Caroline Bond has done it again. Haunting and nuanced, this is the story of a split second between normality and appalling tragedy, and of what comes next. Bond describes the most desperate moments with empathy and insight. I was utterly bound up in this story, right to the last line.
Charity Norman

Caroline Bond has a gift for weaving heart-rending tales of impossible decisions and The Forgotten Sisteris no exception. A beautifully written story that will stay with me for quite some time. Would I have made the same choices?
Amanda Brooke on The Forgotten Sister

Accomplished and deeply affecting, The Forgotten Sister examines how perilous secrets can be in families, and yet how some bonds are almost impossible to break. It really resonated with me.
Carol Mason on The Forgotten Sister

A deftly written novel [and] a moving exploration of love between sisters and the tangled, often complex emotions that exist in families.
Madeleine Reiss on The Forgotten Sister

Caroline Bond takes a complex situation and has written a thoughtful, wrenching and, at times, tear-jerking novel.
Elizabeth Buchan on The Second Child

I stayed up long into the night to finish The Second Child... a carefully crafted and utterly compelling tale of lost opportunity and impossible choices.
Amanda Brooke on The Second Child

I was so invested in every word of this novel. An unthinkable situation, but highly believable, this story is spellbinding, real, and brilliantly written. I felt for every character. It mines the depth of every possible human emotion. Caroline Bond will go far.
