When you read Webs of Perception, you will find a twisted tale of twin sisters who look so much alike that the only way to tell them apart is by their personalities. When one sister is injured during an accident at sea and ends up with amnesia and the other sister goes missing, no one knows which one is which, not even their parents. What makes it worse is that the sister with amnesia knows where her twin is and why she has not contacted her family, but she just can't remember. The author, Darlene Quinn, keeps the reader hooked on the unusual drama this high profile family encounters, and the love and acceptance the parents show towards their naive adult daughters. Their steadfastness through any trial is the foundation of this family and they certainly have their share of hardship.

It is noteworthy that Darlene Quinn has done an immense amount of research on several of the topics Webs of Perception integrated into the plot. The different types and degrees of amnesia are discussed, while the author familiarizes the reader with the loneliness and fear a patient would experience while living with this uncommon condition. Quinn also presents the market challenges brick and mortar department stores are encountering through the twins' father, and gives a more in-depth study in the back of the book about changes that are needed to keep this industry afloat. I found this novel enticing and it grabs you from the very beginning. Quinn did an excellent job conveying the confusion one twin had living the life of the other.
