Susannah Marren in conversation about her new book Maribelle’s Shadow

June 27, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Maribelle, the eldest of the three Barrows sisters, deserves to be envied. Not only for her plum position as editorial director of Palm Beach Confidential, but for her impressive husband, Samuel, and his involvement in the family business. Together, they present themselves as the “it” couple of Palm Beach. She might have even aced her two stunning younger sisters.

But things aren’t always what they seem. When Samuel unexpectedly dies, suspicion around the Barrows family swirls. Suddenly the authenticity of their socially ambitious mother, Lucinda, and their lavish existence of mansions, prestige, privilege, and couture wardrobe are in question.

As their carefully constructed image unravels, their tidily placed aspirations are challenged. Each sister realizes she must fend for herself and fight for not only what she longs for, but believes in. For Maribelle, it is the will to rise above the discovery that her husband was not who he seemed. For Caroline, the middle sister, it is facing the fact that she is suffocating from the life she built to please her family. For Raleigh, the youngest, her double life surfaces, threatening her status of wife and young mother.

As each of the Barrows sisters searches for a pathway out, an unexpected power play emerges. Until the price of escape is too dear and worth any risk. Until the winner takes all.

Susannah Marren will be in conversation with Kara Feifer, producer of the podcast She Wants More
