On The Cover: The Carousel by Belva Plain

ON THE COVER:

Here's what's on the cover jacket of the book 'The Carousel' by Belva Plain.

'A page-turner.' - The Philadelphia Inquirer

'BELVA PLAIN IS IN A CLASS BY HERSELF.' - THE NEW YORK TIMES

"There's no doubt in my mind," said the psychiatrist. "Your TIna has been sexually abused." Sally Grey stumbled out of the doctor's office numb with shock and disbelief. Such things didn't happen to families like the Greys, wealthy, proper families who raise fine, well-bred children. But Dan and Sally's five-year-old was clearly troubled, retreating into a world of fantasy and rage.....

 For generations Greys dominated the upstate New York city of Scythia. Now Oliver Grey, the silver-haired patriarch, has bowed out, leaving Grey's food to his two sons and nephew Dan. But as outside forces threaten the business, the once unimpeachable dynasty is shattered from within - by a tormented child obsessed with an heirloom silver carousel...and by a family member bent on revenge, a woman with an unspeakable secret and the power to destroy them all.....
