Overview

Joanna Trollope delves into the dynamics of stepfamily life and introduces us to two couples whose relationships are complicated by the enriching-and sometimes enraging-presence of others. From the grown daughter who insinuates herself into her widowed father’s romantic life, to the sullen teenager whose loyalties lie with her estranged mother; from the awkwardness of tense celebrations to the discovery of surprising sources of strength, this novel is "a bittersweet tale of the painfully divided affection created whenever a stepfamily is formed." (Kirkus Reviews)
