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.... A stunningly, unforgettable debut from a remarkable new talent.
This story promised so much but did not deliver. It was very slow to start to unfold then two thirds of the way through came to life, reaffirming my decision to stick with it, only to really disappoint at the end. Having listened to it all I don't feel able to return it, but it is one of the most disappointing books I have listened to, and that's from a library of over 60 books. Full credit to the narrators, they were excellent but the story just did not flow properly

If you like description then you will love this. Beautiful childhood memories that took me back, and issues I can relate to having suffered with an issue covered, it was done well, rushed at the end, but good
