath they promise never to break. Eva’s birth is a mystery that remains unsolved. Years later with her marriage in ruins, and her future uncertain, she realizes that to move forward with her life, she must first understand her past. But while Eva is drawing closer to the truth about her roots, Beth and Sara’s lives are falling apart, crushed under the weight of the secret they carry. They must confront the past and face the darkness once more. But this time, their story will be heard

This is a tense and breathtakingly emotional story of the fierce bond between sisters, and a family destroyed by a harrowing and disturbing secret. I knew when I read the blurb for this book it would be one that was very emotional and I wanted to see how the author would deal with such tough subjects, well she does it very well with passion and care and its is handled with just the right touch.  I really felt for Beth, Sara and Eva and feel privileged to have read the book, it also is really thought provoking to think of how many people were, and are, really in this situation. Its just heart breaking some things that go on. The writing style was graceful and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
