Rosalind Noonan, acclaimed author of One September Morning and In a Heartbeat, is known for her emotionally charged and riveting novels. In her forthcoming book, THE DAUGHTER SHE USED TO BE (Kensington Books, October 2011; Trade Paperback – $15), she combines the morally complex suspense elements of Jodi Picoult’s family dramas along with the romantic elements of Kristen Hannah to explore ideas of loyalty, family and justice.
Bernadette Sullivan was born to uphold law and order. The daughter of a career cop, she grew up with blue uniforms hanging in the laundry room and officers laughing around the dinner table. Her brothers joined New York’s finest, her sister married into the force, and Bernie is an assistant District Attorney. Collaring criminals, putting them away–it’s what the Sullivans do. And though lately Bernie feels a growing desire for a family of her own, she’s never questioned her choices.
Then tragedy rips the tightly woven fabric of the Sullivan family; a shooter targets cops in a local coffee shop, killing three officers. A Sullivan is among the dead. Anger follows grief–and Bernie realizes that her father’s idea of retribution is very different from her own. As Bernie struggles to protect the people she loves, she must also decide what it means to see justice served. And in her darkest hour, she will find out just what it means to be her father’s daughter.
ROSALIND NOONAN went to college in New York City and currently lives with her husband, a retired officer from the NYPD, and two children in the Pacific Northwest.
