Her Fearful Symmetry – Audrey Niffeneger
Twins girls from America move into an apartment in London, next to Highgate Cemetery in London. They inherit this apartment from their aunt, their mother’s twin sister whom they have never met. Their aunt and mother have not spoken in 21 years and no one knows why.
The girls discover that their aunt is a ghost in the apartment. The Aunt has found a way of communicating with the girls and her partner that she left behind.
They start a journey of self discovery – who they are without each other.
That is the book in a nutshell. I thought it was fantastic. Loved the twists and how she manages to describe the ghost as a ball of energy and how it changes and takes shape.
This is one of those books I can see myself rereading in a few years time!
