About this title


The children in The War of the Roses were determined not to repeat the devastation, destruction and self-immolation engendered by their parents, which were evoked in that bestselling novel and then the most famous movie ever made about divorce.

In The Children of the Roses, Josh marries Victoria for evermore, and his hugely overweight, happy-go-lucky sister Evie finds pleasure at the trough and through a series of live-in lovers. But in all-too-human, unpredictable and often hilarious turns, the betrayals begin.

Soon Josh and Victoria are on their way to their own form of internecine warfare and disaster. Victoria's demonic and male-hating mother and the overstuffed and ever-sympathetic Evie are their constant counterfoils. Antagonists include a suave headmaster, who turns out to be a relentless sexual predator, and a blackmailing husband. The couple's children, Michael and little Emily, engineer some stunning surprises of their own that will forever change their parents' wayward ways. From noted storyteller Warren Adler, The Children of the Roses is an absolute page-turner.

"A funny new spin on dysfunctional family life-engrossing, unpredictable and touching."--Sidney Sheldon
