… Saskia Sarginson’s The Twins was a Richard and Judy Book Club pick and a Piatkus Debut Superlead.
We all have our secrets. Eleanor Rathmall has kept one her whole life. But when her husband dies and a stranger arrives at her door, her safe life in the idyllic English village she’s chosen as her home begins to topple.
Everyone is suspicious of this stranger, except for Eleanor. But her trust in him will put her life in danger, because nothing is as it seems; not her dead husband, the man who claims to love her, or the inscrutable outsider to whom she’s opened her home and her heart.
In a devastating love story full of intrigue and dark secrets we find that it is those who are closest to us that can sometimes pose the biggest threat of all.
