Summary
Teenaged Christine Wainwright's parents seem to regard her (and her musical ambitions) as an inconvenience. Christine's earnest, vain brother David is the star of the family: an up-and-coming novelist who's given his parents a perfect daughter-in-law and adorabled grandchildren. The middle child, Melissa, is struggling with her teaching career and a choice between two men: steady, pragmatic Leander and worshipful Connor. When Christine disappears, suspicion falls on the Wainwrights' scheming neighbor, Andy Palinkas, who loathes Christine's parents. The unfolding mystery reveals the true story behind the Wainwrights' respectable facade: a convoluted saga of unwanted children, disastrous marriages, romantic double-crosses, and domestic plots and counter-plots. Ambitions is stark, elegantly written family drama, set in a Mid-western university town: a story of aspiration, frustration, adoration and betrayal
