Darling Girls
Darling Girls: A Novel | Sally Hepworth
Get ready for another twisty domestic thriller from the New York Times bestselling author of THE SOULMATE. From the outside, Alicia, Jessica and Norah might seem like ordinary women you'd meet on the street any day of the week. Sure, Jessica has a little OCD and Norah has some anger issues. And Alicia has low self-esteem that manifests itself in surprising ways. But these three have a bond that no one can fully understand. It's a bond that takes them back decades, to when they were girls, and they lived on a farm with a foster mother named Miss Fairchild. Miss Fairchild had rules. Miss Fairchild could be unpredictable. And Miss Fairchild was never, ever to be crossed. In a moment of desperation, the three broke away from Miss Fairchild, and they thought they were free. But the reach of someone with such power is long, and even though they never saw her again, she was always somewhere in the shadows of their minds. When bones are discovered buried under the farmhouse of their childhood, they are called in by the police to tell what they know. Against their will, they are brought back to the past, and to Miss Fairchild herself. DARLING GIRLS asks the questions: what are we capable of when in a desperate place? How much can we hide the demons inside us? And can the past ever truly be buried?

This book is about three foster girls, Jessica, Norah, and Alicia who are all raised by the same foster mother, Holly Fairchild, and that foster mom is cruel and punishes them. The girls form a bond and refer to themselves as “sisters.”

Many years later, a detective calls them to tell the girls that bones have been found underneath the house they were raised in. They come back to be questioned by the police. Read the book to find out more.

I always assumed Sally Hepworth wasn‘t an author for me (based on the covers, I guess?), but I actually really enjoyed this. Now I‘ll have to give her backlist a try. #BOTM

BarbaraBB I have preordered this one, I was so intrigued by the blurb! It will be published in Europe next month! 1w

DNF. This is NOT a review per se other than to say after 47% in, this book was not holding my attention and felt way too slow. I found myself putting it down way too often for another book (and I‘m a one-book-at-a-time person). Goodreads has it at a 4.2 so l guess I‘m in the #unpopularopinion boat.
I‘m sure that it picked up at 48% 😂😂, but I gave up.

WOW... Just WOW! This is Ms Hepworth's best book yet and she writes wonderful books. This one will blow your mind. A MUST READ for thriller lovers.

We start out in a Psychiatrist's office. Someone is telling him about things that happened in their life. Throughout this story you hear more and more about this sad life. About the abuse she endured. About the horrendous things that were done to her.

Ms. Hepworth‘s best yet!!

Surprise after surprise - twist after twist - with the ending one being the best.

You won‘t want to put the book down even though the chapters about their time in foster care are unsettling and upsetting.

Thank you to the publisher for a copy of this book. All opinions are my own.

I flew through this one! So good! As are all Sally Hepworth‘s books. The story is of three women who met in an awful foster care situation but who have bonded as sisters. Human remains are found underneath their former foster home and the police contact them. Very good enthralling read.

This was a fun twisty thriller/mystery that takes place in foster care. You can‘t stop. I listened to this in one sitting.

Just what I needed, a fantastic distraction.

Three young women return to the town where they spent time in foster care at the behest of the local constabulary. A dead body has been found under the house they were fostered in.

What horrible secrets, past & present, are ready to be unearthed?

Popcorn ♥️

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2

• 368 pages • first pub 2024 • Australia • fiction • thriller • dark • emotional • 3.5 Stars

“Darling Girls” by Sally Hepworth is a gripping novel that weaves together sisterhood, secrets, love, and murder. The story revolves around three women—Jessica, Norah, and Alicia—who were rescued from family tragedies as young girls and raised by their foster mother, Miss Fairchild. ⬇️

suvata Under her care, they grew up on an idyllic farming estate, but their childhood wasn‘t the fairy tale it seemed. Miss Fairchild had rules, was unpredictable, and was never to be crossed. When a body is discovered under their childhood home, the sisters find themselves in the spotlight as key witnesses—or perhaps prime suspects. 2mo

My January #bookspin was Sally Hepworth‘s latest novel due to be published in April 2024. I am a huge fan of hers but this one is just a meh for me. Happy to have it off my never ending NetGalley ARC list. @TheAromaofBooks

The story follows 3 sisters as they are trying to navigate life after growing up in the foster care system and what unravels after they are called back to their old town after a body is discovered underneath their foster home.

This book kept me hooked so much that I forgot about all my other reads. The ending alone made this book a 5-star for me.

Jessica, Norah and Alicia are as close as ever as adults after growing up in foster care together. Each one struggles to navigate their past traumas, which are stirred up when something is found at their former foster home, forcing their return there. I thought this was great, with some plot twists I wasn‘t expecting. It‘s darker than her prior books, so be aware of child abuse content. Coming next April.
