AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'When Greg Herbert is suddenly confronted with Bruce, his double, the results wreak havoc on his hitherto close relationship with the boy he always thought was his twin brother, Shane. The two very different families: the Herberts, with their five children and their noisy, crowded household; and the Cunninghams in their over-tidy house in a prosperous Sydney suburb, become embroiled in an impossible situation.'
