Regina and Renata Greenleaf are identical twins, born and raised in Everett, a small town thirty miles north of Seattle. They are so alike that even their own mother can't tell them apart and they share a private language that they only understand. They think of Mark Austin as their unofficial big brother whose job is to gets them out of scrapes. When tragedy strikes and Regina is murdered, Renata goes insane and has to be institutionalized.

When she comes out of her psychosis, she no longer remembers her parents, but recognizes Mark. He becomes her catalyst that sets her on the road to recovery. When she is released from the institution, she joins Mark in Seattle where he attends the university. A second tragedy occurs and this time Mark is determined he will keep Ranata safe from harm.

REGINA'S SONG is a novel that transcends genre classification, as the story line will appeal to readers of all genres. The characters are ordinary people who know the true meaning of love, friendship and fellowship. David and Leigh Eddings, well known for their sword and sorcery tales, break new ground with this heartbreakingly beautiful tale.
