When a beautiful young Frenchwoman and a brilliant Americannbsp;nbsp;actor meet in wartime Paris, their love begins like a fairy tale butnbsp;nbsp;ends in tragedy. Suddenly orphaned, their threenbsp;nbsp;children are cruelly separated. Megan, the baby,nbsp;nbsp;adopted by a family of comfortable means, becomes anbsp;nbsp;doctor in the rural Appalachia. Alexandra, raised in lavishnbsp;nbsp;wealth, marries a powerful man whose pride is innbsp;nbsp;his pedigree and who assumes that Alexandra is her parents'nbsp;nbsp;natural offspring. Neither of them has the remotest suspicionnbsp;nbsp;that she is adopted, or what turbulent tragedy lurks in her past.nbsp;nbsp; And Hilary, oldest of the Walkernbsp;nbsp;children, remembers them all, and the grief that tore themnbsp;nbsp; apart and cast them into separate lives. Feeling the lossnbsp;nbsp;throughout her life, and unable to find her sisters, she builds an extraordinarynbsp;nbsp;career and has no personal life.

nbsp;nbsp;When John Chapman, lawyer and prestigious privatenbsp;nbsp;investigator, is asked to find these three women, he wonders why.nbsp;nbsp;Their parents' only friend, he did nothing to keep them togethernbsp;nbsp;as children and has been haunted by remorse all his life.nbsp;nbsp;The investigator follows a trail that leads fromnbsp;nbsp;chic New York to Boston slums, from elegantnbsp;nbsp;Parisian salons to the Appalachian hills, to the place wherenbsp;nbsp;the three sisters face each other and one more final, devastatingnbsp;nbsp;truth before they can move on.
