About The Silent Sister

The Silent Sister follows a woman whose father just died. She hasn’t seen him in a little bit but she goes to his place to get his things in order. That means she has to clean out his home and sell it along with getting rid of other things that he owned. But as she cleans out his home and talks to the people he talked to she starts to realize that she really didn’t know her dad as much as she thought she did. She starts to find out about things that her family never told her and she had completely forgotten.

What I thought

The Silent Sister is another book I kind of has mixed feelings about. The story follows a woman who just lost her father. Now she has to deal with all of his stuff. Stressful right? It would be to me anyways. But how would you feel if you realized that you didn’t really know your parents? The people that were involved in her father’s life seem to know so much more about him than his daughter ever did.

I think this has always been a little bit of a fear of mine. Lately, I have been in kind of a stage where I feel like I don’t know the people I’m close to. I don’t know why exactly I’m feeling this way either. But I do feel like I don’t truly know the people that I’m close to. This makes me feel like I’m going to find some sort of secret when the time does come.

That’s what really caught my attention when it came to this story. I would hate feeling like I don’t really know my family even if it was to protect me.

What aggravates me about The Silent Sister though is the fact that her dad tells random people about their situation and not her. I get trying to keep your family safe but why in the world would you tell people you are not that close with? It seems like the complete opposite of what you’re trying to accomplish. I don’t understand that it kind of feels like a plot hole to me.

Other than that I did really enjoy the story. It grabbed my attention and kept it there.
