The House of Vandekar

(1988)
A novel by

 
 
Publisher's Weekly
With the period details and skillful fore shadowing that have distinguished her 27 previous novels, Anthony ( The Tamarind Seed ) depicts England's wealthy Vandekar clan, a family plagued by tragedy. The marriage of Boston debutante Alice Holmes Fry and Hugo Vandekar, in 1934, is marred by her averson to sex. They purchase a magnificent estate called Ashdown, where Alice gives birth to Fern, a child she shuns. During World War II, Ashdown is temporarily converted into a convalescent home for officers, one of whom becomes Alice's pet patient and father of her illegitimate son, Richard. The Vandekars' strained relations worsen when Richard (Alice's favorite) marries nymphomaniac Diana Brayley, and Fern (Hugo's favorite) weds struggling artist Brian Kiernan. Eventually, Diana's infidelities destroy Richard, and, after the family discovers her shocking liaison with Brian, she dies suddenly at Ashdown. Years later, Nancy, Diana's daughter, warily investigates her mother's death, unearthing the surprising identity of her killer. Anthony renders her characters' soured romances and dramatic confrontations with compelling realism.
