In Double Billing the reader gets to meet twins separated at birth, Emma and Emily. What would you do if a sister you didn't know you had suddenly showed up ... and a twin no less?

Emma wanted to meet her sister since she learned she had a twin. Emily never knew she had a twin, she did know she was adopted, but never did the talk reveal a sister. Both their lives change when they meet each other in adulthood. Emma has a daughter, but no husband and Emily has a husband, but no children.

Not to be a spoiler, I will let the reader find out the rest of the story on their own time. The twists in the plot and the characters will help maneuver you through whatever is thrown at you. The author did a great job of keeping my interest from beginning to end. The book read easily and I did it in one night because I couldn't put the book down once I started reading. The paths taken by all leave you laughing sometimes, but crying more often than not. The story really isn't sad, just the situations that the characters are put in sometimes makes you feel for them.

In fact, what I will let on is that every main character gets exactly what they want in the end. Emma meets her sister, and a special person you'll have to wait to discover. Emily finds herself after much self discovery and even Jules, Emily's husband, gets what he's longed for his whole life.

I look forward to more from the author.

This is the story of 2 identical twins who find each other in adulthood. One knew that she had a twin, and the other had no idea. The book is mostly about the twin who did not know she had a twin, and about the twists and turns her life takes as a result of meeting and getting to know her unknown twin. Her life is turned upside down in more than one way, but I don't want to tell more than that because it would spoil the surprises along the way.

This is a captivating book. I stayed up very late 2 nights reading it, as well as found a few minutes to read in the morning before work and during my lunch hour. This is one of those rare books that made me really care about the characters, think about them, and miss them after I finished the book. What I loved the most was the insight into the emotional and psychological life of the main character. I think that is how we come to feel like we know and care about a character--when we know not only what is happening to them, but also what they think and feel, their insights, their invisible struggles, etc. The author skillfully weaves all of that together so that we get well-rounded, 3-dimensional people. The upheaval in the main character's life was unexpected and well done.

After I got about 3/4 through the book it began to get interesting. Other than that it was just a "bunch" of descriptions about family emotions thrown together.

Double Billing is a gentle, yet masterful, story of a family that's linked by blood, by adoption, and by choice. The skillful plot development and deceptively fast-paced writing style propel the reader through ups and downs that Emily experiences as her world falls apart, heals, and becomes joyful once again. Each character contributes thoughtful moments to the plot . . . helping the reader see different, acceptable reactions to interesting events.

I was quickly sucked inside Emily's fast-changing world. As her family grew unexpectedly, I enjoyed learning her reactions to what each person brought to the table. Mostly, I found her journey believable and appreciated her vulnerabilities in the face of adversity. Discovering an unknown twin and niece . . . such surprise, such joy. Learning her twin is gravel ill . . . so sad, so confusing. Dealing with her parents' deception, her infidelity, her husband's destructive behavior, and searching for her birth mother . . . overwhelming and conquerable.

An excellent read!

So interesting to read a book written by a Psychiatrist and reflect on how much my 39 years working in the field of mental health and psychotherapy has shaped who I am and how I think about people and life.

Double Billing is an engaging and satisfying read that respects some of the enormous challenges some of us face and reminds us of the joys available.

Now I'm going to find images of those gates. Thanks Dinah, great job!

I remember reading portions of this book when it was in blog-form. It was written in the first person, I personally prefer it when prose is in first person (I spend a ton of my time in academia, so fiction in the first person is a lovely retreat away from that world)... so I am speaking with a bit of bias here, but yes, I did prefer it when it was written in the first person. The book was riveting none the less, I was hooked.
