Summary of The Cousins Summary of The Cousins Reviews for The Cousins An Excerpt from The Cousins
From the “master storyteller”* of The Best of Everything comes a wise and wonderful novel of family loyalties (and disloyalties).
 
Olivia is a twice-divorced New Yorker from a large extended family who grew up together on a magnificent summer estate, Mandelay. Although the cousins have scattered across the country, following sharply divergent paths, memories of their shared childhood continue to resonate, shaping their lives and decisions. When they’re together, they long for a vanished past, but alone Olivia must face a family legacy of lies, infidelity and tragedy.
 
The Cousins is a sweeping saga that richly portrays the secrets we keep from family and from ourselves, from an author who voiced the experience of a generation.
