Nearly five decades after they were swapped at birth, two women change each other’s lives

Sylvie Rosenthal is dying, and one great mistake still weighs on her soul. In 1943, as a new mother in a Bronx maternity ward, she feared for her life. What would happen when her husband saw their new daughter, whose dark hair and black eyes proved she wasn’t his own? Sylvie couldn’t bear to find out, and during a terrifying hospital fire fled the building with another woman’s child in her arms. Decades later, she told her real daughter the truth, but asked Rose to keep her secret, lest it destroy Rachel, the girl Sylvie raised as her own. Then, after years of silence, the two women’s lives, intertwined in more ways than one, are once more turned upside down. In this sequel to the blockbuster Garden of Lies, Rose and Rachel, bound forever by a secret that only one of them understands, must both find the courage to face the truth. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Eileen Goudge including rare photos from the author’s personal collection.
