A shocking murder forces a family to come to terms with its past

Each of Lydia Seagrave’s daughters is unhappy in her own way. Although a successful novelist, Daphne is professionally stunted and bored with her doctor husband. Her sister Kitty, the owner of a small California tea room, feels empty without a child. And Alex, the youngest, is a recent divorcée who is having trouble just paying her rent. When the three girls return home for their parents’ fortieth wedding anniversary, they hardly expect to be confronted with murder. Their father is dead, and Lydia was found with the smoking gun. As she goes on trial the three sisters struggle to solve the mystery of why their mother, a seemingly devoted wife, would murder their father in cold blood, uncovering family secrets that threaten to tear them all apart and confronting their own unhappiness along the way. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Eileen Goudge including rare photos from the author’s personal collection.

Eileen Goudge was born July 4, 1950 and grew up in the San Francisco bay area. She began writing at the age of eight. At eighteen, she dropped out of college, ran off with a man dodging the draft, and got married. Two years later, she was divorced, with a baby, and had to go on welfare. She decided to become a professional writer, started writing non-stop and managed to sell a few articles. In the early eighties, she was chosen to help launch a new line of teen romances, which became the successful Sweet Valley High series. She now had enough money to end another bad marriage and move to New York City with her two children. She continued to write the Sweet Valley High titles while working on a novel. Her first novel, Garden of Lies, was sold in 1986 to Viking for nearly one million dollars. Since then, she has written over thirty novels for young adults and over ten works of women's fiction. Her other works include Thorns of Truth, The Diary, and Once in a Blue Moon.
