Wow--this is quite a thrill ride!  I could tell that neither sister was telling the whole story so the fun was how it all unfolds. The character of Fern is a blend of quirk and sensory processing issues.  And the sister dynamics really mold Fern's understanding of how she fits in the world.  So what could have been a stereotypical trope has a few more layers.  And I loved Fern's love stories.  

From the publisher:
There's only been one time that Rose couldn't stop me from doing the wrong thing and that was a mistake that will haunt me for the rest of my life.

Fern Castle works in her local library. She has dinner with her twin sister Rose three nights a week. And she avoids crowds, bright lights and loud noises as much as possible. Fern has a carefully structured life and disrupting her routine can be...dangerous.

When Rose discovers that she cannot get pregnant, Fern sees her chance to pay her sister back for everything Rose has done for her. Fern can have a baby for Rose. She just needs to find a father. Simple.

Fern's mission will shake the foundations of the life she has carefully built for herself and stir up dark secrets from the past, in this quirky, rich and shocking story of what families keep hidden.
