If you liked Blood Orange you will love this!
From the moment they are born, twins Susan and Sarah are inseparable. Through good and bad, the girls will always be together…forever.
Until they meet Jonny.
Older, charming and handsome, Jonny offers the girls the much-needed love and attention they crave. But he can only choose one and for the first time in their lives the girls find themselves split apart – the invisible thread that binds them severed.
Set-free from her twin, Sarah builds a new life for herself, marries, has a daughter. But Susan’s life spirals further and further out of control.
And now Susan is back. And she’s determined to reclaim everything she feels Sarah has taken from her.
Her home, her husband…her life?
First up I want to say that there are some hard hitting topics covered in The Twins that may be a trigger for some, including rape of a child, violence and drug abuse among others. It can be confronting, but in saying that, J.S. Lark does handle these in a very sensitive manner. Ok with that said, let me get on with the review.
Twins have always been a fascination to me, so when I was offered the chance to read and review this book, I jumped at it. J.S. Lark has crafted a very thrilling and intriguing tale that explores the once inseparable relationship between identical twins Sarah and Susan and how the choice of one man, fractures that relationship.
The characters of Sarah and Susan have been very well created and are each brought to life vividly. We get an in-depth view of their childhood and how those events shaped them into the woman they have become in the present. They did not have an easy life and through this, has you feeling a whole range of emotions towards them.
The Twins is a very complex and compelling tale and does require a lot of concentration. The book moves through two different timelines and switches from the perspective of the two women, but it is not immediately clear where it has gone to or from who’s perspective up front, which does cause some confusion, but also keeps you as the reader on your toes.
If you love a story that completely messes with your head, then The Twins is definitely for you. It has been very well written, fraught with so much tension and suspense with plenty of twists and turns, that all leads to a jaw dropping outcome. Well played J.S. Lark, very well played indeed!
