Publisher's Summary

Raised in a poor yet genteel household, Rachel Woodley is working in France as a governess when she receives news that her mother has died suddenly. Grief stricken, she returns to the small town in England where she was raised to clear out the cottage...and finds a cutting from a London society magazine, with a photograph of her supposedly deceased father dated all of three month before. He's an earl, respected and influential, and he is standing with another daughter - his legitimate daughter. Which makes Rachel...not legitimate. Everything she thought she knew about herself and her past - even her very name - is a lie.
Still reeling from the death of her mother and furious at this betrayal, Rachel sets herself up in London under a new identity. There she insinuates herself into the partygoing crowd of Bright Young Things, with a steely determination to unveil her father's perfidy and bring his - and her half sister's - charmed world crashing down. Very soon, however, Rachel faces two unexpected snags: She finds she genuinely likes her half-sister, Olivia, whose situation isn't as simple it appears; and she might just be falling for her sister's fiancé....
From Lauren Willig, author of the New York Times best-selling novel The Ashford Affair, comes The Other Daughter, an audiobook full of deceit, passion, and revenge.

Good story

The synopsis sounded interesting .... the storyline was a good one but I think it might have been better for me to have read it rather than listened to as the narrator irritated me so much. The main character came across as spoiled and petulant, which really she was not. A good story spoiled by a melodramatic reading.

Another enjoyable listening experience!

Always enjoy novels set in England during this time period, and Lauren Willig's work kept me interested. The narration added extra depth to the whole experience of b the journey with Rachel Woodley, new friends and associates. Having read Lauren's previous novel, The Ashford Affair was hoping the experience would be just as enjoyable via audio book. Definitely not disappointed. Thank you Lauren Willg and Nicola Barber for taking me another world away. Look forward to many more.
