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 months 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 that she genuinely likes her half-sister, Olivia, whose situation isn't as simple it appears; and that 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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Willig ventures into the Roaring ‘20s with an intriguing novel of a young woman’s hunt for truth, revenge, and redemption. The story evolves in simple prose, yet the complexity of the storyline and the characters draws readers deeply into the story until they are completely invested and hooked until the end. Readers will find themselves looking into their hearts and relationships, comparing their reactions to the characters’. A thoughtful read.” RT Book Reviews (4 ½ stars)
“Nicola Barber’s narration offers a delightful assortment of voices that richly portray the characters of this Regency romance. The resonance of Barber’s voice captures the determination of Rachel Woodley…Crisp diction captures the propriety of these English characters, while a more nasal tone suggests undertones of condescension. With subtlety, Barber reveals Rachel’s changing emotions, including her dawning realization that perhaps revenge is not so sweet after all. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
“Vibrant and thrilling, Willig’s third stand-alone should garner an audience beyond fans of the Pink Carnation series.” Booklist
