The Other Family
Date: March 2010
Duration: 10 hours 35 minutes
When Richie Rossiter, once a famous pianist, dies unexpectedly, Chrissie knows that she must now tell the truth to their three daughters: their parents were never married. Yet there is one more shock to come when Richie’s will is read. It seems he never forgot the wife and son he left behind years ago—Margaret, who lives a quiet life of routine and work, and Scott, who never knew his famous father. Now two families are left to confront their losses and each other, and none of them will ever be the same. Witty, intelligent, and insightful, The Other Family is a story of modern family life from a beloved author of domestic fiction.
“Trollope tests our assumptions about human behavior in times of crisis and invites her characters to meet enormous changes in their lives open-heartedly so that they may learn what’s truly important.”--Washington Post
