A well written "debut" romantic novel. Twins Moira and Maeve Leahy are very close, lives intertwined, their own language as children, identical in everyway. But something happens (and that is the mystery)and one twin dies and the other twin goes on with her life, but not happily.

This is a story about the power of love, of forgetting what can't be forgotten, of forgiving what can't be forgiven, and of loving when loving does not seem likely.

Grown-up Maeve Leahy attends an auction and discovers a keris, a japanese dagger, that reminds her of her twin and the games they played as children.

Ms Walsh takes us back and forth in time, and we see the twins' lives unfold as they mature from children to young adults. Haunting dreams and foreboding events will keep you turning the pages long after you should have turned off the light!
