When Elspeth Noblin dies, she leaves everything to the 20-year-old American twin daughters of her own long-estranged twin, Edie. Valentina and Julia, as enmeshed as Elspeth and Edie once were, move into Elspeth’s London flat and through a series of developing relationships a crisis develops that could pull the twins apart.
I honestly did not know what this book was about when I picked it up, I only chose it because I love Niffeneger’s writing style. This book did not disappoint. It was filled to the brim with such excellent details and unusual characters all of which were spun together into a wonderful gothic tale. If you enjoyed any of Niffeneger’s other books you should definitely check this one out.
