A Sister's Tears: A heartbreaking yet uplifting saga by Meg Hutchinson
Emma Lawrence has reason to fear the base cruelty of the man she must call uncle. She and her sister Rachel were taken into the Gilmore household on the death of their parents and have known nothing but unkindness at the hands of Fenton and his wife.
When Rachel is brutally killed, and Emma must dry her tears and flee if she is to escape the same fate. Emma falls in with two other orphans, and Timothy and Lily become as dear to her as her own departed sister.
But Fenton Gilmore does not give up so easily. Getting Emma back is central to his evil plans - and he will stop at nothing to make them happen.
Can Emma escape the life her uncle has planned for her and find happiness at last?
