The Richard and Judy Bestseller.

'Outstandingly good. Part-thriller, part-love story, I guarantee you will not be able to put it down' Sun

They were identical in every way
Until the unthinkable tore them apart

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...

***Pre-order Saskia Sarginson's heart-rending new novel, The Bench, now - a tragic love story spanning three decades***

*I received a free ARC of The Twins from Hachette Book Group via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review*

A raw and honest story about growing up and dealing with the consequences of bad teen-age choices - The Twins is written in beautiful prose, from dual points of views of the twins Viola and Issy.
