Doubleday, 1998
A compelling novel of mothers and daughters torn apart by loss and twisted emotions, In My Mother’s House sweeps from the brownstones of turn-of-the-century New York to the stately farmlands of Connecticut, to explore a woman’s shame, a family’s deceit, and a final act of love.
“Accomplished…a saga without sentiment…the portrait of Lydia is one of the novel’s triumphs.”
-New York Times Book Review

I was totally captivated by Elizabeth Winthrop’s three-generational tale of a family secret, and the terrible consequences of silence.
-Dominick Dunne
