No two women could have been more different. No two women could have been closer…
Flora and Rose are identical twins who do not know of each other's existence. Rose has been raised by her frivolous mother with the glossy international jet set. Flora has spend her childhoold in the beauty and quiet of her father's Cornish cottage. And then, by chance, they meet.
The encounter seems heaven-sent to Rose, who longs to escape from a man she no longer desires. Flora can free her and, in taking her sister's place, her uneventful life is changed forever. She finds drama and danger – and glimpses a happiness beyond her wildest dreams.

A great summer read, one for the plane or beach.
I have started off with Under Gemini by Rosamunde Pilcher which was released in 1992 and I have no idea how or why I came to have it on tape. Rosamunde Pilcher is an author whose books I happen to have read no less than 7 of between 1990 and 1997 and just one since we left the UK in 2004. My favourite of her books which was originally published in 1987 is `The Shell Seekers' which was on the long list for The Best Love Story of the Last Fifty Years 1960 - 2010
This abridged version of Under Gemini was very easy listening, over two ironing sessions, nothing spectacular but I enjoyed listening to this tale of love, betrayal and deception. It is the story of identical twins Rose and Flora who are unaware of each others existence until they meet quite by chance in a London restaurant. The chances of this happening are so very remote that this did annoy me a little, but then this is a novel. They both lead very different lifestyles and for reasons that will be revealed to those that read or listen to this book, Rose persuades Flora to stand in for her to help her escape a man she no longer has romantic feelings for. In taking her twin sisters place Flora's life is changed for ever. A bit of a cliché but then it is as she finds happiness beyond her dreams.
Pleasant enough easy listening I certainly recommend you try her novels if you are a fan of British romantic fiction authors.
