Dearest Rivals by Jane Elizabeth Varley
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Nina, Susan and Richard - three siblings who, like so many brothers and sisters, don't particularly like or trust each other. Richard is the spoiled baby of the family, still jealously guarding his position as his mother's favourite. Susan has never been indulged - or so she believes - and she bitterly resents it. She has always felt that she deserved more than she got and is envious of Nina who appears to have it all. Nina has been married to workaholic Alex long enough to decide that it's time for a child, but for him the moment is never right. There's always another property to buy, another deal to be struck. Or is there something else that's keeping him late so often at the office, something readily on offer that he cannot refuse? Nina has spent her life as the peacemaker of the family - the dutiful daughter, sister and wife. Her reward has been a seemingly perfect life. But as the secrets of those closest to her are shockingly revealed, suddenly everything is under threat - her marriage, her home and her future happiness.
