Gwen McCormick: A one-time campus radical turned civil rights attorney, married to a best-selling author, Gwen is everything she always wanted to be — until her husband’s latest success dredges up secrets she thought she’d left behind, and threatens to expose the lies on which she’s built her entire life.
Jo McCormick: Gwen’s butch, hedonistic eldest daughter, Jo has built a successful business around her love of fast cars. She may have just met the girl of her dreams, but her new love is about to be threatened by her own pride and her mother’s mistakes.
Jean McCormick: Jo’s younger sister, Jean is a 21-year-old film student — sardonic, cynical, bitter, with a host of painful, hidden scars. There’s no love lost between Jean and her mother and sister, but when it all comes crashing down, it’s up to her to pick up the pieces.
This was my first novel. The original version of it was written while I was still a teenager and was, to put it charitably, a royal mess. I rewrote it completely some years later. I am still not satisfied with it and a third rewrite is on my list of things to do. It has NOT been published. (Why does this manuscript have a cover?)
