As Anthony and Rachel Brinkley welcome their third daughter-in-law to the family, they don’t quite realize the profound shift that is about to take place. For different reasons, the Brinkleys’ two previous daughters-in-law hadn’t been able to resists Rachel’s maternal control and Anthony’s gentle charm and had settled into their husbands’ family without rocking the boat. But Charlotte—very young, very beautiful, and spoiled—has no intention of falling into step with the Brinkleys and wants to establish her own household. Soon Rachel’s sons begin to think of their own houses as home and of their mother’s house as simply the place where their parents live—a necessary and inevitable shift of loyalties that threatens Rachel’s sense of herself, breaks Anthony’s heart, and causes unexpected consequences in all the marriages. Then a crisis brings these changes to the surface, and everyone has to learn what family love means all over again.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Joanna Trollope creates an impeccably observed world, exploring the vagaries of love and family ties with honest grace.” Connie May Fowler, New York Times bestsellin author
“[A] thoroughly engaging, intelligent, literate novel.” Washington Post
“Trollope is at her best in this tightly woven family drama. Her characters are well drawn, and the life events are believable. Readers will care about the outcome, and will find popular, prolific Trollope’s latest very hard to set down.” Booklist
“Family ties bind rather too tightly in the bestselling author’s latest capable snapshot of British middle-class domesticity…Smoothly drawn.” Kirkus Reviews
