Lucy's mother quickly resolves to give her less fortunate sister the kind of life she has never known. And the transformation in Aunt Helen is indeed remarkable. But when Helen begins to imitate her sister in every way, even Lucy isn't sure at times which twin is which. Can Helen really be trusted, or does her sweet face mask a chilling agenda?Filled with shocking twists and turns, THE TWIN'S DAUGHTER is an engrossing gothic novel of betrayal, jealousy, and treacherous secrets that will keep you guessing to the very end.

Profile Picture

In The Twin's Daughter, by Lauren Baratz-Logsted, Lucy Sexton lives a very comfortable life with her attractive parents. Very surprisingly, her mother, Aliese, one day has a visitor, a woman who claims to be her sister and Lucy's aunt. She does, in fact, very much resemble Lucy's mother. Aunt Helen, as she becomes known to Lucy, moves into the house and begins to be educated, as she had previously been quite poor. Her skills progress remarkably, until she cannot be easily distinguished from her twin. Lucy has a few surprises when she mistakes one twin for the other.
