The Other Twin

By Lesley Hayes

Literary fiction | Paperback, eBook


"Trying to define love was like chasing a ball of mercury with your finger: as soon as you thought you’d touched upon its truth, it skittered off again and divided itself into multiple tiny versions of itself.” Since childhood, Verity has been haunted by the dream of meeting her twin soul. Is such a thing even possible? She thinks she might have found him in Ned, but is he all that he seems? No one and nothing in this novel is as straightforward as it first appears, including Verity. Sometimes it takes other people to help us discover who we truly are, and the lengths we will go to when pushed. A psychological mystery with the notion of true love at its heart, The Other Twin explores the noxious legacy of suspicion, hatred, revenge, and duplicity – and asks of the reader: just who can you trust?



Lesley Hayes lives in Oxford, UK, and before becoming a psychotherapist she was regularly published in literary and women's magazines, and for two years had a weekly slot on BBC Radio Oxford reading her short stories. Her long and successful career as a psychotherapist over the ensuing years took her away from fiction writing, but was a fork in the road she never once regretted, and she used many of same creative skills and insights. During the past seven years she has given in gracefully to the compelling urge to write fiction again, and has so far published five novels: 'The Drowned Phoenician Sailor', 'A Field Beyond Time', 'Round Robin', 'Dangerous People' and 'The Other Twin'. All are available on kindle and in paperback. Additionally, four collections of short stories have been published on kindle: 'Oxford Marmalade', 'The Oscar Dossier', 'Without a Safety Net', and the aptly named 'Not Like Other People.' 'Through a Glass Darkly' is a compilation of her short stories published in paperback. As you might expect, now that the genie has once again escaped from the bottle, more will soon follow.
