Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Oh this is a tough one.  Joanna certainly knows how to put her thumb on a bruise and continually push till it hurts.  Why Richie never divorced his first wife to marry the mother of his three girls, his partner for twenty-three years, is beyond me.  Now he’s dead and there is a Will to sort out … oh dear.  This is Joanna writing at the top of her game, as astute and sensitive as ever.


Comparison: Libby Purves, Lionel Shriver, Elizabeth Buchan.

Synopsis

The Other Family by Joanna Trollope

Chrissie, in the twenty-three years she'd been together with Richie, had always believed that he loved her. He loved their three daughters and their house in Highgate and their happy, lively existence. But if she really was the love of his life, why had he never given her the one thing that would have made her life perfect? Then suddenly Richie is no longer there, and without him Chrissie's carefully constructed life is in jeopardy. The one big fact she had always tried to keep from her daughters threatens to overwhelm them all. For Richie had still been married to his first wife, the one with a son that he had abandoned in Newcastle. And now, with Richie gone and the practicalities of wills and money to be sorted out, it is finally time for the two families to face each other...

Reviews

Trollope is brilliant at swooping in on a modern dilemma and showing it from every angle... Inventive, surprising and fascinating The Times She writes as observantly as ever. There are always those brilliant brief glimpses of some detail which ring wonderfully true The Spectator Trollope is shrewdly observant of human interaction Daily Telegraph Trollope really knows and understands how people think and behave and she paints them realistically and with love... A page-turner that feels like sinking into a warm, deep bath. With Trollope you are always in safe hands. Highly recommended Sunday Express Joanna Trollope is the most emotionally intelligent of contemporary British novelists -- Amanda Craig Independent
