Synopsis

The Patchwork Marriage by Jane Green

When Andi married Ethan she not only got the man she loved but also the chance to be a mother, to his daughters Emily and Sophia. Unable to have a child of her own, Andi saw this opportunity at motherhood as a precious gift. If only it were that simple. For this is not a happy family, and the trouble lies with Emily. Her conflicted feelings towards her stepmother leave Andi feeling hated in her own home despite years of trying to reach out to her stepdaughter. And with each new drama, Emily drives Andi and Ethan further apart. Just as Andi starts to contemplate a life without Ethan and the girls, Emily comes home with some shocking news. News that will change their lives forever. In 1996 Jane Green revolutionized women's literature with Straight Talking and its free-spirited heroine Tasha. Fifteen years later, Jane a 2.5 million bestselling author, now a mother of four, married twice and dealing with all the things a woman in her forties faces on a daily basis, is releasing her best ever coming of age tale that will satisfy her most demanding fans.
