Publisher Description

Brilliantly entertaining, A Family Daughter might also be the most insightful novel about families and love that you will read this year.

It's 1979, and seven-year-old Abby, the youngest member of the close-knit Santerre family, is trapped indoors with the chicken pox during a heat wave. The events set in motion that summer will span decades and continents and change the Santerres forever.

A rich, full novel about passion and desire, fear and betrayal, A Family Daughter illuminates both the joys and complications of contemporary life, and the relationship between truth and fiction.

A Family Daughter

Another novel about a self- indulgent, self-reflexive world of middle-class Americans. Written with a smooth-flowing facility all the characters sound and feel alike, despite the author’s careful delineation of their differences.
