"Caroline Bond has a gift for weaving heart-rending tales of impossible decisions" Amanda Brooke
To lose your family is heart-breaking.
To be forgotten by them is unforgivable.
Cassie and Erin are sisters. They are close - in age, looks and personality - but there is one crucial difference: Cassie is adopted.
At seventeen, Cassie sets out to find her birth mother. She is hungry for the truth, but she discovers her adoption was far more complicated than even she could have imagined. In uncovering her past identity Cassie learns her adoptive parents have kept a terrible secret from her her whole life, which now threatens to destroy everything she has ever held dear.
A heart-rending, profoundly moving novel about protecting the ones you love from the secrets that will hurt them most, perfect for fans of Jodi Picoult and Jojo Moyes.

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 *
A deftly written novel [and] a moving exploration of love between sisters and the tangled, often complex emotions that exist in families. * Madeleine Reiss *
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 *
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 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. * Carol Mason on THE SECOND CHILD *
