About The Lives and Loves of Daisy and Violet Hilton
The lives and loves of Daisy and Violet Hilton follows the poignant life story of twin sisters who were literally joined at the hip, set against the tumultuous backdrop of America during the first half of the 20th century. Daisy and Violet and an unforgettable cast of show-business characters come alive on the pages of this carefully researched and sensitively written biography.
“Jensen’s book is a testament to the fickleness of the entertainment world.” -Tampa Bay Tribune
“It is an affecting story, gently and honestly told without frills, without sensation. In Jensen’s hands, the twins are always human, individuals, never freaks joined at the hips as the world saw them after their birth in 1908. . . Here, their story is pure.” -Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
