Praise
"Robinson...sees the carefully nuanced world of the social elite, particularly the world of the privileged adolescent, in a way that is moving, compelling and fresh."
From the Publisher
Annotation Robinson's second novel reflects the author's interest in the underlying circumstances of WASP family life. This is the story of a couple's second marriage on both sides, and their respective daughters' attempts to destroy it at all costs. The result is emotionally intense for all involved. A "New York Times" Notable Book for 1998.
Editors Note After Peter and Emma, refugees from troubled first marriages, decide to blend their families, the opposing needs of parents and children cause tensions.
Editors Note 2 When Peter and Emma, both refugees from failed first marriages, decide to create a new life together, they do so with an optimistic commitment to creating a union -- and forging a new family from two existing ones -- bonded by love and trust. Their young daughters, however, are not partners in this new venture, but helpless participants. Like all children of divorce, the girls feel sorrow, loss, and a longing for their earlier lives. As the tensions and complexities grow steadily more powerful, This Is My Daughter moves inexorably to a stunning and emotional climax. Roxana Robinson, who has established a reputation as a perceptive chronicler of WASP family life, delivers a beautifully moving and compassionate account of a marriage in peril, proving once more that class and privilege provide no protection from the passion of opposing desires.
