Can she hide the truth to protect those she loves?

Rowan Sykes is overjoyed when her beloved sister Laurel takes a new job and moves back to Fairley Terrace.

Laurel is protective of her fiercely clever younger sister, who has always struggled to fit in, yet whilst she’s happy to be home, she’s keeping the real reason for her return to herself. It seems she is destined to keep repeating the mistakes of her past when it comes to matters of the heart.

Both Laurel and Rowan long for excitement and a fresh start, and when familiar faces return to Fairley Terrace, along with an enigmatic new resident, it looks like they might get their wish. But their harmony is about to be shattered by a mysterious stranger who threatens to expose a long-kept secret – and is prepared to stop at nothing to wreak revenge on the family.

Don’t miss Jennie’s the rest Families of Fairley Terrace series, which begins with Maggie’s story in All The Dark Secrets and continues with Lucy’s story in The Miner’s Daughter, Edie’s story in The Girl Below Stairs, Carina’s story in The Widow’s Promise and Laurel’s story in The Sister’s Secret.

Plus look out for Jennie’s page-turning standalones – The Stolen Child, A Mother’s Sacrifice and The Smuggler’s Girl – coming soon!
