Review

Everybody has an opinion about twins and the bond between them. Well, this novel has two sets of twins and will make you curious to know more. The competition, the struggle for power but also the loyalty between them are extraordinary . . . This novel reads like a modern fairy tale, I loved it (Pages & Pages, Sydney)

Beautifully written with characters you'll learn to love (Dymocks Rouse Hill, Sydney)

Sarginson's debut is a timeless and riveting piece that echoes the mystique and beauty of the lush, English countryside . . . bewitching (RT Book Reviews)

The haunting tale is skilfully infused with trauma and tragedy - and sinister suspense. [A] stirring debut (Independant.ie)

Book Description

A deeply moving, gripping read, this is a novel about the secrets we all carry with us, and the bonds between twins that can never be broken. It is an astonishing debut.

From the Back Cover

Isolte and Viola are twins. Inseparable as children, they've grown into very different adults: Isolte, a successful features writer for a fashion magazine with a photographer boyfriend and a flat in London, and Viola, desperately unhappy and struggling with a lifelong eating disorder.

What happened all those years ago to set the twins on such different paths to adulthood? As both women start to unravel the escalating tragedies of a half-remembered summer, terrifying secrets from the past come rushing back -- and threaten to overwhelm their adult lives . . .

A stunningly, unforgettable debut from a remarkable new talent.
