Two sisters. Best of friends. Worst of enemies.
The stunning novel from the English Jodi Picoult.

Hollie Hudson and her husband Richard are fast losing hope...

Despite her infertility, Hollie is unable to give up her dream of having her own family and so calls on her last chance - her wayward half-sister. 24-year-old blonde bombshell Scarlett is the antithesis of her darker, more reserved older sister and capable of giving Hollie the miracle she so desperately desires.

Having single-handedly bought Scarlett up after their runaway mother abandoned them, Scarlett knows she owes Hollie everything - and now it's time to pay her back with the ultimate gift.

After a number of unsuccessful IVF attempts, the doctor advises that Scarlett and Richard try the natural method to conceive. Scarlett hides her delight as she has always harboured a secret crush on Richard, and Hollie is desperate to try anything. However Richard baulks at the idea, realising the problems it will cause later on...

While Hollie is delighted when Scarlet later falls pregnant, little does she know that she may be bringing a child into a shattered family which harbours secrets and dangerous desires.

Find out more in this mesmerising and heartbreaking tale from a stunning British talent about sacrifice, sisterhood and the ultimate gift..

Review: A Sister's Gift

User Review  - Julie Davis - Goodreads

Really did not enjoy this book and struggled to finish it. This was despite the fact that the first few chapters were good and Hollie lives in my area so I recognised lots of places. Neither of the main characters is very likeable and the ending was very disappointing. Read full review
