1984 - Suffolk, England: When 17-year-old Eva goes missing at sea, everyone presumes that she drowned. Her parents' relationship is falling apart, undermined by guilt and grief. But her younger sister, Faith, refuses to consider a life without Eva; she's determined to find her sister and bring her home alive.
Close to the shore looms the shape of an island - out of bounds, mysterious, and dotted with windowless concrete huts. What nobody knows is that inside one of the huts Eva is being held captive. That she is fighting to survive - and return home.

Dymocks Rouse Hill, Sydney on The Twins"A perfect R&J summer read, a psychological thriller of sisters and a dreadful childhood incident, the details of which are drip fed to us throughout the book, building layers of complexity to the story at each revelation....Highly compulsive." The Bookseller on The Twins"The debut novel from British author Saskia Sarginson simply called The Twins, is anything but simple: it's a beautifully layered novel about childhood, the haunting nature of secrets and the unbreakable bond of twins...a compelling slow burn of a story with evocative writing.
