Three generations of women grapple with a legacy of secrets, lies, love, and loss
Ashton. The place dreams are made of?
For most of her life, Nancy Vandekar has been haunted by the same disturbing nightmare in which a menacing figure in the shadows calls out her mother’s name: Diana. When Nancy found love, she thought she’d left her past far behind. But now a capricious twist of fate brings her back to Ashton. The magnificent family home masks a legacy of damning secrets, illicit love, suicide, and violence that casts its long shadow over three generations of women.
First, there’s Nancy’s grandmother Alice, the spirited American beauty whose passionate wartime romance has far-reaching consequences for those who come after her. Then Diana, the vivacious debutante whose sexual obsession nearly destroys them all. And finally Nancy, the last remaining heir. She alone can restore the Vandekar name. But is she ready to face the truth about her family?
Spanning decades of extraordinary change, The House of Vandekar paints an indelible portrait of three unforgettable women.
