With The Best of Friends, American readers have taken Joanna Trollope into their hearts. That critically-acclaimed novel has climbed bestseller lists around the country and garnered raves from reviewers like Good Housekeeping who said that she captures the poignant rituals of family attachment and detachment with delicious wryness and large doses of empathy. But with Other Peoples Children--a number 1 bestseller in England--she brings her work to a bold, new level, with a novel of rare seriousness and depth, about a subject that hits readers right where they live.Here, she delves fearlessly into the emotional dynamics of family life--or rather, life in that ever-expanding unit, the stepfamily. With her sensitive eye and unerring ear, she explores the hard-won truths and often harder-to-overcome difficulties of coping with present and former husbands and wives, and above all, with other peoples children. And sometimes it becomes painfully clear that good intentions--and even love--are not enough.Joanna Trollopes understanding of the human condition and empathy with the frailties of her characters are unmatched. No one goes more fearlessly into the emotional and practical dynamics of family life, nor offers such bittersweet truths mixed with hopeful solutions. So moving, so provocative, and so unforgettable is the portrait she has created in Other Peoples Children that American readers and reviewers are sure to fall in love with Joanna Trollope all over again.
