A Sister’s Promise By Renita D’Silva


Book Description:

Two sisters. Bound by blood. Torn apart by love.
My sister – the glue that held our family together and the gatekeeper to the memories of our shared childhood.

The girl I made a pact with – to protect each other for life.

The woman who destroyed my family, my future.

And the only one who can save my daughter.

Set against the dramatic backdrop of India, A Sister’s Promise is a powerful, emotional tale of family secrets, love and the ties that bind sisters together.

My Thought’s:

This is the first book I have read by this author and it certainly won’t be the last.

A Sister’s Promise is a story of two sisters Puja and Sharda, who’s family life is shattered by love and betrayal.

I can only describe A Sister’s Promise as being a wonderfully gentle read. The story is beautifully written and though told through alternating chapters by mainly Puja, Sharda and Kushi, one of the sisters daughters, it is easy to read. Through the sister’s stories we are transported to India with the heat, sounds and smells.

The main character that stood out to me is Kushi, I love her strength and her compassion. The world would certainly be a better place if there were more people like her in it. I liked both sister’s but for me Puja was the one I could relate to, more so in her younger years.

I think this story holds an important message of how strong family bonds can be and how life is to short to hold grudges.

A heart warming story which I think will appeal to many readers.

Many thanks to Bookouture and Netgalley for an Advanced Readers Copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I have awarded this book 4/5 stars.

A Sister’s Promise is due to be published on the 2nd of July, to pre order a copy please go to Amazon.
