From Amazon:
One of Sarah’s daughters died. But can she be sure which one?
A year after one of their identical twin daughters, Lydia, dies in an accident, Angus and Sarah Moorcraft move to the tiny Scottish island Angus inherited from his grandmother, hoping to put together the pieces of their shattered lives.
But when their surviving daughter, Kirstie, claims they have mistaken her identity – that she, in fact, is Lydia – their world comes crashing down once again.
As winter encroaches, Angus is forced to travel away from the island for work, Sarah is feeling isolated, and Kirstie (or is it Lydia?) is growing more disturbed. When a violent storm leaves Sarah and her daughter stranded, Sarah finds herself tortured by the past – what really happened on that fateful day one of her daughters died?

9 out of 10

I liked this book - ALOT. I did not know what was going on at times and that kept it interesting!

So Angus and Sarah have identical twins and tragically one of them dies aged 6. Lydia, it appears. Then all of a sudden, Kirstie says, 'Why do you keep calling me Kirstie, I'm Lydia!' This happens 14 months after the death of Lydia or Kirstie?!

Now Sarah doesn't know if she got her twins mixed up and its actually Kirstie who died! Angus seems to know the truth but doesn't share it with Sarah and just goes along with whatever she thinks. Amidst all that, there's a move to Scotland on an island.

What kept my interest most was the little girl, who ever she was. I didn't know which one she was myself really. Sarah seemed to be having a lot of issues, not uncommon after the death of her daughter, Angus was an alcoholic, they had no money, their relationship was strained... but I was sympathetic towards them all. The family unit was down by one and they were all trying to cope.

I found the end, fitting though, not at all unexpected but by then I had a grasp of what was going on. A great book in my opinion, one I wanted to read for some time and I'm glad I found it. Now off to something cheery as I read this just after reading The Vanishing act of Esme Lennox (very good)and I need joy in my life!
