After her debut in 2016 with the New York Times Best Seller The Mothers, American author Brit Bennett has another gripping novel waiting for us.
Midst this long journey of life, we all find someone so special that we wish to never part from them. Some people are blessed with that one person right from the beginning of their journey. When you have a twin sister or a twin brother, you have the assurance of someone who will stand by your side under all circumstances, will know you from your deep conscience, and will always remain inseparable to you. But what if you lose that one person? Will they find their way back to you?
Based on such an appealing story of two twin sisters, The Vanishing Half: A Novel is also set to be released this June 2020. Let’s get the details.
The Plot of The Vanishing Half by Brit Bennett
After sharing the same womb, living under the same roof, and growing up in the same small town of Mallard, the Vignes Sisters- Stella and Desiree had always been together. The town they lived in was rather a one where no one would do something to let their community down. But the twin sisters had something a lot more different bustling in their minds. At the mere age of 16, both the sisters ran far away, leaving all their restrictions, responsibilities and that wretched town far behind.
However, to hold on is also not that easy. Eventually, they both take two different roads in this venture. While Stella marries a white guy, Desiree finds herself with the darkest man she could which is another thing her town won’t stand. After 14 long years, Desiree comes back to Mallard, clinging to the little hands of her “black” daughter.
But until how long can this separation between two soul sisters last for? What will happen when their new worlds will collide? Will there be a point when the storylines of their next generation will come together?
Felicitated with the title of the Most Anticipated Book of 2020 by Oprah Magazine, this upcoming youth race novel will not only bare our racist society but will also uncover the other horrifying and unsettling events one endures alongside this taboo.
