9780060974732: Thicker Than Water

Isabel is the unwanted daughter of charming but irresponsible people who married in haste, divorced just as quickly, and distanced themselves from one another--and from her. Left to her grandparents' care, longing for her elusive, glamorous mother and for a father she barely remembers, Isabel's agony erupts into perverse and dangerous rebellion. A compelling novel that lends new meaning to Freud's "family romance," THICKER THAN WATER brilliantly illuminates how fragile the line is between family love and the darker sides of passion.
