Bill, 72, feels lonely and lost after the death of his beloved wife. He relies heavily on Sarah, his only daughter, for comfort and companionship.

Sarah, highly career-driven and a perfectionist homemaker, is struggling to keep up with all of the curve balls life is throwing her way. To makes matters worse, her husband is growing increasingly distant, leaving her with little to no support.

Emma, down-to-earth nurse and busy mum of three, has always dreamed of having a sister…but nothing could ever prepare her for the shocking results of a routine blood test.

Adam, a successful florist, was raised by a single mother and never knew his dad. As his business expands and his dreams start to fall into place, he can’t help but wonder about the father who has been absent from his life all these years.

Finally, Michelle is trying to turn her passion for cake-making into a career. But at age 46, she’s beginning to think that her chances of running a successful business, falling in love, and having children are wearing thin. And that’s not all that’s on her mind – Michelle is also searching for her birth parents, and feels like she is racing against time. Is it too late for everything?

Five characters, very different people living very different lives, yet they are connected by the very secrets that separate them. What will happen when these secrets are exposed? Only the future will tell…

Fiona Palmer’s Sisters and Brothers, a poignant tale of heartbreak, adoption, and a father’s love, grips you from the very beginning with its raw emotion and troubled, layered characters. Rare though it is to find a novel that is rich in both narrative and character development, it’s no surprise that Fiona Palmer delivers both – and more.

Not only are the characters in Sisters and Brothers masterfully crafted, the story is also beautifully layered and meticulously developed. Reading this book is like watching an intricate tapestry being woven – each sentence purposeful, moving, connecting everything together.

Sisters and Brothers is a story about people – about the secrets we keep, the desires we hide, and the dreams we leave behind. If you’re looking for a book that is both a page-turner and a tear-jerker, then don’t miss Fiona Palmer’s Sisters and Brothers.
