Entwined - Lynda LaPlante


A beautiful baroness... A fearless lion trainer... What is it that binds them?

Why does the baroness, Vebekka, behave so strangely? Why is she so loving at a certain time and why does she burn her daughter's dolls the next moment? Why does she attack a clown at a circus? Why does she hurt everyone around her... people she loves... people who love her? What are the strange colors she keeps seeing? What is it that possesses her... fills her with fury?

What makes Ruda so fearless? Her life hangs on the balance every time she steps in the same in the ring with 16 tigers... 4 lions... 4 lionesses... a panther... she loves her cats more than she loves the people around her... she loves them like her own babies... so gentle with them when the slightest human mistake makes her furious...

This is the story of Ruda and Rebecca, two sisters separated as children... their struggle as they try to find each other and themselves...

The way their lives are described entwines you in the mystery... The book is beautiful... a must read for anyone who loves adventures of a different kind... A very different book.. unexpected climax... You will love the two women who are so different yet so alike...
