Three powerful novels about family and the female experience from the multimillion-selling author of The Women’s Room. A collection of three works of fiction by a New York Times–bestselling author who “write[s] about the inner lives of women with insight and intimacy” (The New York Times Book Review). Her Mother’s Daughter: In this life-affirming saga that celebrates the love and sacrifices of four generations of Polish-American mothers and daughters, Stacey, a divorced feminist New York photographer, struggles to understand the experience of her mother, a child of Polish immigrants who clawed her way out of poverty and settled into a middle-class existence—while at the same time managing her tempestuous relationship with her own daughter, Arden. Our Father: As distinguished presidential adviser Stephen Upton lies mortally ill in a Massachusetts hospital, four women gather at his lavish mansion. Half sisters Elizabeth, Mary, Alex, and Ronnie have painful and poignant memories of their childhoods—and their dying father. They haven’t seen each other in years, but as they open up to each other about the man they both love and hate, they will discover the terrible secret that binds them all together. The Bleeding Heart: Dolores Durer, a divorced professor and mother of two adult children, has sworn off love after a series of disastrous affairs. Meanwhile, electronics executive Victor Morrissey is in England to open a branch office. He has four children and is unhappily married. When Victor and Dolores meet—on a train—their connection is instant and passionate. In this New York Times–bestselling novel about love and marriage, two Americans abroad embark on an affair that will have consequences in both their lives.

Famed feminist Marilyn French’s life-affirming saga celebrates the love and sacrifices of four generations of Polish-American mothers and daughters. With Bella Dabrowski close to death, her daughter Anastasia, who has reinvented herself as Stacey Stevens, is trying to penetrate the longstanding barriers between them to understand the woman who gave her life. Through the eyes of Stacey, a divorced, feminist New York photographer, we get to know Bella, a remarkable woman, wife, and mother. The daughter of Polish immigrants, Bella, who renamed herself Belle, clawed her way out of poverty and settled into a middle-class existence. Shifting perspectives between the two women, the reader is drawn into Belle’s life through the lean years of the Depression as well as Stacey’s recollections of her youthful marriage, a lesbian affair, and her tempestuous relationship with her own daughter, Arden. From the groundbreaking author of The Women’s Room, Her Mother’s Daughter explores past and present to reveal the complex, indestructible bonds between daughters and mothers.

Moving and eloquent, Our Father is a testament to the power of female bonding.
