Description

Raised in a poor yet genteel household, Rachel Woodley is working in France as a governess when she receives news that her mother has died, suddenly. Grief-stricken, she returns to the small town in England where she was raised to clear out the cottage...and finds a cutting from a London society magazine, with a photograph of her supposedly deceased father dated all of three month before. He's an earl, respected and influential, and he is standing with another daughter-his legitimate daughter. Which makes Rachel...not legitimate. Everything she thought she knew about herself and her past-even her very name-is a lie.

Still reeling from the death of her mother, and furious at this betrayal, Rachel sets herself up in London under a new identity. There she insinuates herself into the party-going crowd of Bright Young Things, with a steely determination to unveil her father's perfidy and bring his-and her half-sister's-charmed world crashing down. Very soon, however, Rachel faces two unexpected snags: she finds she genuinely likes her half-sister, Olivia, whose situation isn't as simple it appears; and she might just be falling for her sister's fiancé...

From Lauren Willig, author of the New York Times bestselling novel The Ashford Affair, comes The Other Daughter, a page-turner full of deceit, passion, and revenge.

        June 1, 2015
        Best known for her long-running Pink Carnation series, Willig has been venturing outside of the Napoleonic era for her stand-alone offerings. Her latest is set in 1920s England, where respectable governess Rachel Woodley has been dealt a double blow when her mother dies and she discovers her father, whom she'd long thought dead, is living in London with a wife and two grown children. Rachel grew up believing her father was a botanist, but the pages of a society magazine reveal that he's actually an earl with a large estate. With the help of a handsome, droll gossip columnist, Simon Montfort, Rachel reinvents herself as a socialite and works her way into the social circle of her sister, Lady Olivia. As much as she wants revenge on her father, Rachel can't help but sympathize with her repressed sister, even when she's rocked by the discovery that Simon and Olivia were once engaged. Vibrant and thrilling, Willig's third stand-alone should garner an audience beyond fans of the Pink Carnation series.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2015, American Library Association.)

        In early 1927, Rachel Woodley leaves her position as governess to be with her ailing mother, but she arrives too late and the world she knew is gone. Cleaning out their cottage, Rachel is stunned to find a current photo of her deceased father. Not only is he alive, but he's an earl with a wife and two adult children. Gaining the assistance of Simon Montfort, a gentleman with proper connections, Rachel assumes the life of a Bright Young Thing hoping to meet these strangers who are her family. Endearing characters struggle with consequences of old and new relationships that continue evolving until the final page. VERDICT Willig's (That Summer; The Ashford Affair) judicious use of 1920s slang and famous names to be spotted by alert readers creates a strong sense of place and time; she also respects the social hierarchy required to depict genuine British aristocracy of the time. This stand-alone will appeal equally to longtime Willig fans and readers looking for character-driven, historical fiction with a light touch of romance.

        In the 1920s, when Rachel Woodley returns to her tiny English hometown after her mother's death, she discovers a scrapbook proving that her father is an earl with a debutante daughter--and that Rachel herself is illegitimate. Beloved author Willig trades in her "Pink Carnations" to offer a taste of revenge.

shortDescription

Raised by her widowed mother in genteel poverty in an isolated English village, for the past six years Rachel Woodley has been working in France as a nursery governess. When her mother unexpectedly dies, she returns to England to clear out the cottage, and finds a scrapbook full of cuttings from London society pages—all pictures of her supposedly deceased father, very much alive. He's an earl, socially prominent, with another daughter who is living a charmed life: a debutante, much photographed, and engaged to a rising Tory MP. Rachel's cousin confirms the horrible truth: her father is alive, with a legitimate, acknowledged family. Which makes Rachel...not legitimate. Everything she thought she knew about herself and her past—even her very name—is a lie.
Still reeling from the death of her mother, and furious at this betrayal, Rachel enters into an uneasy alliance with a mysterious man-about-town, who promises her access to her father. With his help, Rachel...
