Publisher's Summary

You made a promise to your sister. It could destroy your daughter.
The daughter
Fifteen-year-old Rosie lies in hospital fighting for her life. She’s trying to tell her mother what happened to her, but she can’t speak the words out loud.
The mother
Toni is a doting and over-protective mother, terrified for her daughter’s life. Having lost her husband in a tragic accident, Toni has dedicated her life to keeping Rosie safe from harm. She needs to know what secrets Rosie has been keeping and how she ended up in a hospital bed - but Toni has a secret of her own....
The pact
Thirty years ago, Toni and her sister, Bridget, made each other a promise: never to speak of their childhood; to protect each other without asking for help from others, no matter what....
But in order to save Rosie, Toni may have to break her lifelong promise to her sister...and open doors to her past she hoped would remain closed forever.
The Pact is a chilling psychological thriller about the lies we will tell to save our children. Perfect for fans of Gone Girl, Apple Tree Yard, and The Sister.

I don’t speak teenager

I think Tamsin Kennard is a really good narrator, but I couldn’t get past the teenage inflections, millennial-isms and otherwise maybe too authentic voice of Rosie. The plot seemed to go nowhere fast. I needed more to happen sooner. I couldn’t connect with the characters. This book was only so-so for me. I wouldn’t choose it again.

keep you on the edge of your seat.

it's a little slow to start but when it finally grabs u, you don't want to stop. awesome story about sisters and a daughter who take care of each other and what they all have gone thru and what they still face. the narration by Tamsin Kennard is very good. I definitely enjoyed this story.

Powerful and compelling

As a mother of a teenage girl, this story struck a terrifying chord with me. S E Lynes creates such believable characters in Rosey, Toni and Bridget, I lived their story with them. The Pact has a truly compelling, complex plot with shocking twists, which meant I could barely force myself to stop listening. This is a fantastic book. Highly recommended!
