Morgan Jones’ heart-stopping thriller, The Good Sister, sees one father go further than he ever knew possible, to rescue a daughter who doesn’t want to be saved.
A missing daughter. A desperate father. A journey to save them both.
Sofia Mounir’s world is not her own. Her mother is sick, her father broken, the London they live in is dying of greed and self-obsession.
So she flees, to Raqqa: heart of the caliphate, foundation stone of a just world that she will help to build. From violence and sacrifice will grow something beautiful, and she will be part of it. Her faith will be equal to everything asked of her.
Until it isn’t. Until it becomes clear that not all her new brothers’ and sisters’ intentions are as pure as her own. Until even her faith becomes a liability.
Where do you turn, when the future you’ve longed for wants you dead?
Unnerving, raw, and impactful.
The Good Sister is an action-packed, harrowing, pensive tale that delves into the unconditional love of a father for his daughter and the heart-wrenching and horrifying struggle of a nation to live, believe and find peace in a landscape rife with oppression, greed, and violence.
The prose is edgy and taut. The characters are complex, tormented, and driven. And the plot told from two different points of view, is a compelling, well-crafted tale about family, faith, conviction, greed, corruption, extremism, instability, fear, danger, abuse, cruelty, and murder.
Overall, The Good Sister is a fast-paced, thought-provoking, haunting novel with an authentic feel that I can’t honestly tell you I won’t soon forget.
