Younger daughters Kitty and Alex live near the family home on the California coast; eldest sister Daphne, a novelist, has to fly in from New York, leaving her husband, Roger, behind to take care of their children.

She began as a young adult writer, helping to launch the phenomenally successful Sweet Valley High series, and in she published her first adult novel, the New York Times bestseller Garden of Lies.
She lives and works in New York City. Just before their 40th anniversary, Lydia Seagrave freely admits to shooting her husband. Grown daughters Daphne, Kitty, and Alex must try to determine why their mother killed the man she, and they, loved.
Along the way, the sisters must examine their feelings for their parents and others they love. Each must also decide if she is ready to pursue what she truly desires in life. Though Goudge still writes about family secrets, love, and forgiveness, this plot seems less convoluted than some of her earlier ones.

I recently saw the excellent movie "Gainsbourg: Vie Heroique", which rekindled my interest in relistening to some of my Gainsbourg and Birkin CDs.
Out of the many, many compilations available on Serge Gainsbourg, I've had this one in my collection for a while bought it at a great price here in Amazon, in fact , and still listen to it regularly. The CD covers tracks 22 years, from to , and thankfully the tracks are sequences chronologically. The first 7 tracks show how Gainsbourg evolves from a "chansonier" check out ""La Javanaise" for one to a pop artist. The core of this compilation showcases 10 tracks from just 3 years to , when Gainsbourg was at his commercial peak.
They are all essential track, from the duet with Brigitte Bardot "Bonnie and Clyde" , the controversial but massive No. What a fantastic compilation. If there is one negative about this and differently from "The Best of Jane Birkin" , sadly the lyrics to the songs are not included in the booklet instead we get some insightful liner notes , which is really a shame, as so much of Gainsbourg's songs involve subtle or not so subtle word-play.
Moi Non Plus" in the car with my parents and sisters I was 9 at the time , and while I didn't really understand what the song really was about, I figured it was it was about something really, really bad.
When it came to the part where Jane Birking goes nuts, I caught my mom's horrified expression as she is telling my dad "can you believe this? Ah, the memories! I'm new to the music of Serge Gainsbourg. The song, literally translated as "I Love You Even though I don't understand French, I can only pick out a word or phrase here and there, I enjoy the tracks on this CD. The lounge, jazz, hip, ultra-cool, laid back sound that mixes nonchalance with bedroom lore and virility, that's what Gainsbourg sounds like to me.
There's something very appealing about his voice: it just oozes sexuality. Never mind the lyrics! This CD gives a good range of work starting from to I like the earlier stuff like "Intoxicated Man," which sounds like a hip, jazz song played at those beatnik clubs in Paris during the 60s. Another cool song is "Ford Mustang," the coolness coming from the oddity of it.
It has a good beat and Serge sounds like he's reading a poem or just saying phrases and a girl in the background says in English "Ford Mustang I'm not surprised there's a re-ignition of interest in Gainsbourg's music. It's really cool and that voice You can't go wrong. This, to me, is a great all around introduction to Serge.
The songs seem to span from his early career and almost up to the 80's. The only thing I wish it had was some more of the very later stuff where he used a lot of sythesizers in stuff from the album "Love on the beat" and "You're under arrest". Took a chance on this recording artist based on reputation and was disappointed.
