Beschreibung

A girl comes of age in Paris with her expatriate family-and struggles with sibling rivalry-in a "delightful" novel that "captures the essence of childhood" (Library Journal).

Based on the author's life with her famous father, novelist James Jones, A Soldier's Daughter Never Cries tells the story of Channe Willis, who happily lives with her parents in Paris. But when they adopt a French boy named Benoit-ending Channe's only-child status-her idyllic world is disrupted, and the relationships among this unusual family turn volatile. The basis for a Merchant Ivory film, this is a "discerning, brightly written" novel about love and loss (Library Journal).

"Although we've gotten used to second-generation actors equaling or surpassing the accomplishments of their parents, the same hasn't happened with second-generation novelists. Nonetheless there are a few . . . and added to their small number ought to be Kaylie Jones." -The New York Times

"Every page is a joy." -Sue Harrison, Self Magazine

Includes a new introduction by the author and a previously unpublished chapter
