Overview

Suzanne Winston is on top of the world when her latest novel makes the New York Times best-seller list. To her younger sister, Steffani Blacker, Suzanne has it all--or nearly. A successful writer of popular fiction, mother of three and a beautiful, vivacious woman recently free of an unhappy marriage, Suzanne seems to be someone to envy and admire. Steffani is also brilliant and beautiful but is desperately ill with Gaucher's Disease, the painful hereditary illness that has plagued her since childhood. Unable to bear children, too easily led into wild, intense intimacy with the wrong men, Steffani is determined to live every moment before her time runs out. And so Steffani, terribly brave yet terrified of dying, is tempted to settle old scores and get even with "perfect" Suzanne in all the ways a sister can wound a sister with word, a phone call or a careless betrayal of secrets.

But what Steffani doesn't see is the deep insecurity and dark feelings that shadow Suzanne's carefully controlled world of family, home and career. Suzanne's ex-husband, Alex, the handsome, successful attorney she adored since she was a teenager, has left her scarred and mistrustful of men. Then a disturbing anonymous letter threatens to destroy her reputation and leave her financially ruined. Suddenly her comfortable Los Angeles life-style, her family and friends, and her fabulous success are slipping away into a nightmare existence that will shake her loyalties and values, and even endanger her life. In this crisis, Suzanne must learn whom she can trust--the new man who holds out an irresistible promise of passion, the sister she both loves and resents or the parents who are wrapped up intheir own pain.

About the Author

Sharleen Cooper Cohen began her business career by creating a highly successful interior design firm. After a decade as a designer, she turned to writing novels. Seven published novels later (The Day After Tomorrow, Regina's Song, The Ladies of Beverly Hills, Marital Affairs, Love Sex and Money, Lives of Value and Innocent Gestures), over two million copies of her books are in print in the U.S., Italy, Spain, Norway, Sweden, China and The United Kingdom. Three of them have been optioned for film and television. During her career as a novelist, she toured the United States numerous times, appearing at speaking engagements, book signings and on television and radio.

In 1995, her interest turned to the theatre and she wrote her first musical, Sheba, which she co-produced with the Jewish Repertory Theatre, Off-Broadway in New York. Sheba was one of the JRT's most successful productions and garnered an excellent New York Times review. The Sheba CD was released in January 2000 by Original Cast Records.

Since Sheba premiered, she was associate producer of Street Corner Symphony on Broadway and also produced Jerry Herman's The Best of Times at the Vaudeville Theatre in London's West End. In January of 1999, she produced Cookin' at the Cookery, the story of Alberta Hunter, in conjunction with the Arkansas Repertory Theatre.

Her musical, Stormy Weather, the story of Lena Horne, had its first reading in New York in December 1998. Readings produced by Broadway On Sunset in Los Angeles in September 1999, featured a cast that included Barbara McNair, Tamara Tunie, Kelly Britt, Dennis Cole, and Ron Glass. Additional readings, directed by Billie Allen, were held in New York in October 2000. Produced by Amas Musical Theatre, the cast included Phylicia Rashad, Ruth Williamson, Tamara Tunie and Dennis Parlato. Stormy Weather was awarded Honorable Mention in the Stage Play Script Category of the 2000 Writer's Digest Writing Competion. Amas Musical Theatre also produced readings in New York in September and October 2001 with choreography by Hope Clarke. Billie Allen directed a cast that included Phylicia Rashad, Richard White, Ruth Williamson and Tamara Tunie. Luther Henderson was the orchestrator, arranger and musical supervisor.

Her original musical, Blackout, with music by award-winning composer Debra Barsha, had its first reading in April 2002, presented by The Amas 6 O'Clock Musical Theatre Lab. Directed by Allison Bergmann, the cast included Marcy McGuigan, Joseph Sirvano, Nina Hennessey and J.T. Horenstein.

A production of Sheba, a community outreach project bringing together the African-American and Jewish communities in an entertainment experience, is planned for 2003 in Los Angeles. This production, which has the support of both religious communities, may be the first of its kind and will serve as a blueprint for a national tour.

    This good and also free?

    This is the first review I have written here. I had to say how much I enjoyed this book. It kept me guessing right up to the end. Sharleen is a master storyteller. I was drawn into the lives of her characters from the very beginning. Her words paint a picture that you can almost see. I carried my nook from room to room, a miracle that I didnt trip and fall.
    Thank you Sharleen for such a great read. I hope there are many more books in your future.
