Publisher Comments:

When a beautiful young Frenchwoman and a brilliant American    actor meet in wartime Paris, their love begins like a fairy tale but    ends in tragedy. Suddenly orphaned, their three    children are cruelly separated. Megan, the baby,     adopted by a family of comfortable means, becomes a    doctor in the rural Appalachia. Alexandra, raised in lavish    wealth, marries a powerful man whose pride is in    his pedigree and who assumes that Alexandra is her parents'    natural offspring. Neither of them has the remotest suspicion    that she is adopted, or what turbulent tragedy lurks in her past.    And Hilary, oldest of the Walker    children, remembers them all, and the grief that tore them    apart and cast them into separate lives. Feeling the loss    throughout her life, and unable to find her sisters, she builds an extraordinary    career and has no personal life.

    When John Chapman, lawyer and prestigious private    investigator, is asked to find these three women, he wonders why.    Their parents' only friend, he did nothing to keep them together    as children and has been haunted by remorse all his life.    The investigator follows a trail that leads from    chic New York to Boston slums, from elegant    Parisian salons to the Appalachian hills, to the place where    the three sisters face each other and one more final, devastating    truth before they can move on.
