Up Close and PersonalPaperback - 2009
In Up Close and Personal, New York Times bestselling author Fern Michaels creates one extraordinary family who shows us the power of the loves we find, the loves we lose, and the ones we carry with us always . . .
For generations, the Windsors have lived on the family's grand estate in Crestwood, South Carolina, as intertwined with local life as sweet tea and pecan pie. Now, on the anniversary of her daughter Emily's death, Sarabess Windsor believes she may be the last to carry the family name - unless she can find her second daughter, Trinity, who disappeared fifteen years ago. But the town has never forgotten her...... especially not handsome lawyer Jake Forrest.
Trinity swore never to return to Crestwood. But some ties - to a place, to a past, to the people we once were and dreams we once had - can never be fully broken. And as family secrets are revealed, and desires old and new come to light, Trinity may discover the one thing she never expected to find in Crestwood- a place to call home at last.
'Tirelessly inventive and entertaining.'
'Readers will root for the plucky heroine and her childhood friend Jake.'
