Summary
Even as little girls, Sarah and Emily are very different from each other. Emily looks up to her wiser and more stable older sister and is jealous of her relationship with their absent father, and later her seemingly golden marriage. The path she chooses for herself is less safe and conventional and her love affairs never really satisfy her. Although the bond between them endures, gradually the distance between the two women grows, until a tragic event throws their relationship into focus one last time. Richard Yates's masterful novel follows the two sisters from their childhood in the 1920s through the challenges of their adult choices, and depicts the different ways they seek to escape from their tarnished family past
Summary
Sisters Emily and Sarah Grimes evolve into two very different women after their parents' divorce--Sarah is stable and settling into an unhappy marriage, and Emily is independent, struggling with one unsatisfactory love affair after another, in a story about overcoming a tarnished family history
