Personal book review

Personal book review today is a book I recently had the pleasure of reading.
The book in question is

" Her fearful Symmetry" by Audrey Niffenegger.

The story is set with a backdrop of the famous Highgate cemetery in London.
When Elspeth Noblin dies she leaves her apartment to her twin nieces.
Julie and Valentina are pleased but sad as part of it was on condition their mother can't come into the place.
They are shocked when the letter comes as they never knew their aunt existed. The twins hope that while in London their lives can be separate.
What leads on from there is a wonderful story of relationships and grief. Also a deadly ghost story, but with love.
I found I totally could not put it down, and have passed it on to other friends.
It is written by the same author as " The time traveler's

I could not recommend it enough for my personal book review.
