TTPT- Her Fearful Symmetry

 I just finished reading Audrey Niffenegger's novel "Her Fearful Symmetry" This was both a strange and intriguing book.
   Julia and Valentina Poole are twenty-year-old sisters with an intense attachment to each other. One morning the mailman delivers a thick envelope to their house in the suburbs of Chicago. There English aunt Elspeth Noblin has died of cancer and left them her London apartment. There are two conditions for this inheritance: that they live in the flat for a year before they sell it and their parents not enter it. Julia and Valentina become involved with their living neighbors: Martin, a composer of crossword puzzles who suffers from crippling OCD, and Robert, Elspeth's elusive lover, a scholar of the cemetary. They also discover that much is still alive in Highgate, including perhaps their aunt.
 In this book you will never guess the ending. It is a page turner.
