The Twins

Saskia Sarginson

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...


“Isolte and Viola are twins; inseparable as children, their adult lives have diverged dramatically. Isolte is a successful fashion writer with a boyfriend and London flat. Viola has a serious eating disorder and is desperately unhappy. What happened one summer to affect their lives so deeply? What secrets do they carry? A gripping and complex novel.”
