Title: The Other Daughter
Author: Thompson, Andrea
Department: School of English and Theatre Studies

Abstract: This thesis is a novel about the healing process that occurs between two sisters after their grandmother dies. Rachel and Emma first meet in their early teens, only to be soon abandoned by their mother, and then raised by their maternal grandmother. The novel consists of thirty-three chapters, and explores the themes of grief, trust, alienation and redemption. It is written in the third person, with point of view alternating between the two sisters, as well as between events of the present and their memories of the past. This alternating of point of view reflects the novel’s investigation of the ways in which our memories and perceptions can either aid or inhibit our ability to understand and connect to both others and our own inner truth.
