Description
Best-selling author Belva Plain follows the  enormous success of Whispers and  Daybreak with another explosive  novel that explores the realities simmering below the  surface of a seemingly admirable Amencan family.  In the opening pages of The Carousel  a woman is looking at an exquisite music box, a  silver carousel. She is pensive and reflects upon  how this beautiful object has linked the momentous  events of a family's life. She has married into  that family, the Greys, whose successful business is  nationally known. The sun has long shone upon the  patriarch, Oliver Grey, his two sons Ian and  Clive, and his niece and nephew, Amanda and Dan. Oliver  has recently handed over control of the business  to his two sons and his nephew. Amanda has a  non-voting share. Now the sky has clouded over and  terrible storms arise as a series of incidents  threatens to destroy the family... Amanda is making  furious demands upon the business. Ian's greed and his  adultery collide with Clive's jealousy. And the  five-year-old daughter of Dan and his wife has been  the victim of sexual abuse. The Greys, pillars of  their upstate New York community, are being torn  apart. And before their ordeal comes to an end  someone will be the victim of murder. As she did in the  enormously successful Whispers,  Belva Plain tells a timely story of a family with  a dark and dirty secret. With the additional  touches of mystery--a new territory for Belva Plain  --The Carousel confirms her place as  one of our most compelling and popular writers.  "The queen of the family saga writers...Belva Plain  is in a class by herself." -- The New  York Times.
