Summary

Some things you can never escape. I should know. I’ve been running away for 15 years, and now I’m right back where I started....

Skye Turner’s family fell apart the day her twin sister, Ginny, died. Everyone in their tiny community in the Scottish Highlands accepted it was an accident, but more than one person in town is haunted by a secret from that night....

Skye left after the funeral, believing her mother blamed her for Ginny’s death. Skye should have taken care of Ginny, should have been there to stop her falling from the cliffs that night. Over the years, she’s barely spoken to her mother, until the day she receives a phone call asking her to return home.

As soon as Skye arrives in her childhood home, she knows something isn’t right. Her mother has kept the bedroom she shared with her sister like a shrine, Ginny’s clothes and diaries gathering dust, as though her mother thinks Ginny might come back. And there are whispers in town that Ginny wasn’t alone when she died....

Skye is desperate to find out the truth, but her mother just wants her family back together. As Skye begins to unravel everyone’s lies, she realizes the truth might tear her family apart for good....

My Mother’s Silence is a twisty and emotional novel about the bonds between mothers and daughters, and what happens when we hide things from those we love the most. Fans of Diane Chamberlain, Liane Moriarty, and Kerry Fisher will be gripped.

Not a fan of the narrator

I had a hard time with the narrator. She often sounded like she mouth was very wet and it was distracting. There were also many times when it was as though she had added a snippet of words after and her voice sounded much different. Just like when they cover swear words in a movie. The story was pretty good though.
