Niffenegger, Audrey. Her Fearful Symmetry. Scribner, 2009. ISBN 978-1439165393 416 pp. $
This intertwined story revolves around three couples who reside in the same apartment building in London on the border of Highgate Cemetery: Julie and Valentina, a pair of American twins; their dead aunt Elspeth and her lover Robert; and Martin, whose OCD has driven his wife Marjike of many years back to the Netherlands. Elspeth is haunting the flat, and only Valentina can see her.
This has a slow start, and the characters, while interesting, are hard to warm up to. The plot is convoluted and meandering, and not entirely unpredictable. Glad I read it, in 2010.
