My Review:

I received a complimentary copy of this book.

Twins Sarah and Susan were born to a fifteen year old unwed mother, one who has provided for them, albeit, pitifully, by living with a series of “uncles.”  The girls grew up street savvy, learning to steal, refusing to attend school, and generally doing whatever they wanted.  By the time they were thirteen, they were smoking, drinking, playing around with drugs, and about to learn about sex.  Through it all, they were like two halves of one person, even likening themselves to feral wolf cubs.

For the first time in their lives, there is conflict between them, as Sarah finds herself falling in love with Jonny, Susan’s boyfriend.  Sarah learns that Jonny believes them to be sixteen years old, not just turned thirteen.  When Sarah tells Jonny the truth, he is horrified, and breaks off the relationship, and leaves to pursue a career.  Eventually Sarah and Susan reconcile, and move to London to see what life holds for them.  Unfortunately, life is not kind.  They become helplessly involved in prostitution and drug addiction, seemingly with no way out.  When Sarah encounters Jonny again, he’s determined to rescue them from the life they’re trapped in.  His loving care helps Sarah first, then they attempt to rescue Susan, but are not successful.

Three decades later, Jonny and Sarah have a grown daughter, a successful business, and a lovely home.  Then, out of the blue, Susan shows up at their door.  Sarah has no desire to reconnect with her sister, and has tried to forget their horrible life in London.  Her daughter, Lucy, who was never made aware of Susan’s existence, is more than eager to become acquainted.  Jonny, also, urges Sarah to give Susan a chance.

But Susan’s motives are deeper and darker.  Jonny was hers first, and he should be her husband.  Lucy should be her daughter.  And their home and business should be hers.  Susan inveigles her way into every facet of their lives, much to Sarah’s dismay.  Soon, long kept secrets will be revealed, and Susan’s deadly plot comes to fruition.

THE TWINS is a genuine page turner, with dark twists and turns.  Just when I was sure I knew where the story was headed, another curve was thrown my way.  Stories of twins and their relationships with each other have always fascinated me.  Is there really one good and one evil twin?  As it’s a trigger for many, I do want to mention that there is a rape of a young girl in this book.  Though THE TWINS is disturbing, I couldn’t put it down until I read the final shocking chapter.    ~Rose
