Two sisters, one life-changing journey...There are some currents in the relationship between sisters that run so dark and so deep, it's better for the people swimming on the surface never to know what's beneath . . .
Katie's carefully structured world is shattered by the news that her headstrong younger sister, Mia, has been found dead in Bali - and the police claim it was suicide. With only the entries of Mia's travel journal as her guide, Katie retraces the last few months of her sister's life, and - page by page, country by country - begins to uncover the mystery surrounding her death.
What she discovers changes everything. But will her search for the truth push their sisterly bond - and Katie - to breaking point?
The Sea Sisters is a compelling story of the enduring connection between sisters.

The Death of Mia
The final revalation of how Mia dies.
This is one of Richard and Judy's Summer reads and it is definitely a perfect summer listen. It's a fairly gripping story and the characterisation is well done. It is set over the course of two sisters seperate journeys travelling around the world and the setting is very evocative. It definitely made me long to pick up a backpack and set off around the world! The only downside is the narrator- her narration was a little hit and miss. Her West country accent comes and goes, sometimes I found her a little too earnest and annoying and yet at other times her narration was quite mesmerising and really did evoke the perfect atmosphere.
