`There's no escaping this one,' he says, but not to me. He says it to the ground and the sky and the thin arms of the waiting trees, but not to me. A film-maker by profession, Catherine has the perfect family: a supportive husband and a bright ten-year-old daughter. But Catherine's beloved father is deteriorating. As he slips away into dementia, so too does a guilty truth they share: they both know what happened to Devin, Catherine's sister, a shadow in a beautiful skin. Catherine's adult success has come at a price. Now she has to come to terms with the silences in her past. Sister Moon is a story of love and growing up, of exclusion and abuse. Moving, and emotionally charged, Kirsten Miller's second novel renders the insidious consequences of family secrets.
