Una-Mary Parker is a commentator on the royal family. Formerly editor of Harpers & Queen and social editor of Tatler, she has also worked as a journalist for the London Evening Standard and the Daily Mail.From Booklist:
Liza Granville is proud of her four daughters but longs for the pre-World War II years, when parties, big houses, and good marriages were the most important things in her life. Juliet seems to have a good husband at least, but she is terrified that he will discover the dark secrets from her past. Rosie has married a wealthy American but, like her mother, happiness eludes her. Amanda, the bane of her mother's existence, cares nothing for parties and men and plans to become a politician. Liza has pinned her hopes on her youngest daughter, Charlotte, but is scandalized when she becomes a fashion model. But the Granville sisters' ups and downs pale in the face of a tragedy that shocks the family to the core and brings the cracks in their relationships to the surface. Fans of romantic family sagas will find much to enjoy in the latest installment of Parker's sweeping and poignant series. Emily Melton
