REVIEW: FULL OF TWISTS AND TURNS
The Good Sister is full of twists and turns, making the audiobook version a great motivator to move — five sneaker ratings! (The Walking Book Club has a friendly rule that you have to be moving to listen.)
Right from the beginning, you’ll be asking yourself, “who is the good sister?” Fern or Rose? And will keep you guessing right up until the end.
The Good Sister is an intriguing psychological thriller without being violent or disturbing. Set in Australia, the narrator is perfect! Barrie Kreinik seamlessly alters her voice for each sister, making the quality of narration rating five sneakers too!

Here’s what our members had to say about The Good Sister:
“I can’t say enough about this book… The Good Sister by Sally Hepworth is about two very different fraternal twins. Fern is a librarian who leads a very structured life and has some sensory issues. Her sister Rose helps to take care of her, and when Rose is unable to get pregnant, Fern thinks of a way she can repay her for all her assistance. What could go wrong here, right?! The character development is exquisite and delves into the personality traits and interpersonal relationships of several characters with troubling characteristics which are not labeled but left for us to uncover through their actions and words in a way that drew me in and didn’t let go of until the very last word… This book also contains a lot of diversity and refreshingly accurate descriptions of sensory issues and type one diabetes which really impressed me as a MOD (mother of a diabetic teen).
I give this book a five sneaker rating across the board for motivation to move, quality of narration, and overall experience. There’s nothing I could ask for in a book that this story did not deliver!”
