A Phoenix-based author has just released a book which details the true account of one twin separated at birth as she journeys through life.

“The Other Viki,” by author Bob Bennett, follows ‘Viki,’ as she’s separated from her parents and twin and develops a life of her own. Viki was adopted by Harald, who became her father but, in all actuality, is her uncle. This book tells the story of Viki, as she’s raised by her father and journeys through life.

Bennett was inspired to share Viki’s story after hearing the entire story from Viki herself. Bennett met Viki through Mabel, his wife, who was under the care of Viki in the group home Viki owned and operated. “She gave me enough information and enthusiasm, I decided to go for it,” said Bennett. “It’s an interesting story and it covers a long history and political living in one country as compared to another country.”

One reviewer wrote, “An epic, yet intimate tale of family life, ‘The Other Viki’ chronicles an intrepid Romanian family fighting for survival, success, and love across three generations and two continents, against a sometimes-brutal backdrop of historical events.”

A compelling true story of a twin separated at birth, “The Other Viki” is the perfect summer read for anyone looking for a heartfelt true story.
