The Other Daughter: A Novel
The title of this book tells very little of what the story holds. With a book like this, however, it could have no title at all, and I would still read it again and again. Rachel Woodley leads a simple life. She grew up with her loving mother by her side after her father’s sudden death. They didn’t have much, but they made the most of what they did have. When Rachel is called home by a telegram, her life changes forever. As the young woman uncovers hidden secrets from her past, she questions all that she is and whom she can trust.
Lauren Willig’s The Other Daughter is very much a story about loss and finding oneself. There is humor, adventure, and scandal along the way- but in the end, Rachel gets answers, whether she likes them or not. This story has a definitive snowball effect; it starts slow, yet steady, and then continues into something greater that has the reader glued to the book, hanging onto every word. The diverse characteristics of each person in this story keeps the story even more exciting and unpredictable. I would recommend this book to anyone who can enjoy a book with a heavily detailed beginning, and an action packed middle and ending. This is a story that readers young and old would both enjoy!
