Another book that came highly recommended by LT members. The book follows the main character who is asked to write a biography of Vida Winter, one of the worlds most loved writers who always told stories about her life, never the truth.
During the story the truth is slowly unraveled from the story, which is filled with ghosts, tragedy, twins and fire. Near the end of the book the truth is revealed, not entirely unexpected. The writing was very good, and I found that I could not put the book down. Four out of five stars.
