Editorial Reviews


Faultlines is an in-depth portrayal of how one moment—and one mystery—can crack a family open. These compelling characters will stay with you long after the final reveal. Sissel’s fans will not be disappointed.” —Catherine McKenzie, bestselling author of Hidden and Fractured

“This is that rare sort of book that grabs you from the very first line and refuses to let go. Beautifully written, intricately plotted, and perfectly executed, Faultlines is an intimate look at the unraveling of a family after a tragic accident. Sissel weaves a clever web of emotional fallout as she alternates seamlessly between two storylines that converge in a devastating way. An atmospheric, emotional, suspenseful journey that will stay with you for a long time after you’ve finished the last page.” —Kristin Harmel, international bestselling author of The Sweetness of Forgetting

“In Faultlines, Barbara Taylor Sissel brilliantly weaves a compelling, suspenseful, and emotional family drama...Through a multitude of twists and turns, each character is faced with difficult decisions that fracture family bonds while wondering who they can trust, let alone whether or not they can recover from the tragedy. As the parent of a teenager, I immediately connected with the story and the characters, and was hooked from page one. Ms. Sissel is a masterful storyteller when it comes to suspense and an exceptional writer. It’s a definite page-turner!” —Kerry Lonsdale, bestselling author of Everything We Keep

Fautlines is a gripping tale of secrets and obsessions in which nothing is quite as it seems. After tragedy and accusations of blame rip a family apart, Barbara Sissel masterfully unravels the shocking truth.” —Barbara Claypole White, bestselling author of The Perfect Son

“I was completely sucked into Faultines. Told with great skill and compassion, Faultlines had me feeling for so many of its flawed but very human characters, each of them struggling toward the grace that can only come of forgiveness. My favorite of Sissel’s many fine books, Faultlines kept me reading long past midnight...and the powerful, yet hopeful, resolution will stay with me for a long time.” —Colleen Thompson, author of The Off Season and Fatal Error

About the Author

Barbara Taylor Sissel writes issue-driven women’s fiction that is threaded with elements of suspense and defined by its particular emphasis on how crime affects families. She is the author of six previous novels: The Last Innocent Hour, The Ninth Step, The Volunteer, Evidence of Life, Safekeeping, and Crooked Little Lies.

Born in Honolulu, Hawaii, Barbara was raised in various locations across the Midwest and once lived on the grounds of a first-offender prison facility, where she interacted with the inmates, their families, and the people who worked with them. The experience made a profound impression on her and provided her with a unique insight into the circumstances of the crimes that were committed, and the often-surprising ways the justice system moved to deal with them.

An avid gardener, Barbara has two sons and lives on a farm in the Texas Hill Country, outside Austin.
