Sharon Bairden: Sins Of The Father

I’m absolutely delighted to be sharing my review of Sins Of The Father today as part of the blog tour. It’s written with thanks to Sharon Bairden and Meggy Roussel at Red Dog Press for inviting me on the tour and for my copy of the book.


Lucas Findlay thinks he has struck gold when he marries Rebecca, but she married him for one reason only – to destroy him.

When her past comes back to haunt her, Rebecca begins to disconnect from herself and the world around her. As secrets are unearthed, she begins to fear for her sanity… and her life.

With her world unravelling around her, Rebecca clings to her determination to make Lucas pay, whatever the cost.
But someone must pay for the sins of the father…

A chilling page-turner from a sharp new Scottish voice.


I was struggling to find my reading mojo when I picked up this book, but worry no more! I am in awe of Bairden’s writing and I am astonished that Sins Of The Father is her debut novel. She has a brilliant way of getting inside her characters’ heads and her writing is incredibly visceral. I was immediately drawn into the lives of these characters, feeling the whole range of emotions that this entailed.

Sins Of The Father is not for the faint hearted. Bairden explores several themes in the novel, which inevitably takes the reader into some dark situations. I won’t give examples to avoid spoilers, but it is clear that Bairden is very knowledgeable about these issues and it shows in the depth it gives to her characters’ stories.

As we learn more about these characters, there are lots of twists that make reading Sins Of The Father, particularly the second half, very tense. Each of the characters have a dark secret and I was fascinated to find out what they were and how they would be revealed. Bairden has plotted this novel really well to make sure it all comes together well.

Sins Of The Father is available from Amazon.
