A Sister’s Promise

A Sister’s Promise

Author(s): Renita D'Silva

Location(s): Udupi, London

Genre(s): Fiction

Era(s): Modern



Two sisters. Bound by blood. Torn apart by love.

My sister – the glue that held our family together and the gatekeeper to the memories of our shared childhood.

The girl I made a pact with – to protect each other for life.

The woman who destroyed my family, my future.

And the only one who can save my daughter.

Set against the dramatic backdrop of India, A Sister’s Promise is a powerful, emotional tale of family secrets, love and the ties that bind sisters together.

A Sister’s Promise alternates between London and fictional villages based on Hoode and Malpe (the author)
