Beloved storyteller Belva Plain understands the rich tapestry of the human heart like no other. Her many dazzling New York Times bestsellers probe the shifting bonds of marriage and family with insight, compassion, and uncommon grace. And her new novel is no exception. A tale of fathers and daughters, lovers and families, acts of love and acts of betrayal, Her Father’s House is Belva Plain’s most powerful and unforgettable novel yet.

It is the spring of 1968 when Donald Wolfe, a young graduate of a Midwestern law school, arrives in New York. Filled with ambition and idealism, he is dazzled not only by the big city but by the vivacious, restless Lillian, whom he marries in the heat of infatuation. Surely theirs is no marriage made in heaven, but they have a child, Tina, and she is the love of Donald’s heart. For her he would give up everything—his home, his distinguished career, and his freedom. When his flawed marriage begins to fail, a choice must be made. Shall he consider a step that would force him into flight and a life of hiding?

From her earliest years, Tina is exceptional, a brilliant student and a joyous, loving spirit. At the university she falls in love with Gilbert, who graduates from law school just as she is about to enter medical school. Together they go to New York, where she learns the truth about her family’s past, a truth that must change her regard for the father who has protected and cherished her. When a terrible lie has been told out of love, can it be forgiven?

With courage and compassion, Belva Plain paints a moving portrait of the choices that shape the course of our lives, the secrets that haunt us, and the love that helps us heal and move on. It is a work of riveting storytelling and rare emotional power by one of the most gifted novelists of our time.

    " Intense, with beautifully crafted characters. Heartbreaking, and hard to put down. I lost count of how many nights I stayed up past midnight just trying to get to the next chapter. "

    " took about 130 pages before i was into this book but after that, i really enjoyed the story. after a short time with his daughter's wife, he discovers that she is an unfit mother and decides to kidnap his 2 year old daughter. probably more like 3.5 stars than 4. "

    " This book was a very quick read for me. I didn't want to put it down. It's about a very successful guy that gets married to the wrong women, and then gives up everything to "save" his daughter. I already gave away too much, so I'm not saying anymore. "

    " I wasn't too sure about this book; it started of slow and I felt like it was not going to live up to the epic Evergreen. But I was won over, and it was a good fluffy read. Ms. Plain does a great job making characters that are good people and that is always refreshing. "
