Summary

My mother kept me. But she let my only sister go.... 

In a freezing, isolated farmhouse with ice on its windows, Flora is looking after her sick mother. Since she was a little girl, Flora has been frightened of her mother. And now, as she pulls the heavy curtains shut, and lights fires, she can sense her mother’s disappointment that it is Flora who is at her bedside. Determined to help, Flora begins to organize her mother’s things. But, when she discovers a photo of a smiling baby girl she doesn’t recognize, hidden at the bottom of a drawer, her mother grows even more remote, and refuses to talk about it. 

As Flora delves into the story behind her mother’s secret photograph, she unearths the story of a hidden, teenage love affair - a dark betrayal, and two sisters tragically split apart. So, when a visitor arrives from a paradise island of sapphire coves and white sand beaches, and confirms that the baby in the picture is her sister, she should feel joy. But, he also brings the news that Flora’s sister is dying. 

With the clock ticking, Flora boards a plane, desperate to meet her long-lost sister, the only person who might understand her. Together, they may find answers at last - for why were two innocent little girls forced to live separate lives, on opposite sides of the world? 

A heartbreaking and emotional listen about love, letting go, and a family torn apart in the saddest of circumstances. Fans of Jodi Picoult, Lucinda Riley, and Jojo Moyes will never forget The Sapphire Cove.
