COMMERCIAL FICTION – WOMEN’S LITERATURE

Two close friends, called “the Daphnes” by their friends and colleagues as they’re both called Daphne and are journalists with the same daily news show, decide to go a 3-month trip through the Middle East. When they’re in Jordan visiting the old town of Petra, a local advises them to take a hike up the rocky mountains nearby. From the top, they’ll have a fantastic view overlooking the city. Their adventure comes abruptly to a halt when one of them makes a fatal fall.

Cosmopolitan: “This true story describes how two women shared everything – really everything. They could chat for hours about problems in their relationships and that one shirt which when worn on a night out is always successful. Readers will recognize themselves in these passages, which are fluently written […] You’re left with an intensely sad feeling when finishing the book, because you get to love the two Daphnes.”
