A Twin’s Redemption by Yasmine Fordyce is an interesting tale about twin girls Angelique and Mildred Shortstreet. The story begins with the girls experiencing their first day in kindergarten. The two redheads are extremely intelligent and mature for their age. Unfortunately, their parents neglect them most of the time and they have to fend for themselves. Mr. Humble, their school principal, intervenes and realizes that they were never exposed to real loving behavior. He takes care of them as best he can. Out of the blue, the twins’ parents make the decision to separate them. Despite this separation, they reach out to each other via telepathic messages. They eventually find each other but Angelique dies in Mildred’s arms. Mildred is constantly on the run and changes her identity as well.
A Twin’s Redemption is an engaging book. I was immediately caught up in the plot from the very first chapter. I actually read the book in one sitting! I strongly felt every emotion that the twin girls experienced. This displays the excellent skills of author Yasmine Fordyce who captivates her audience with her descriptive and suspense filled storyline. The language used is semi-formal to reflect the serious nature of the central theme of child abuse. I love the reference to the telepathic abilities of the girls. It would be really interesting if research could be done to establish the prevalence of this phenomenon in twins around the world. As a reader, you cannot help but feel anger towards the abusers of these innocent girls. I also love the resilient spirit of the remaining twin. This feature of her character really stands out. This element encourages readers to be hopeful, despite the trials they face in life. I love the pervasive theme of good overcoming evil. This novel is truly an entertaining read.
