I haven't read it yet but maybe the Flytes in Brideshead Revisited?

``Laurie (laurielynette) | 1040 comments "The Summer of the Barshinskys" was along that line as well.

Rachel | 1532 comments I would recommend:

The Go-Between by L.P. Hartley

A Season in Purgatory by Dominick Dunne

The Bellwether Revivals by Benjamin Wood

And maybe The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenides, although the family in that is very mysterious.

In Anna Karenina, the Scherbatskys are a very seductive family. Levin was in love with each daughter for a time.
