Description

Merritt Fowler is a natural caretaker -- of her physician husband, Pom; her lovely, fragile daughter, Glynn; her erratic younger sister, Laura; even her destructive mother-in-law. Exhausted and confused, Merritt no longer knows who she is or what is important to her. She only knows that she is searching for something. When a family argument sends Glynn running from her Atlanta home to her Aunt Laura in Hollywood, Merritt feels compelled to follow. On impulse, the three women take off in Laura's red Mustang convertible, barreling up the wild coast from the Palm Springs desert to the Santa Cruz mountains outside San Francisco -- earthquake country. There, in the protective shade of the great redwoods, Merritt, Glynn and Laura struggle to see if the widening fissures between mother, daughter and sister can be healed as they search for the bedrock of strength and courage that can save them. Deeply moving and masterfully imagined, a novel that gets to the heart of the confusing power of love and family, "Fault Lines" is Anne Rivers Siddons at the height of her remarkable storytelling powers. "A literary meteor shower....One great read. It moves guickly, brings you to laughter and tears, builds suspense and tells a hell of a great story beautifully."
-- "Detriot News/Free Press"
