Everything you’ve built your life on is a lie

Willow’s memories of her parents are sun-drenched and full of smiles, love and laughter. But a mysterious invitation to a photographic exhibition exposes a secret that’s been buried since a tragic accident years ago.

Willow is forced to question everything she knew about Charity, her late mother, and Hope, the aunt she’s lived with since she was a child.

How was the enigmatic photographer connected to Willow’s parents? Why will Hope not break her silence?

Willow cannot move forward in her life without answers. But who can she really trust? Because no one has been telling the truth for a very long time

Sisters  Faith, Hope and (yes) Charity are all quite different but one thing they do have in common is their love of the ocean.

My Sisters Secret is set with different timelines and various places, which gives Ms Buchanans second novel  the most romantic and whimsical feeling.

Willow is Charity’s daughter, and Charity and Willows father Dan were drowned at sea when Willow was very young. Living with her Aunt Hope who never speaks of her sister, Willow also has a love of the sea and as a diver follows in her mothers footsteps and visits submerged forests found on a map in Charity’s belongings.

With secrets, love and a good mix of twists and turns this is a fabulous summer read. I was completely absorbed in the characterisation and plot of this novel.

I love it when an author takes a subject such as submerged forests, and gives the reader a learning experience as well as a fabulous read. I had to research such forests and found them to be some of the most beautiful things I have ever seen.

Such a wonderful tale.
