By Belva Plain
From one of the world's most beloved storytellers, a novel of mothers and daughters, of mixed blessings and second chances. CROSSROADS brilliantly explores the fragility of life - and the power of love to heal and transform.
Gwen Wright has grown up in a world of privilege and opportunity as the adopted daughter of a powerful woman.
Jewel Fairbanks has grown up with nothing. From the moment they meet, beautiful, conniving Jewel envies Gwen, who seems to have everything Jewel wants. The two couldn't be more different, but their lives will soon become inextricably intertwined.
Both will marry - but to profoundly different men. For Gwen, it is honest, hardworking Stan who steals her heart; Jewel will set her sights on Jeff, a shrewd businessman who owns the company where Stan works.
But when Stan makes a shocking discovery on the job, relationships begin to shift and change and soon a tangled drama of greed, jealousy, and betrayal will encircle both couples, as a chain reaction of unexpected events changes four lives forever in ways they never could have foreseen.
