About this title


This is the story of the rapidly-growing modern social unit, the stepfamily. It explores the myths, the realities and the difficulties of trying to deal simultaneously with present relationships, past relationships and other people's children.

From the Back Cover:

Joanna Trollope is a "writer who seldom strikes a wrong note"*, and in Other People's Children, a #1 international bestseller, she has composed her best work to date. Delving into the dynamics of stepfamily life, she introduces us to two couples whose relationships are complicated by the enriching -- and sometimes, enraging -- presence of others. From the grown daughter who insinuates herself into her widowed father's romantic life, to the sullen teenager whose loyalties lie with her estranged mother; from the awkwardness of tense celebrations to the discovery of surprising sources of strength, this novel is "a bittersweet tale of the painfully divided affections created whenever a stepfamily is formed.
