Conjoined twins Rose and Ruby Darlen, born in the midst of a tornado and abandoned by their mother, are raised by Aunt Lovey, who refuses to see them as deformed.

Rose shares her darkest memory and her deepest regret, while Ruby, the prettier, more practical twin, offers critical details, such as what prompted Rose to write their life story. Descriptions of sex and violence, some strong language. 2006.
