Innkeeper's daughters Adele and Eleda are mirror twins identical twins whose looks are reflections of each other's and their special talents are like mirrors too Adele is a Safe Keeper entrusted with hearing and never reveal Three and a half stars I’m not sure why I didn’t like this as much as The Safekeepers Secret It was similar and maybe that was the problem I did like it uite a bit despite that It may be that it leaned too heavily on the romance my favourite bits took place during the childhoods of Eleda and Adele I particularly loved the descriptions of Summermoon and Wintermoon in both books and the day to day events in the lives of the two sisters
