Helen Edwards grew up in a pit
village in Tyneside in the post-war years, with her gran, aunties and
uncles living nearby. She felt safe with them, but they could not
protect her from her neglectful mother and violent father. Behind closed
doors, she suffered years of abuse. Sometimes she talked to an
imaginary sister, the only one who understood her pain. Jenny was
adopted at six weeks and grew up in Newcastle. An only child, she knew
she was loved, and with the support of her parents she went on to become
a golfing champion, but still she felt that something was missing. . .
Neither woman knew of the other's existence until, in her fifties,
Jenny went looking for her birth family and found her sister Helen.
Together they searched for the truth about Jenny's birth - and uncovered
a legacy of secrets that overturned everything Helen thought she knew
about her family. Happily, they also discovered that they were not just
sisters, they were twins. Inspirational and moving, My Secret Sister
by Helen Edwards and Jenny Lee Smith, is the story of two women brave
enough to confront their past, and strong enough to let love not
bitterness define them. >
