批評家のレビュー

“Sharp and mysterious, The Winter Sister explores the complex bonds between families, the secrets that tie people together - and those that break them apart. A haunting debut: suspenseful, atmospheric, and completely riveting.” (Megan Miranda, New York Times best-selling author of All the Missing Girls and The Perfect Stranger)

"Atmospheric and heart-rending, The Winter Sister brilliantly weaves together a gripping, suspenseful plot with a compelling character study of a grieving family. From the mysterious mother with a hidden past, to the guilt-ridden sister who now must solve her sister’s murder years ago, these characters will stay with you long after you’ve turned the final page. Wonderful!" (Wendy Walker, best-selling author of All Is Not Forgotten and Emma in the Night)

あらすじ・解説

In this spellbinding and suspenseful debut, a young woman haunted by the past returns home to care for her ailing mother and begins to dig deeper into her sister’s unsolved murder.

Sixteen years ago, Sylvie’s sister, Persephone, never came home. Out too late with the boyfriend she was forbidden to see, Persephone was missing for three days before her body was found - and years later, her murder remains unsolved.

In the present day, Sylvie returns home to care for her estranged mother, Annie, as she undergoes treatment for cancer. Prone to unexplained “Dark Days” even before Persephone’s death, Annie’s once-close bond with Sylvie dissolved in the weeks after their loss, making for an uncomfortable reunion all these years later. Worse, Persephone’s former boyfriend, Ben, is now a nurse at the cancer center where Annie is being treated. Sylvie’s always believed Ben was responsible for the murder - but she carries her own guilt about that night, guilt that traps her in the past while the world goes on around her.

As she navigates the complicated relationship with her mother, Sylvie begins to uncover the secrets that fill their house - and what really happened the night Persephone died. As it turns out, the truth will set you free, once you can bear to look at it.

The Winter Sister is a mesmerizing portrayal of the complex bond between sisters, between mothers and daughters alike, and forces us to ask ourselves - how well do we know the people we love most?

DON'T WASTE YOUR CREDITS

Seriously, I hate to be so critical of people who write, but this was just painful. It might have been the narrator, her inflections just trivialized what was supposed to be suspenseful and shocking. Also, there was nothing shocking revealed as it was super easy to catch on to the big plot "twist." Just bad.

Fantastic read!

I loved this book so much that I listened to the audiobook all in a day. I just could not put it down, it was wise, sometimes funny, and most of all, suspenseful! Very psychologically insightful and well-written. I would love to read more from this author. Great job by the narrator as well.

SKIP: Basic, cheesy and juvenile

This was the most boring, predictable story. I didn’t remotely like any of the characters...all stupid and sulky. The author’s juvenile and overly simple descriptive style plus use of cheesy analogies were annoying! Every other sentence was some dumb metaphor or simile. I will not listen to this author again.

Well written, well told

The story kept me engaged. It was well thought out. I Loved the voice of the narrator. I could not give it full stars. I found that I would get impatient with all the “ as Ifs “ just too many analogies. Overall I would definitely recommend this book and I already have.

Not worth the credit

I keep waiting and waiting for this book to get good but it is only getting worse. Both main characters are insufferable and whiny. The narratives don't sound at all like anyone actually talks to each other. and the all-too-predictable plot twist that you're hoping the entire time never actually happens does indeed occur right around chapter 24. save yourself the money and get a different book. I wouldn't even give it a star if that were an option.

page turner

I loved this book!! definitely a page turner! You would think one thing would happen, and then be mind blown that it was something else. I love how Megan Collins makes sister relationships relatable. She also doesn't make you feel confused about the characters.

Not very good

I would not recommend this book to anyone.

it is about a mother pining away over the lost love of a self entitled, rich, murderer; to the exclusion of the nurturing, growth, and development of her own children.

Enough said.

Sub-par for the genre

The story was reasonably compelling but Sylvie is an unlikeable character. There are times where she appears to lack understanding of plot points that are so obvious, her ignorance of them is totally unconvincing. There is also a very annoying and repetitive narrative tic whereby Sylvie is forever noticing from a distance that her ears are buzzing etc.

a little boring

not horrible. but I found myself pretty bored. I actually put the audible version on 1.7 times speed near the end so I could get it done a little faster. didn't want to give up on it though.
