Two childhoods destroyed.
One story they will never tell.
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.
From the best-selling author of The Betrayal, Stolen Child and Fragile Lies, comes a breathtakingly tense and emotional story of the fierce bond between sisters, and a family destroyed by a disturbing secret.

Emotional, Chilling, Secret.
Beth because she endured so much dislike from her family and so much pain with the secret and guilt she felt after leaving her sister and home. But she was also brave and wanted to do what she could to let the secret go.
I think Marcella Riordan has a very nice voice and listening to her read Sleep Sister felt emotional.
