"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?"--… (lisätietoja)

Actually a decent psychological mystery, but the amount of child abuse just knocks it down for me. The foster system is so broken, children need rights. ( )

This was a great book and didn't see the ending. I did just have to refresh my memory, but after reading a few reviews, it all came back! This is a great 4-star thriller about 3 girls who grew up in a foster home. I listened to this on audio and the beginning chapters I had to focus to make sure I knew who was who for characters. But it was easy to keep track of. And you hate their foster mom very much as it goes on. Very frustrating to hear how they were being treated despite all of them being pretty good children. And then the foster mom gets more erratic and more erratic. And I knew early on it was her that the psychologist was talking to as a kid. But then when the story came out that she had a baby that her mother took from her...and come to find out, it was her mother's baby that she took from them. Mind blown! Great and surprising twist at the end! Maybe this is 4.25 stars because it's better than your average thriller, but it wasn't life altering and probably won't remember it in a few more weeks. But if I saw this book at a booksale I would buy it! ( )

Three foster children bond when they are fostered and raised by Miss Fairchild. The girls are told are how lucky they are to have been rescued from bad home situations. But only they know the truth about Miss Fairchild, and no one believes them. Finally, they break away from Miss Fairchild, but she is never far from their minds even when they are adults. The past inevitably catches up with them when a body is discovered under home they lived in as children. This well written thriller builds suspense with each chapter, and the shocking end will leave you breathless. ( )

Excellent book about 3 sisters in a foster home. Lovely twists and great ending. Good book. ( )

This was a twisty mystery! I like that every time I thought I had it all figured out, Sally Hepworth would prove me wrong and I would be forced to pivot my way of thinking. I look forward to reading more of Sally's work in the future as this was a thoroughly enjoyable listen.

Jessica Clarke did a great job narrating this novel and I will be looking for more of Jessica's work as well. ( )
