"Waiting On" Wednesday

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

So a book that I'm anticipating is:

The Twin's Daughter by Lauren Baratz-Logsted

Pages (Hardcover): 400 pages
Publisher: Bloomsbury USA Children's Books
Release Date: August 31, 2010

Summary: Lucy Sexton is stunned when a disheveled woman appears at the door one day…a woman who bears an uncanny resemblance to Lucy's own beautiful mother. It turns out the two women are identical twins, separated at birth, and raised in dramatically different circumstances. 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.

My thoughts: The more I hear about this book, the more I want it. I kind of have a feeling that Aunt Helen will try to take over, but I think there is something so much more with this book and the cover...the cover is just brilliant!


  1. I have the same reaction to this book---the more I read about the synopsis, the more I want to read it! The cover doesn't really pull me in, but the story sounds amazing!

  2. Yes, this one's on my wishlist too and sounds fabulous! I love novels with a Gothic feel :)

  3. LOVE the cover. This one sounds fantastic; thanks for pointing it out!

  4. This looks very interesting. Great pick!

  5. Ah yes, the cover definitely hints at something more. This is the first time that I've seen this book, I'll definitely be on the lookout for it. August 31st may just bankrupt me :)

  6. I agree, I've seen this book a few times now and I'm intrigued! I love the cover as well. Quite simple, but it works.
