When a beautiful young Frenchwoman and a brilliant American  actor meet in wartime Paris, their love begins like a fairy tale but  ends in tragedy. Suddenly orphaned, their three  children are cruelly separated. Megan, the baby,  adopted by a family of comfortable means, becomes a  doctor in the rural Appalachia. Alexandra, raised in lavish  wealth, marries a powerful man whose pride is in  his pedigree and who assumes that Alexandra is her parents'  natural offspring. Neither of them has the remotest suspicion  that she is adopted, or what turbulent tragedy lurks in her past.   And Hilary, oldest of the Walker  children, remembers them all, and the grief that tore them   apart and cast them into separate lives. Feeling the loss  throughout her life, and unable to find her sisters, she builds an extraordinary  career and has no personal life.   When John Chapman, lawyer and prestigious private  investigator, is asked to find these three women, he wonders why.  Their parents' only friend, he did nothing to keep them together  as children and has been haunted by remorse all his life.  The investigator follows a trail that leads from  chic New York to Boston slums, from elegant  Parisian salons to the Appalachian hills, to the place where  the three sisters face each other and one more final, devastating  truth before they can move on.… (mais)

This was a beautiful and haunting story. Hilary was such a strong main character that you can't help but root for her the moment that she's introduced. I have never cried so much during a book as I did with this one. ( )

It's a story of heartache and pain. They love and live; and then they hate and die. It tells of life and how it can change in the matter of moments. ( )

KALEIDOSCOPE: the first, shimmering moment of life, like a diamond in the sea, glittering in the noonday sun, brightly lit and glowing flame, a brand new name, a shining light, then gentle twist and darkest night comes for the first time, then happy rhymes and gentle songs, hearts that belong until one stands alone, from brightest dawn to deepest dusk, from morning sun to twilight dreams, fantastic schemes and lives that sometimes go awry, such shining hopes, and sudden turns, from bright to dark from grim to grand from joy to sorrow, always waiting for tomorrow and a twist of fate, a ray of hope. . . with the faintest sleight of hand, the alteration of all life's scemes and all its scope. . . all with one tiny turn of life's kaleidoscope.

To three very special little sisters: Samantha, Victoria, and Vanessa, Precious little ladies, And their big sister, Beatrix, who is so lovely, and their three big brothers, Trevor, Todd, and Nicky, and little brother Maxx, who are very special too:
May each of you be blessed with good lives, and good fortune, good hearts, and good people to love you and who you love well. May you always be safe, and strong, and happy. . . and together!
And may each turn of the kaleidoscope bring you joy! The first turn, which was our turn, brought you to us, one by one, special gifts, greatly loved, precious people. And may your own turns bring you love, and flowers. . . never demons. . . Hold fast to each other, beloved ones, bring each other strength, and laughter and good times and love. . . just as once we brought them to you.

With my love, for you and your Daddy, and with ours, for each other, and you. With all my heart, ds.
