She’s embarrassed by her German father—he’s the janitor at her school, he has a funny accent and a limp. And when the kids at school taunt her by saying he was a Nazi during the war, she can’t dispute them with confidence. She’s never known exactly what he may or may not have done during the war. It is a period of time no one will ever discuss. 1995, Leeds: Eliza is in love. She has dropped out of university to pursue her passion—dance. But then talented artist Cosmo comes along and soon Eliza realizes that she might have room in her life for two loves. But can she really continue to lie to everyone around her? And why is she so afraid of the truth? 1930s, Germany: Two brothers are trying to fend for themselves during the chaos of the rise of the Third Reich.

All of these characters’ fates will collide in an audiobook that explores what we are ultimately willing to do for love. Saskia Sarginson hypnotically examines whether our identities are tied to where we’ve come from in a captivating mystery that shows how sometimes history doesn’t tell the true story.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“I raced through The Other Me in just a few short sittings. Part coming-of-age story, part consuming family history, and part gripping mystery, The Other Me deftly moves between WWII Germany and London, nearly half a century later, until the storylines collide. This enthralling read will keep you up long into the night.” Ruth Ware, New York Times bestselling author of In a Dark, Dark Wood
“Gripping and spectacular, The Other Me by Saskia Sarginson is storytelling at its best.” Sarah Jio, New York Times bestselling author of The Look of Love
The Other Me is the kind of novel I adore, precisely because it crept up on me and I suddenly realized I was hooked and couldn’t put it down. I loved the complex relationship between the brothers and all the uncertainty surrounding them. The difficult decisions they were forced to make during the war were so intriguing. The love story is wonderful. And I was rooting for Klaudia and Eliza from the very beginning. It’s an incredibly thought-provoking book. All in all, I loved The Other Me. It’s a beautifully written, gripping novel.” Louise Walters, author of Mrs. Sinclair’s Suitcase
