Description & Features+

The latest New York Times bestseller from the beloved author of Prep and American Wife, “a rich portrait of intricate relationships within and among families by one of commercial fiction’s smartest, most perceptive practitioners…[with a] powerful denouement” (Kirkus, starred review). In St. Louis, spouses Kate and Jeremy have just been woken by a series of tremors, hours south of where the strongest earthquake in U.S. history once occurred. The quake rattles Kate, but it’s nothing compared with her identical twin sister, Vi—a self-proclaimed psychic medium—who appears on the morning news to predict a more powerful earthquake in the region. Kate is mortified. More troubling, however, is her fear that Vi may be right. As the date of the predicted earthquake quickly approaches, Kate is forced to reconcile her fraught relationship with her sister, and truths about herself she’s long tried to deny. Funny, haunting, and thought-provoking, Sisterland is a beautifully written novel of the obligation we have toward others, and the responsibility we take for ourselves.
