Two sisters, one life-changing journey...There are some currents in the relationship between sisters that run so dark and so deep, it's better for the people swimming on the surface never to know what's beneath . . .
Katie's carefully structured world is shattered by the news that her headstrong younger sister, Mia, has been found dead in Bali - and the police claim it was suicide. With only the entries of Mia's travel journal as her guide, Katie retraces the last few months of her sister's life, and - page by page, country by country - begins to uncover the mystery surrounding her death.
What she discovers changes everything. But will her search for the truth push their sisterly bond - and Katie - to breaking point?
The Sea Sisters is a compelling story of the enduring connection between sisters.

This is a really well constructed book and an absorbing and well-told story. We hear the stories of Mia and Katie's journeys in alternate chapters - not just their physical journey, but their growing understanding of each other, and some of the history of their relationship and the reasons for their being as they are. The journey's an emotional one, and I was totally absorbed by it - a wonderful examination of the bonds, fractures and emotions between sisters. As the story emerges, different family dynamics emerge around a story of brothers. The journal Katie follows is almost a character in its own right - a wonderful device for shaping the story. The settings are vividly described - you feel them as well as see them - from Cornwall to California, Maui, Australia and Bali.
An easy read in some ways, a difficult one in others, this is a book that grabs you by the heart - very emotional, it moves you to tears at times, and twists and turns in a way that keeps you thoroughly hooked. An incredibly accomplished first novel, and I'm looking forward already to Lucy Clarke's next one.
