What do you do when you discover you are your own worst enemy?

Reclusive painter Jenna DeLauro is stunned when her long-estranged sister and life-long enemy Lara shows up on her doorstep asking Jenna to keep her teenaged daughter while she does prison time. A fierce single mom and former cover-girl, sister Lara is a stunner with hyacinth-blue eyes, obsessed with protecting Autumn from the dangers lurking for beautiful girls. 16 year-old Autumn, a 3-D copy of her mother, is a lonely genius with a passion for art, yearning to find a love less exacting than her mother’s.

When old letters and a financial ledger surface, all three women are forced to relive the unspeakable secrets of the past. Ambition, deceit and jealousy nearly destroyed Lara and Jenna. The revelations about her family launch Autumn, alone, on a quest to New York City to take revenge on her mother’s molester; her father. Will resurrecting the past destroy or rescue Autumn?

Accidental Daughter is a work of women’s fiction told in the three viewpoints of the three main characters. They live in the emotional realm of Jodi Picoult, Anita Shreve and Anne Patchett.
