The Twins, Paperback / softback Book

The Twins Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


Two elderly women, one Dutch and one German, meet by chance at the famous health resort of Spa.

They recognize in the other their twin sister they believed to be lost.

They begin to tell each other their life stories - the last chance to bridge a gulf of almost seventy years.

In this monumental novel, Tessa de Loo compellingly weaves the story of two twin sisters separated in childhood with that of two countries opposed in war, and depicts, in a simple yet harrowing prose the effects of nature and nurture on the individual.
