Her Fearful Symmetry

All us Audrey Niffenegger fans had to wait 6 long long years for her second novel to come out, and it has proven that patience pays off!
She is just such an entertaining writer, with little eccentricities that I find myself enjoying while reading her books.

In Her Fearful Symmetry, a ghost story set in and around Highgate Cemetry, Niffenegger tells a story about identical mirror twins Julia and Valentina's strongly entertwined relationship and how they struggle with trying to be independent individuals.
It becomes a ghost story and of course, ends ironically, just like her first novel, The Time Traveller's Wife.

No doubt her first novel will always be my favourite, but Her Fearful Symmetry was just as entertaining!
