First chapter, first two paragraphs, is a meme hosted by Bibliophile by the Sea.
I’m currently reading My Secret Sister, the true story of Helen Edwards & Jenny Lee Smith, twins separated at birth and reunited fifty-seven years later.
This could be the most important email I ever send. I go over it again, one last time. My finger hovers over the mouse. I hold my breath . . . Click!

From the same book:
Jenny: When I was three years old, my dad cut some old wooden golf clubs down to a size I could use and showed me how to hold them. (p.19)
Helen: My father Tommy had come from a self-made family who had earned plenty of money from their building business, and he had his own Bullnose Morris car before the war until his father’s bankruptcy forced him to sell it. (p. 22)
