The Darling Girls Synopsis

Three women, one man, and a tangle of lies. When the world famous music conductor Leo Bruck dies suddenly, the three women who loved him meet for the first time at his graveside. Victoria, his partner of twenty years and mother of two of his children; Maddy, mother of Leo's daughter Phoebe; and twenty-four year old Cat. Can these three very different women, whose lives become inextricably bound, break free from the masterful control Leo exerts - even from the grave - once and for all? THE DARLING GIRLS is a moving story of love, loss, and the prevailing power of female friendship.
