From the Back Cover:

Joanna Trollope is a "writer who seldom strikes a wrong note"*, and in Other People's Children, a #1 international bestseller, she has composed her best work to date. Delving into the dynamics of stepfamily life, she introduces us to two couples whose relationships are complicated by the enriching -- and sometimes, enraging -- presence of others. From the grown daughter who insinuates herself into her widowed father's romantic life, to the sullen teenager whose loyalties lie with her estranged mother; from the awkwardness of tense celebrations to the discovery of surprising sources of strength, this novel is "a bittersweet tale of the painfully divided affections created whenever a stepfamily is formed.

(*Kirkus Reviews)
