Great book about Siamese twins
I really enjoyed reading this book. Dean Jensen takes the reader on a remarkable journey through the lives of Daisy and Violet Hilton, Siamese twins joined together from birth. From their early days of being exploited as sideshow freaks to working as performers on the vaudeville stages, from county fairs to Hollywood, you'll learn about these amazing sisters as well as gain a glimpse of what life is like for conjoined twins. The Hilton sisters experienced both triumph and tragedy throughout their lives, they gained their freedom from those who only wanted to take advantage of them while on the other hand, they were swindled numerous times and lost their fortune. I also really enjoyed learning the history of showbusiness during the first half of the 1900's through the eyes of Daisy and Violet. I highly recommend this book.
