Baratz-Logsted, Lauren. THE TWIN’S DAUGHTERNew York : Bloomsbury, 2010IL YAISBN 1599905132Lucy lives in England about 100 years ago. She has a very good life but she finds it rather boring. But that changes when a stranger knocks on the door. When Lucy opens the door, she sees a woman who looks exactly like her mother. It turns out that this is her mother’s identical twin sister! Helen Smythe is the long lost twin of her mother. They were separated at birth and grew up in very different homes. Aliese was raised in a wealthy home and Helen was raised in an orphanage. Helen is welcomed into the family and truly becomes Aliese’s double. When Lucy returns home one day to find the two women tied up, the mystery truly begins. One woman is dead. But which one? Is it Lucy’s mother – or her aunt?
