    insightful look at the struggles with a sudden reversal

    On Park Avenue in Manhattan, secretary Carla DiRoma separately informs face to face the shocked Atkinson cousins (Mary Beth, Nikki, and Gabrielle) that their investment banker Lester Markham absconded with their trust funds. The trio know that they are broke and used to a golden spoon from having inherited their respective money. Now the cousins needs to find a way to earn money for basic sustenance. <P>Surprisingly, though somewhat estranged over the years, the threesome come together planning to survive this crisis. With the encouragement of Carla, they also chart a course to find, prosecute, and get their money back from Lester. However, to succeed they must forget that tragic summer years ago that sent them on their separate paths and stay united in their quest to regain what they lost, which they will learn is much more than a mere fortune. <P> TRUST FUND BABIES is an insightful look at three individuals struggling with a sudden reversal in their lives. The cousins are warm engaging protagonists, but they adapt too easily to their change in fortune (what¿s a million here - soon the cousins will be talking real money). Carla is a wonderful ¿mother hen¿ and friend to the not enough beleaguered Atkinson women. She enables Jean Stone¿s novel to remain a fascinating tale. <P>Harriet Klausner
