Saga | Women's Fiction Contemporary
In this sweeping family saga, Amber Sall has the world on
a platter---everything a girl could ever want. She has a
handsome, powerbroker father, an older brother she adores,
scads of money, and two best friends, Becky and Madeline.
But none of that satisfies her lifelong desire to win her
fatherís love, and for success in a career on the basis of
her own talents, not her familyís power and money.
Watching her beloved brother fail both tests only makes
Amber more determined to succeed. Through the decades, she
and Becky and Madeline need each otherís support through
the best and the worst that women can experience, but can
their friendship survive?
Max Sall, Amberís father, is a distant, self-made man,
whose lust for power comes from his tragic childhood. He
drove Amberís society mother to alcoholism by openly
keeping a mistress in Rome. His daughter with that
mistress, Paola Rossi, is spoiled by her mother. She grows
up to be a beautiful, glamorous member of the
international jet set, yet she is still envious of
everything Amber has, and determined to do what her mother
never could: get a man to marry her. But when Paola
finally marries, the result is more disastrous than she
ever could have dreamed.
