The Imposter Bride by Nancy Richler

The Imposter Bride is one of those stories that I hesitate to write about in case I give away too much of the plot of the book.  Set in post-war Montreal, it is the story of Lily Azerov who arrives to marry a man she has never met.  He rejects her on sight, and his brother offers to marry her instead.  But Lily is not the woman she claims to be.  Her past in Europe begins to catch up with her and the new life she is trying to build in Canada. 
This book was so well written.  I did not know the answers to the mystery of Lily until the end of the story.  I immediately recommended this book to my Mom as a possible book club selection for her group.  I loved it and would love to read more of Richler's work.
