ENTWINED LIVES

A SECRET THAT RIPS THEM APART

TWINS ON A TURBULENT VOYAGE OF DISCOVERY


A sugar plantation, a waterlily pond, and a decades-old deception are the backdrop for When Lily Ponds Ripple. It is a forceful narrative about the West Indian twins, Florence and Charlotte Montague. Their rivalry for the same man underscores just how close loyalty and betrayal are.

The revelation of a family secret takes the Barbadian sisters from their sheltered island to London and Germany. In Frankfurt, Florence becomes a notable author, while Charlie’s career leads her from the London stage to Hollywood. Despite their geographical separation, the sisters cannot escape one another, far less their shared history. To face the future, they must confront the past together.

Born in Trinidad, Anne-Marie Fitzwilliam grew up in Barbados. At the age of twenty-one, she emigrated to Germany where she read English and German at the Wolfgang Goethe University. She holds degrees in both subjects. The author lives in Frankfurt. This is her first novel.

    It is difficult not to be drawn into the sisters’ lives. "When Lily Ponds Ripple" cast a spell over me. Some chapters depict the sensual magic of the West Indies, others illustrate the sober atmosphere of Germany during the Cold War. Before long, Frankfurt and Royal Palms become protagonists in their own right. Highly entertaining.
