Recommended to Julie by: Books on the Nightstand podcast
Read from April 03 to 16, 2012

I recently started listening to the Books on the Nightstand podcast, and I've been going through the back catalog of episodes, in addition to listening to current ones. Michael Kindness talked about this book in one of the early episodes in 2008. It sounded intriguing to me, so I requested it from the library. What a fascinating book! It is the story of twins, separated shortly after birth, who meet for the first time when in their early thirties. The best part of this book is that they both alternately tell the story of their meeting, their feelings about each other, and their efforts to find out more about their biological mother. Both are excellent writers, and the story was compelling, especially toward the end, when I had trouble putting it down.
