What a storyteller! I mean that as the highest praise, I can hardly wait for her to write another... ( )

Explores the mystical connection between two twins. One of the twins hides something from the other and the results are devastating. This story is told in the forward and back in time format so if you don't like "time jumping" you will not like this story.

I didn't like the fact that the heroine seemed to need a man to prop her up so often. I also didn't like the fact the underlying story arc about the keris seemed to drag on so long and the unnecessarily detailed descriptions of settings in Italy.

The book has a good ending that makes having stuck with it through the long rambling middle section worth it. I wouldn't read this book again. ( )

The Last Will of Moira Leahy by Theresa Walsh is a very intriguing and engaging read. Maeve and Moira Leahy were identical twins who were incredibly close. They grew up in Maine. Maeve is a saxophone prodigy, and as a child, was fearless, free thinking, and uninhibited. Moira felt like she stood in her sister's shadow. She loved Maeve, but where Maeve was outspoken Moira was quieter. Where Maeve loved adventures, Moira enjoyed reading Jane Eyre. Maeve was an acknowledged saxophone player, Moira was a good, but not great, piano player. Maeve longed to leave her hometown. Moira was content to stay.

When the story opens, the reader knows that Maeve lost her sister 9 years ago and she has drastically changed her physical appearance so that she no longer resembles her sister. She has given up her music, and is psychologically fragile. Maeve has insulated herself, always playing things safe. She is estranged from her mother. She has found success as a professor of languages at Betheny University, but she is a workaholic, staying as busy as possible so that she does not need to think about her sister or the circumstances that led to her loss. With the exception of a childhood friend and her roommate, Kit, she distances herself from any personal relationships. Upon winning an auction-house bid on a Keris, a Javanese dagger, that reminds Maeve of her carefree childhood with her sister, Maeve's life begins to change.

I read a tremendous amount, and I am always looking for a story that is different or takes a new approach. In this regard, the book was excellent. It almost has a psychological thriller feel to it. Never would I have thought any story about a Keris would interest me, but it did. It captured my attention and I kept reading to find out more. Admittedly, there were parts about the Keris and a journey to find out more about it that lingered a little too long for me, but not enough to spoil the read. I would have loved to have learned more about some of the amazing secondary characters as well. ( )
