Balancing ActBook - 2015
A mother, three daughters, their men and a multi-million-dollar pottery business: the new novel from the beloved, bestselling chronicler of modern family life
Susie Moran has set her children a high standard. As a young woman, she founded Susie Sullivan, a company famous for producing charming pottery that makes every house feel like home. Her three daughters have followed her into the company--business-minded Cara, overworked but ambitious mother of two Ashley, and designer Grace. But all of these female entrepreneurs face the challenge of balancing their commitment to the business with their need for, and commitment to, their personal lives--never mind the feelings of the men with whom they live or are involved. The arrival of an unexpected family member from the past is the catalyst that impels them all to face up to where their real loyalties lie and, more importantly, what matters most to each one of them.
Balancing Act is classic Trollope, sure to captivate her fans and win her many more the world over.
