Isabel is the troubled daughter of charismatic but reckless parents who hastily wed, divorced just as fast, and distanced themselves from each other-and their child. Left to her grandparents' care, Isabel longs for her remote, glamorous mother and for a father who is a fading memory. Unable to control her agony, Isabel rebels in perverse and dangerous ways. A captivating novel that gives new meaning to Freud's "family romance," Thicker Than Water vividly illuminates the fragile line between love and the darker sides of passion. From the Trade Paperback edition.
