Amazon Synopsis
Set in New England mainly and London partly, "On Beauty" concerns a pair of feuding families - the Belseys and the Kipps - and a clutch of doomed affairs. It puts low morals among high ideals and asks some searching questions about what life does to love. For the Belseys and the Kipps, the confusions - both personal and political - of our uncertain age are about to be brought close to home: right to the heart of family.

I think I enjoyed this - difficult to say! I disliked most of the characters except the two women of the families, Kiki & Carline, they seemed to get hurt the most & yet had the better set of morals.
Worth a read though, I think!
