Jackie by Antoinette Beumer


Two twin sisters embark upon an unexpected, bewildering, touching and life-altering trip with their newfound, enigmatic mother.

Twin sisters Sofie and Daan (33) have been raised by their two fathers. When they receive an unexpected phone call from their- hitherto unknown- biological mother in the US (Jackie) they embark on an amazing adventure that alters their assumptions about everything that they once believed to be true. The trip with the strange and ill adjusted Jackie will change Sofie’s and Daan’s life for good.
