Special Launch Feature – Judith Barrow

Please join me in congratulating family saga novelist, Judith Barrow, on her latest novel, Sisters published today.


Judith Barrow

Sisters is based around an accident and a lie that tears apart the lives of two young sisters. The consequences leads them to exist in completely different communities and social structures. The underlying theme throughout the story is the uncertainty of whether familial love and duty can prevail over resentment and hatred. And what it might take for good to overcome the evil that lies hidden behind closed doors.

The initial inciting incident in Sisters is taken from a memory that has stayed with me from childhood. Something that has had long-term consequences and has completely changed the lives of all the members of it that family on so many levels.


An accident and a terrible lie tear a family apart. When sixteen-year-old Angie blames her younger sister for their brother’s death, she changes their lives forever. Lisa is sent away, Angie spirals into self-destruction and they don’t speak for thirteen years. Returning in 1983 for their mother’s funeral, Lisa quickly realises her sister is trapped in a dangerous marriage. What does Lisa owe to the family that betrayed her? And if she tries to help, will she make things more dangerous for them all?
