When Richie Rossiter, once a famous pianist, dies unexpectedly, Chrissie knows that she must now tell the truth to their three daughters: their parents were never married. Yet there is one more shock to come when Richie's will is read. It seems he never forgot the wife and son he left behind years ago - Margaret, who lives a quiet life of routine and work, and Scott, who never knew his famous father. Now two families are left to confront their losses and each other, and none of them will ever be the same.
Witty, intelligent, and insightful, The Other Family is a story of modern family life from a beloved author of domestic fiction.

I enjoy most of the books that Rosalyn Landor narrates; this one notwithstanding. I wasn't sure what direction it might take me when I started reading but I enjoyed the trip. Just goes to show you that we need to be prepared as much as possible for what the future might bring.
