Divided Loyalties

by Patricia Scanlan

Divided Loyalties Synopsis

*** THE NUMBER ONE BESTSELLING AUTHOR *** Shauna and Greg's marriage is under pressure. She wants another baby. He doesn't. She also has to endure her obnoxious in-laws, 'The Freeloaders', Della, Eddie and their spoilt kids. Shauna's glad to be moving abroad - she'll be free of them at long last. But three thousand miles won't stop the determined Della. Carrie, Shauna's sister, can't help feeling put upon. The burden of looking after their elderly father rests on her and she's fed up. Even though she loves her siblings, resentment builds. Can Carrie put her foot down and stand up for herself? Bobby, the youngest, has a poisoned relationship with his father who blames him for the premature death of his wife. A bitter confrontation leaves them estranged. The last Christmas the family got together was a disaster, but circumstances change. Can the family turn things around and finally put the past behind them as they prepare for another family gathering?
