Dear Reader, It’s always wonderful to return to a favorite place. That’s how I feel about Bittersweet, Oregon, the fictional setting for my 1990s trilogy, Forever Family, now collected here in one volume with a new title—Envious! I’m delighted to revisit Bittersweet in the company of Bliss, Katie, and Tiffany—three women who’ve just discovered they are half-sisters . . . Bliss Cawthorne is John Cawthorne’s only legitimate daughter, but her father’s wealth has complicated matters. Mason Lafferty believed he wasn’t good enough for the boss’s daughter and broke Bliss’s heart after saving her life. Yet now he’s back in Bittersweet, determined to make her trust him again. Tiffany Santini is widowed and struggling to raise two children after a car accident. That doesn’t mean she needs interference from her powerful brother-in-law. And Katie Kincaid is too busy wrangling her rambunctious son to get involved with the enigmatic cowboy next door. Then there’s the mystery at the heart of Bittersweet—the recent disappearance of an elderly local, Isaac Wells, who has vanished without trace, casting a dark cloud over all their lives . . . Join me in Bittersweet as these three very different, independent women try to escape the shadows of their pasts . . . Lisa Jackson

Chapter Four reads Teresa Brennan's 'foundational fantasy' as a key feminist reworking of Kleinian envy, and introduces a distinction between what I call 'basic' and surplus envy. The fifth and final chapter engages with Jessica Benjamin's work on envy, gender and recognition, as an example of the reanimation of the concept of 'envy' from the perspective of relational psychoanalysis, and its contribution to a robust critical feminism. On the basis of this rich array of feminist adaptations I argue that the psychoanalytic concept of envy deserves to be rehabilitated from earlier simplistic readings of it as the product of misogynistic thought, and to be recognized as a highly productive tool for feminist analysis.
