The Sapphire Cove

Sophie Anderson

A mother’s dark secret. Two sisters torn apart forever…

Flora has fled from her broken marriage to take care of her sick mother, in an isolated farmhouse with ice on its windows. But as she draws heavy curtains and lights fires, she makes a shocking discovery. Hidden at the bottom of a drawer lies a crumpled photo of a smiling baby girl she doesn’t recognise. And when her mother reveals the baby is the sister Flora never knew she had, her world is turned upside down.

Miles away, on a tropical island of sapphire coves, Romy is fighting for her life. The only way she can be saved is by a transplant from a family member. But Romy has no family… as far as she knows.

As Flora reels from her mother’s devastating revelation and discovers a past full of secrets, she is determined to find answers. But will she find her sister in time to save her life? And what is the terrible truth that forced the two little girls apart in the first place?

A heartbreaking and emotional read about love, letting go and a family torn apart in the saddest of circumstances. Fans of Jodi Picoult, Lucinda Riley and Jojo Moyes will never forget The Sapphire Cove.
