Oh, Sister

Oh, Sister

The powerful new novel from the author of Another Life


Brought to you by Penguin.

Isobel and Jen have spent their entire lives following the rules - of their marriages, and their religion.

But when Isobel's husband leaves her, and Jen goes through unimaginable trauma, the religion turns its back.

Zelda has never done what's expected of her. Living on the outskirts of the community that she, Jen and Isobel were raised in, she's trying to find herself outside of the confines of the world she left behind.

As the lives of these women become entangled, they each face an uncertain future.

Will they find the courage to move forwards? Or will a lifetime of expectation prove too hard to escape...

'An astounding debut about sibling grief, religion and sliding doors love' PANDORA SYKES
'Deep, rich, thoughtful' Gillian McAllister
'This beautiful tale of love, loss and sacrifice will break your heart...With echoes of David Nicholls' One Day and Sally Rooney's novels, it perfectly captures the agony of falling in love and the razor-sharp reality of pain and loss' DAILY MAIL
