***TOP-TEN BESTSELLING AUTHOR***

From Richard & Judy bestselling author of The Twins comes a haunting and suspenseful new novel about a girl with a secret - and a past that is destined to catch up with her...

'There are some books which are so compelling, the plots so engaging and the writing so perfectly paced and accessible that simply captivate the reader and this for me was one such book' We Love This Book

Despite everything life has thrown at Eliza Bennet, she's living the life she's worked so hard to achieve. She's who she wants to be, where she wants to be and with the man she loves.

But Eliza is living a lie. Her real name is Klaudia Myer, and Klaudia is on the run, escaping her old life and a terrible secret buried at the heart of her family.

Eliza feels as though she's been running away her whole life. But when her father comes to her with a terrible request, she knows her double life is about to be exposed.

How much longer is it safe to carry on pretending?

This is a haunting and deeply powerful story about identity and the deep secrets that lie at the heart of every family.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Read [and] enjoy * Independent *
Storytelling at its very best - a moving tale about how guilt and shame can govern lives and how only love and generosity can change that - set with such conviction and authenticity in a daily life that feels like it could be yours or mine. Gripping -- Cecilia Ekback, author of WOLF WINTER
I raced through THE OTHER ME in just a few short sittings. Part coming-of-age story, part consuming family history, and part gripping mystery, THE OTHER ME deftly moves between WW2 Germany and London, nearly half a century later, until the storylines collide. This enthralling read will keep you up long into the night -- Ruth Ware, author of IN A DARK, DARK WOOD
Tragic, haunting and affecting . . . a truly immersive emotional experience and a read that you'll want to share and discuss * We Love This Book *
Four stars * The Sun *
There are some books which are so compelling, the plots so engaging and the writing so perfectly paced and accessible that simply captivate the reader and this for me was one such book * We Love This Book *
Secrets on every front make this fast-moving tale better than the average romantic novel and the World War 2 scenes add to the interest * Otago Daily Times *

“Personal/historical drama - not thriller”

Though not a thriller at all, The Other Me was a thought provoking, appealing personal drama centered around Klaudia/Eliza, a person keen to escape her overbearing father's past and the torment she suffered... More
