Description: A taut, complex psychological thriller from the author of The Doctor’s Wife Like The Doctor’s Wife— which The Boston Globecalled “a compelling read”—Somebody Else’s Daughteris a literary page-turner peopled with fascinating and disturbing characters. In the idyllic Berkshires, at the prestigious Pioneer School, there are dark secrets that threaten to come to light. Willa Golding, a student, has been brought up by her adoptive parents in elegant prosperity, but they have fled a mysterious and shameful past. Her biological father, a failing writer and former drug addict, needs to see the daughter he abandoned, and so he gains a teaching position at the school. A feminist sculptor initiates a reckless affair, the Pioneer students live in a world to which adults turn a blind eye, and the headmaster’s wife is busy keeping her husband’s current indiscretions well hidden. Building to a breathtaking collision between two fathers—biological and adoptive, past and present— Somebody Else’s Daughteris both a suspenseful thriller and a probing study of richly conflicted characters in emotional turmoil.
