9780452288263: Special Relationship

A razor-sharp romance from the author of Weekend in Paris and Summer in the City

Renowned London literary agent Annie Hamilton never forgot Jordan Hope. And now he’s back. As the saxophone-playing United States presidential hopeful, Jordan is a constant reminder to Annie of their whirlwind love affair during the heady days of Oxford in the 1960s—and of the secret she’s kept ever since.

Comfortably married with three wonderful children, Annie thinks her life is complete. But her son Tom, now twenty-one years old, discovers Annie’s secret—and his own shocking connection to it. In tumult, Tom flees to Manhattan to try to unravel the past and confront the man who might be his father, with no regard for Jordan’s delicate political situation. Desperate to explain, Annie races after Tom...and straight into the arms of the man she thought she’d never see again.

About the Author:

Robyn Sisman’s Special Relationship launched her onto the London Times bestseller list, where she returned with Summer in the City and, most recently, Weekend in Paris.

From Publishers Weekly:

It's late October 1992, and 21-year-old Tom Hamilton, son of top London literary agent Anne, has just learned that his biological father is a certain saxophone-playing former Rhodes scholar who is now running hard for the U.S. presidency. That's the premise of Sisman's first novel, which redeems its titillating concept through fluid writing and well-wrought characters. Anne's liaison with Jordan Hope two decades before at Oxford isn't the only secret in her past, as she learns from her dying mother in Chicago, where she has traveled to meet clandestinely with Jordan to discuss the paternity situation. Meanwhile, Tom, seeking Jordan on his own, stops in Manhattan to visit his godmother, the keeper of yet more family secrets. The narrative includes a long and rambunctious flashback to the Oxford and London of the 1960s and their subcultures of sex, drugs, rock 'n' roll and protest marches. Insider details about the publishing business in London and New York add further to the hard-edged excitement, although the novel's conclusion is too pat. To Sisman's credit, what at first glance appears to be trading on tabloidism turns out to be a fine bit of storytelling, a captivating roman a clef in which politics and passion mix with bombshell potential. Literary Guild and Doubleday Book Club selections.
