“The Other Daughter” Review

Admittedly, I looked at the novel, The Other Daughter, by Lauren Willig, several times before deciding to give it a try.  A story about  a woman who discovers that she is the illegitimate daughter of an Earl, seemed too predictable, however; nothing about this tale is predictable, and I must confess that once I got deep into the story, I was unable to stop listening until the end. 23014679

The narrated version (voice of Nicola Barber) is particularly well done, and helped a mind-fogged reader, such as myself,  follow along easily. 
The larger question posed by the novel is: Who are we really?   Rachel Woodley takes on many roles and personas before discovering her essential truth, a search that certainly had resonance for me.

The plot twists, inviting the reader to fantasize along with the main character, and revealing a glimpse at life “on the other side of the fence”.

I’ll be looking for another book by this author.

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.
