"A big, entertaining novel...Rich in character and place and humanity...Gail Godwin is a wonderful writer."
THE BOSTON GLOBE
At the death of Leonard Strickland, beloved Southern gentleman, husband and father, his family is faced with the unknown. Nell always relied on the husband of her youth for security and friendship. Fiercely independent Cate and perfect Lydia have spent their lives vying for the love and approval their father generously gave. And as each woman begins to view her life, her past, and the possibilities of the future with new eyes, each belatedly discovers that life and death are impossible to plan, and that the past that has kept them apart can bring them closer to themselves and one another....

It's time to read this again (4th, 5th??) AND I CAN'T FIND MY COPY!! HELP! I am one of three daughters and I like reading this and calculating where each of us falls on the "Cate to Lydia" scale.
