The Twins by Saskia Sarginson

Twin sisters Isolte and Viola were inseparable, growing up in a tiny Welsh village with their beloved hippie mother. Life was full of daydreaming and endless exploration — until an innocent mistake with irrevocable consequences sets the sisters on hugely divergent paths. Now they’re in their 20s, and Issy’s method of coping is to work hard and live in the now, while Viola struggles with an eating disorder and tries to survive on childhood memories. Will the two ever be as close as they were as children?
