Genre: Historical Fiction
Rating: 5/5 stars
My Review: I really enjoyed this short story. It is only 90 pages long (paperback version), so it doesn’t take long to read. I think the writing was good (though I’m no expert on it ;)), and it was easy to understand what was going on. I liked how it showed that even twins have different personalities, because I haven’t read many books that are like that. My favorite part was when (SPOILER ALERT!) Lady Luckley went to see George when he was sick.
All in all, this was a great book, and I would highly recommend it.
