The stunning bestseller about a family divided by a great fortune—and the secret that holds them all captive.

Set in the years of sudden prosperity following World War II, in the mansions and boardrooms of the Van Zale family, Sins of the Fathers is the story of a ruthless dynastic struggle to control the Van Zale fortune. From generation to generation, this obsession possesses the rival claimants, eventually destroying their happiness and their lives. When the world of the Van Zales—with its servants and country houses, European summers and Bar Harbor clambakes, polite marriages and discreet affairs—begins to fall apart, we begin to see this glamorous sphere for what it really is: rife with ruthless, power-hungry men, fortune hunters, secret sex, blackmail, and violence.
