Pilcher brings Scotland to life in Under Gemini

She never knew she had a twin sister. . . That was until one fateful day at a Soho restaurant.

Flora, unemployed and temporarily homeless, arrives in London and has an incredible surprise. She agrees to a deception for the sake of an old lady, meets some delightful people in Scotland, and (inevitably) falls in love.

Great characters and conversation, and it didn't worry me that the plot is perhaps a little too contrived. Eminently re-readable, moving in places, and thoroughly enjoyable.

Highly recommended to anyone who likes character-based women's fiction. ( )

Every wondered what sort of person you might have been if you had been born into a different family? That question is at the heart of this story revolving around twins separated at birth--one wealthy, amoral and seemingly shallow, the other kind, humble and engaging. Pilcher's great gift is the development of her characters. In this book, she chooses to fully explore only one of the twins but it is, as are most of her books, a satisfying read. ( )

Flora and Rose are identical twins who have never met. Rose has been raised by a frivilous mother to be part of the international jet set and Flora has spent her childhood with her father in a quiet cottage. Then, one day, the twins meet. I loved this book and give it an A! ( )
