$33.00 Inc GST

A modern-day Wuthering Heights from the author of international bestseller The Eighth Life.

Two families, one devastating secret, and an epic story of forbidden love.

Eight years have passed since Stella last saw Ivo, but when he returns, the reunion of their unconventional family will change the course of her ordinary life. As children, Stella and Ivo grew close as their parents embarked on an affair that would shatter both families. Later, as teenagers, their own relationship would be the cause of further scandal. Now, as adults, they set out on an odyssey to uncover the truth about another family’s past, and to understand their own.

My Soul Twin is an intense love story about forbidden desire, the ties that bind us, and whether we can ever truly forget what we leave behind.

‘My Soul Twin is full of life and energy, authentic and to the point.’
-Welt online

‘A love affair like a suicide commando. A novel like a gathering place for the world’s tears.’

Praise for The Eighth Life-

‘Something rather extraordinary happened. The world fell away and I fell, wholly, happily, into the book … My breath caught in my throat, tears nestled in my lashes … devastatingly brilliant.’
-Wendell Steavenson, The New York Times Book Review
