Desiree and Stella Vignes are twins born in Louisiana in a small town named Mallard. It's a town founded and inhabited by blacks in the segregated South. When they leave in the middle of the night with no goodbyes to start a new life anywhere but the small town, they find their lives taking unimaginable paths. Once you start living a lie, it's hard work to maintain it. Early decisions can change your life as well as others'. Wonderful read!!!! Wonderfully written
